There are many different lens materials ranging from conventional plastic and glass to state-of-the-art High Index materials that make lenses thinner and/or lighter than ever before possible. A lens' index of refraction is the measure of how steeply a material bends light. The higher the index of refraction, the more steeply it bends light; hence, the thinner the lens can be made.
