Get Name Necklace II

Last week we touched upon the importance of accessories. We said that jewelry was a main accessory and that accessories can so easily change your overall look. One accessory website that features great jewelry is Get Name Necklace.

While we did blog about some of their offerings recently, we discovered some more great styles and pieces on this one stop shopping website. We spoke about their wonderful name plate necklaces and how they are not only trendy, but how they serve as an excellent gift to friends and loved ones. In our last article we touched upon other styles that were great for gifts and promises to lovers, too.

Now, we explored the site again and found some very noteworthy pieces to share. Again, excellent for gifts for yourself and others! Treat a friend, a family member or yourself! Infinity necklaces with an initial are just perfect for gifting! They represent the longevity of a relationship, whether it be with a friend or a loved one or a lover! Infinity is exactly what it sounds like, “To infinity and beyond,” to forever, no matter the type of relationship. Something of this nature has real meaning, and a deep meaning at that. A sense of commitment. Furthermore, design wise, these necklaces are just beautiful! It is sure to change your mood, to radiate that feeling of loving someone forever, which is an instant style pick - me - up. If you are happy you are sure to be stylish, happiness is always in style. It’s just the cherry on top that these necklaces also look cool!

This website continues on with their amazing personalized items. One products that we found to be especially cool, stylish and up to date in terms or touching up one the coolest trends, are their Name Crowns. The Personalized Name Crown Necklace Sterling Silver is yet another great gift for yourself or another. Crowns are absolutely trending. Often seen on Instagram are “King” and “Queen” emojis and verbiage. Plus with an American woman, Meghan Markle, now in the British Royal Family and Royal Baby Mania at a height, crown symbols are seemingly seen everywhere. The ability to personalize the ones on this website are definitely that extra special touch!

Overall, we found this website to again be an excellent place to shop for personalized gifts that feel personal to the recipient and show that you went that extra mile to make any gift feel personal to that person. Of course, if you are buying for yourself, these pieces go the extra mile to be exclusive to you!

How to Choose the Right Lenses Index for your Glasses with Jupitoo

right lenses index for your glasses

How to choose the right lenses index for your glasses

Common eyeglasses lenses can be classified into glass lens, resin lens, special lens and space lens, and the 1.50, 1.56, 1.60, 1.67 and 1.74 labeled on lenses are their refractive indexes.

What's index lens?

The refractive index of the lens indicates the efficiency of lens material on bending or refracting light. A higher refractive index indicates that light is more bended and spends more time on passing through the lens. Also, a higher refractive index can deal with higher prescription glasses. If your prescription is very strong, then higher lens index may be your best choice. 

High Index Lenses

Lenses with high indexes can be thinner and lighter than traditional plastic lenses. Compared with traditional lenses, highly index lenses can bend the light more efficiently, so they can be thinner while maintaining the same correction power. 

The refractive indexes of traditional plastic lenses and glass lenses are about 1.5 and 1.52 respectively. Any lens material with a refractive index higher than these numbers are considered a highly index lens material. 

How to Choose the Right Glasses Lens

Differences among different lens indexes can generate great impacts. Thicker lenses are more affordable, but they can only handle lower vision correction demand. Thinner lenses are lighter and more fashionable, but the price is also higher. They can satisfy various vision correction demands, including higher prescriptions. This guidance will teach you how to read the prescription: How to Read Your Eyeglass Prescription

1.5 Index Lens – Standard lens

If you are looking for a more cost-efficient lens with a weak prescription, these lenses may be your correct answer. Lenses with this index can deal with prescriptions with an SPH correction of +/- 2.25 and lower or a CYL correction of +/- 1.50 and lower. 

1.57 Index Lens

For those with slightly stronger prescriptions, these lenses may be a better choice than standard lenses. These lenses are thinner and stronger than lenses with a 1.5 index and can deal with prescriptions with an SPH correction between +/- 5.00 and +/- 4.00 and a CYL correction of +/- 3.00 and lower.

1.59 Index Lens

Lenses with this index are made from special polycarbonate materials. This means that they can provide 100% UV protection. They are more durable and resistant to shock, which make them an ideal choice for most people.

Sometimes, customers ordering rimless glasses or semi-rimless glasses containing 1.59 polycarbonate lenses may complain about color difference issues. Moreover, 1.59 polycarbonate lenses are more vulnerable than 1.50, 1.57 and 1.53 lenses since its material is softer than others. However, you can choose some lens coatings to protect the lens. Please refer to this guidance to learn about how to choose the lens coating: Lens coatings: UV, Scratch resistant, Anti-reflective

1.6 Index Lens

These fashionable ultra-thin lenses are ideal for strong prescriptions or very thin eyeglasses frame. These lenses are suitable for prescriptions with an SPH correction between +/- 4.25 and +/- 6.75 and a CYL correction between +/- 2.25 and +/- 3.00.

1.67 Index Lens

These lighter and thinner lenses can avoid distortion of eyes due to stronger prescriptions. If you have a very strong prescription, this may be your best choice. We usually recommend that these lenses are applicable to prescriptions with an SPH correction between +/- 7.00 and +/- 9.00 and a CYL correction between +/- 3.25 and +/- 4.00.

1.74 Index Lens

Our thinnest lenses are designed for prescriptions with the highest power. These lenses are applicable to prescriptions with an SPH correction of +/- 9.25 and above and a CYL correction between +/- 4.25 and +/- 6.00.

You can refer to this graph for choosing correct lenses with the optimal refractive index:
Glasses with the optimal index lenses
Although lenses with high refractive indexes are thinner than traditional lenses, their final thickness still depends on your prescription and some other factors, including: your Pupillary Distance(How to Measure Your PD(Pupillary Distance) ), shape of the glasses frame, correction power, astigmatism power and axis, spherical or aspherical lenses and so on.

People looking for thinner lenses should pay more attention on dimensions and shape of the glasses frame. Thick lenses, especially those with high refractive indexes, can distort our eyes and the eye area. Therefore, people wearing thick lenses should choose round frames or oval framesto reduce such distortion as much as possible. 

Except lens refractive index, the abbe number should also be considered. The abbe number is a number used for evaluating the dispersive power of the optical system. A small abbe number means large dispersive power; on the contrary, larger abbe numbers indicate that the dispersive power is small.

The abbe number of lenses with 1.50 refractive indexes can reach 58. However, when it comes to lenses with 1.74 or a higher refractive index, the abbe number can drop to only 32-36. This means that thinner lenses can lower the true feeling of eyes on colors and reduce the comfort level since they have lower abbe numbers.
