Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Ok. I'm just finishing up another question and will closely read yours and be right back...
Hi. I'm back and reading your post.....
it is just the chat acting up...if it continues we can switch to Q&A, but it is slower....it also tells me you are jumping in and out of chat every 15 seconds.....crazy computer :)
Well, you have a very high Rx...so even with high index plastic/glass your lenses will have a noticeable bulge in the back...it is just the nature of the beast.
The higher the refractive index of the material, the thinner the lens will be....but the rear bulge will always be there. So, it is just a matter of personal preference if you want to pay big bucks for the lenses to be a little bit thinner by using 1.74 index material. There is no brand name that is any better when it comes to the actual lens manufacturing...they are all made to the same high standards; once again it comes down to a personal/fashion issue.
Ok. I switch it over here.......you will see a screen that says your chat has ended...but don't worry, I'll be waiting for you on Q&A.
That system works a lot like 'text messaging' but, unlike the chat system, it almost never freezes up. We can continue to work on your question there. :o)
