    Glass is definitely heavier but is it better, optically.

    So, for the same prescription, would plastic or glass be thinner
    or would both types of lenses have the same thickness?

    Yes! I would try to opt for glass after cataract surgery whenever
    the OD sets it up. I am highly myopic now so the weight of glass
    wouldn't be a problem if the prescription becomes quite "small".
