The thinnest plastic lens material
Standard plastic spectacle lenses have done a satisfactory job for many years in correcting vision, but new materials and modern technology have enabled Kodak Lens to develop a range of Kodak Thin & Lite Lenses in single vision, bifocal and varifocal designs.
Kodak Thin & Lite Lenses are up to 65% thinner and 45% lighter than standard plastic lenses, making your glasses better looking and also more comfortable to wear.
The Kodak Thin & Lite Lens materials range from 1.56 index to 1.74 index. As a rough guide the higher the index number the thinner the lens, but choice of frame will also affect the finished thickness of your lenses.
Kodak Thin&Lite compared to standard lenses
Kodak Thin & Lite Lens - 1.56
Up to 38% flatter, 32% lighter and 30% thinner than standard plastic lenses
Due to the aspheric nature of the 1.56 lens, it is actually thinner than a 1.6 non-aspheric lens. Aspheric design allows flatter, thinner lenses and enhanced vision. Kodak Thin & Lite 1.56 lenses come with RLX Plus® as standard.
Kodak Thin & Lite Lens - 1.59
Up to 10 x stronger. 34% lighter and 24% thinner than standard plastic lenses
These lenses are impact reistant and 10 times stronger than the standard plastic lenses, making them ideal for sport and perfect for children of any ages. The strength means they are also ideal for fashionable rimless frames.
Kodak Thin & Lite Lens - 1.6
Up to 55% flatter, 40% lighter and 36% thinner than standard plastic lenses
Kodak Thin & Lite 1.6 Lenses come with RLX Plus® as standard. Unlike the majority of high index lenses, Kodak Thin & Lite 1.6 Lenses offer 100% protection against the sun's harmful UV rays as standard.
Kodak Thin & Lite Lens - 1.67
Up to 53% flatter, 45% lighter and 45% thinner than standard plastic lenses
Kodak Thin & Lite 1.67 Aspheric Lenses are one of the thinnest and lightest plastic lenses available in the Kodak Lens range. Ideally they should be combined with a Kodak CleAR Lens Coating or Kodak Clean 'N' CleAR lens Coating.
