Normally light is focussed on the retina at the back of the eye to form a sharp image.
Long-sightedness means the eye is too short and the light is focussed beyond the retina.
Lenses to correct this are thicker in the middle than at the edges.
In a strong prescription, the lenses can be particularly heavy and unsightly.
There are various ways to improve the appearance and minimise the weight of the lenses.
Choosing a small frame will help minimise the weight.
Secondly, consider lenses with a higher "refractive index".
This will also reduce the thickness and weight of the lenses.
Choosing lenses with an aspheric design will reduce the thickness further still.
Anti-reflection coatings can also improve the appearance and your vision through them.
