Thanks Gangsterkia.

So does Kodak have a progressive + photochromic + blue light blocking (not just a coating that reduces it a bit) option? That sounds promising - hope to hear more tomorrow.

Yeah, Hoya ID and Mystyle are likely outside of my price range.. But I guess the real question here is whether there is a way to objectively compare progressive lens? The pictures depicting the corridor for intermediate and near vision are probably exaggerated. At least within the same brand, higher grades are presumably better. Across brands, is there a way to compare? If there's no way to compare, I don't know how to select which brand/grade.

I don't need the transitions brand. Have tried some generic photochromic lens in the past, and I think having some darkening is enough to keep me from squinting in bright sunlight.

My colleague advised that skill is important as he went made a few pairs at different shops until ending up with one that is still relatively comfortable. And ya, my internet research suggests it is a black art where the face shape, how I wear the glasses, distance from face and nose pad positioning etc all play a part. So if it really is a black art, I have this mental model that getting the fitting and measurements taken by experienced and skilled pro is really the most important thing and I'll have to travel for it lor.

Thank you!
Hi bro!

We specialise in progressive lens troubleshooting.

We have 1st timers who are afraid to go on progressive lenses sign up to understand more about their eyes and progressive lenses too.

Non-obligatory 1 hr session, we check on the following:
  • Assessment of all your previous spectacles, to determine cause of discomfort.
  • Refraction (Distance, Intermediate, Reading)
  • Strabismus check (Phoria/tropia)
  • Ocular Motility Assessment

If you decide to go for progressive lenses with us, we do have progressive lenses of similar performance to Zeiss @ close to half the price.
