What Are High-Index Lenses?
High index lenses are eyeglasses lenses that are designed to be thinner and lighter than regular lenses. High-index lenses have a high refractive index than their conventional counterparts. So, they are generally recommended for people who have significantly high refractive errors and strong prescriptions for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
High-index lenses correct all types of refractive errors. And they are also available as single vision lenses, or a reading prescription that corrects presbyopia, such as in a bifocal or progressive lens.
High-index lens has a higher refractive index and which is ranging from 1.53 to 1.74. A lens with an index of 1.74 could be up to 50 percent thinner than a regular plastic lens with an index of 1.50.

What are bendable glasses called?
Bendable frames, or memory metal frames, are metal frames that can be twisted, bent, and shattered without breaking or losing their original shape. It's made of a kind of smart metal that has a memory. Its microstructure has two relatively stable states. At high temperatures, the alloy can be changed into any shape you want. Memory metals are mainly nickel-titanium alloy and other materials. The structure of these alloys varies with temperature in the solid-state, the shapes of these alloys can be changed as needed, and will automatically return to their original shape at a given temperature. One unique aspect is its ability to return to its original shape, although the frame has been twisted, bent, or crushed. They are lighter and more durable than traditional metal frames. The bendable frames are made of composite metal alloys for bending properties. These lenses can be twisted and bent, and when they are released, they return to their original shape.
Progressive lenses and single vision lenses
Single vision lenses are the most widely used optical lenses and are suitable for the general population.
Progressive lenses are suitable for below people.
① Myopia control lenses for teenagers. Progressive lenses are used to relieve visual fatigue and control the development speed of myopia.
