    My prescription is +6.25 both eyes.
    Is this a better choice than say 1.74 hi-index plastic ? And is there a big noticable difference in thickness between the 2 ?

      Unfortunately high index glass is not yet available for those with a high positive prescription. You would need to stick with the 1.74 plastic.

    I am nearsighted (about -10), and I wear contact lenses for normal vision. But, I like having a pair of glasses for times when contacts are uncomfortable. I have previously bought high index lenses in Singapore while traveling. At the moment, no trip is planned, and I am looking for a way to buy high index lenses.
