Choosing Your Eyeglass Lenses

Millions of people with vision issues rely on eyeglass lenses to see and experience the world in the best way possible. At FYidoctors, we offer a wide range of lenses that are created using a technology known as Internal Freeform, which uses 3D digital imaging software to scan your eyes and fuse your unique focal points onto the eyeglass lenses, offering sharper and more focused vision.

We also offer a variety of other lens types, including high-index, anti-reflective, progressives, photochromic, computer lenses and more. Click on any of the video topics to learn more about the various types of eyeglass lenses that are available from FYidoctors.

High-Index Glasses

High-index lenses are the perfect choice if you're looking for thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses. Available from FYidoctors, these lenses are particularly great if you have a strong eyeglass prescription or suffer from astigmatism, nearsightedness or farsightedness.

Most people who need eyeglasses require lenses that are thin in the center but thicker at the edge of the lens. The stronger the prescription, the thicker the edges, often resulting in a less visually appealing eyeglass design.

High-index lenses, however, are thinner and lighter than traditional lenses, using materials that allow them to bend light more efficiently and allowing you to see clearly without having to deal with a thick and unattractive eyeglass design.

Most high-index lenses also have what's known as an "aspheric design", which means they appear slimmer, creating a more attractive profile and reducing the magnified "bug-eye" look that often comes with wearing conventional lenses.

FYidoctors has a range of high-index lenses available that will have you looking and seeing in the best way possible.
