Thank you for the question. With a prescription as low as OD -1.00/OS -0.75 I would recommend polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is the most impact resistant lens available. Polycarbonate lenses are highly recommended for kids, sportsmen and military. This lens material is thinner & lighter than CR-39 or glass. It blocks UV rays and anti-scratch coating is included. The recommended sphere range is +0.25 to -4.00.

Please let me know if I can help further.
