People with high prescriptions often struggle a lot when shopping for eyeglasses. If you choose unsuitable frame materials and styles, your glasses will have a short life span and will be uncomfortable to wear. For people who need to wear glasses often, this can be a hassle. In this article, we will share how people with high prescriptions should choose their glasses.
Do not choose oversize frames
People with high prescriptions will have thick lenses. The prismatic effect at the edge of the lens can distort your vision. If the difference between the left and right eye prescription is too significant will also cause weight imbalance. So try to choose glasses with small frames to reduce the area of the lenses.
Choose light metal for your glasses
People with high prescriptions must choose their glasses as light as possible and choose strong materials. As the lenses are heavier, the frame is best to choose titanium material to make wearing more comfortable. Titanium is the lightest and less deformable choice in eyeglass frames.
Choose thin lenses
If your eye SPH is more than 5.00, you must choose lenses with an index of at least 1.67. If the prescription is higher, then you need 1.74 lenses. Thin lenses can reduce the prismatic effect of glasses and make the field of vision clearer. And it reduces weight.
