FOCUS ONVISIONby Dr. Mark SkowronSLIM CHANCEFor those who have a strong lens prescription, "high-index" eyeglass lenses arean especially good option. These lenses are thinner and lighter than conventionallenses, and are significantly more comfortable and attractive.

FOCUS ON VISION by Dr. Mark Skowron SLIM CHANCE For those who have a strong lens prescription, "high-index" eyeglass lenses are an especially good option. These lenses are thinner and lighter than conventional lenses, and are significantly more comfortable and attractive. For instance, a nearsighted individual needs a corrective lens that is thin in the middle and thicker at the edge. The stronger the prescription is, the thicker the periphery of the lens is expected to be. However, because high-index lenses bend light much more efficiently than ordinary lenses, less lens material is needed. As a result, high-index lenses have a smaller profile and weigh less. High-index lenses with an aspheric design reduce the magnified "bug-eye" effect that often comes with conventional lenses in strong farsighted prescriptions Most of today's popular lens designs and features, including progressive lenses and photochromic lenses, are available in high-index materials. But there are exceptions, so ask your eye doctor or optician for details. To learn more, please call SKOWRON EYE CARE. Our goal is to help you maintain a lifetime of healthy, clear, comfortable vision by using the latest in technology from in-vogue eyewear and eyeglasses to complex contact lenses to LASIK eye surgery.
