Kathy (Kathy89), do you know what types of minus prescription 1.74 index can deal or cope with and what point the minus prescription is too much to thin down? I always thought at -10 it can still achieve a good look but pushing -10 would cause issues.
It is never too much to thin down, the higher the rx is the thicker the lens will be (if you take the same material and the same base). For -10 you should look for brands that can make the lower base (usually 1 or 2, the lower the better), you should choose the flatter frame possible and the narrower frame possible, the best fit is what sits exactly on your face and not too wide on the sides. 1.74 and 1.7 are the best choices.
