    Polycarbonate lenses are known to be safer and thinner but rather lack optical clarity. And also, Polycarbonate lenses are also known to be thinner and lighter than traditional type lenses. Polycarbonate lenses offers you total protection from UV light and radiations. On the contrary, ordinary plastic offers you minimum protection from UV light. If you use plastic lenses, you may need to invest in antiglare material to protect you from any harmful rays. So in my opinion, you should choose Polycarbonate lenses. and they are no so expensive, so you can buy them.
