    I have a question regarding a pair of single vision spectacles I am
    thinking of purchasing from Lenscrafters. The frames are rimless,
    drillmounted and my doctor has recommended a 1.67 high index lense with
    anti-reflective coating. The cost for the frame was $159.95 and the
    lenses was $340.00. With a AAA discount the total cost was $349.96

    My prescription is:

    OD -4.25 -1.00 X 001
    OS -4.25 -1.50 X 004

    Is is neccessary for me to have the 1.67 high inex lense and is the
    $349.96 a decent price for these frames and lenses?

    With that pescription, you dont need high index. $340 for the lenses is
    way overpriced, they will only be a milimeter thinner. Just go for
    regular cr-39 index, they should be thin at only -4.25 unless your
    frame is huge or something. I wouldnt consider high index worth it till
    someone is like -8 or worse.
