How thick would plastic lenses be on a round size 48 frame?
Q: I want to get plastic lenses because of the high abbe value.
The glasses I'm using currently are hi-index plastic and while it's ok, it doesn't feel as good as my older plastic pair.
I'm aware it will be thicker than hi-index, I was just curious if anyone had an idea of how thick? My prescription is -5.50 -1.50 and the frames are 48-21-145.A:
A plastic lens, with your prescription, unpolished, is about 11-12 mm at the thickest point, at 70 mm size.
Because your frame is 48, it will be thinner, about 6-8 mm, thinner at the spherical part, so I think a plastic frame would be a good idea to hide the thickness.
Hope this helps,
