Refractive index of ophthalmic lenses

Refractive index of ophthalmic lenses

The refraction index of the opthalmic lenses determines the thickness of the lens based on the gradation of the same.

For several years now, the most used lenses are made of material

organic / unbreakable.

The most used refraction indices are 1.50-1.56-1.60-1.67 and 1.74.

From this it can be deduced that the greater the refractive index of the lens, and lower will be the thickness of it.

How to choose the appropriate index of your lenses

The choice depends mainly of the your correction

Mild correction from -2 a +2 : index 1.50

Average correction from -4 a +4 : index 1.60

High correction from -6 to +6: index 1.67

Very high correction above 6: index 1.74
