High index 1.67 Progressive Lenses work really well for people with strong perscriptions because they drastically reduce the weight and thickness of the lens. Their thinness allows them to work really well with drill-mount frames, or frames that connect the lenses directly to the tempal arms. Of note is that high index lenses are much more reflective than other lens types. In order to help with this, we include a free anti-reflective coating because we want you to love these lenses as much as we love you. We also throw in a free anti-scratch coating on all of our lenses and these lenses will protect your eyes from UVA and UVB rays.
Options for These Lenses
People seem to like to order clear lenses and add one of our tints, which is perfect for sunglasses or fashion. Just know that High Index lenses don't tint as dark as our other lens materials. Another option is to make these lenses photochromic, which means that they are clear indoors and are darkened when you go outside in the sun.

This is our second time to order but it won't be the last. The quality of these lenses are just great. I love the frames and others told me they couldn't use old frames, had to buy from them. Quality all the time. Thanks for this service.

This was the 2nd time I ordered from LENSFACTORY, and just like the first time the final product was excellent. It's not easy finding a local optical center to attach rimless frames to my strong prescription, but these folks did it without any problem at all. Two great experiences have not only made me a believer in ordering lenses online but they've also saved me a ton of money -- about $900! For regular, tinted, sunglasses requiring a highly professional focus, LENSFACTORY is outstanding.

I had some frames that I liked but no one wanted to just replace the lenses without selling me new frames. This service was just what I was looking for. I was very pleased with the results. The only issue I had was that after I sent my frames in to be worked on, I had to email them to make sure they had in fact received them and were working on them. I had already waited about two weeks and had heard nothing. After I reached out to them, I received routine updates on the process. Overall process took about one month.

I found frames that I liked & bought them...but everyone charges an arm & a leg for lenses (especially if you don't buy their frames). Was great to find this!! The glasses are perfect & they were reasonably priced!!

Frankly, I'm very happy with the lenses and will come back. However, it took just under four weeks (hence the 4/5 stars) from the moment they were mailed from my place until they got back. But again, worth the wait for an unbeatable price.

The entire process from beginning to end was just as the LensFactory website advertised.
I am looking forward to my next good experience!
