  • The lower your Abbe value is, the more your lenses will cause color distortion or “aberration”.
  • Aberration is where the edges of objects appear to blur, and colors will bleed from edges such that they appear to form rainbows.
  • If you have a very high prescription (below -8.00 or above +6.00) you probably need a higher index lens than 1.67. It will still be fairly thick with high index 1.67 lenses.

    I can not wear polycarbonate lenses. the aberrations are to distinct and I can’t adjust to them. the abbe values from poly to trivex are huge (30 to 43) but the index is closer (1.58 to 1.53). the numbers are close but are the thickness of lenses much thicker? high index at 1.60 or 1.67 index (are they significantly thinner than poly and trivex)? is there a huge difference from abbe values of 30 to 32 to 36 or 43? I need new glasses and i’m trying to find the most efficient and thorough situation to fit my needs. thank you.
