In this report dispersion properties of different types of optical polymers are discussed on the base of measured refractive indices and the Cauchy-Schott approximation. A number of dispersion curves are presented in the visible and near infrared spectral regions between 400 and 1060 nm. A comparison with some optical glasses with similar refraction is performed. The nonlinear dependence of dn/dλ of polymer materials and test glasses on the wavelength is calculated and analyzed. Normalized dispersion curves at 550 nm and 880 nm are presented to illustrate better the dispersion of the polymers in the considered spectral regions, separately. Abbe numbers are calculated to exhibit the mean and partial dispersion.
