Buy it from any good Opticals, dont buy online... you wont get warranty and sometimes you may get cheated....

Can anyone recommend shops with ray ban wayfarer-like shapes? Been to queensway and the ones i liked were too tacky (stars on the sides) or have too thick of a nose bridge..

I have also been wearing Tag Reflex for many years. Light and comfortable. Made my older oakley weighs like an elephant. Very relutant to move away from the Tag because of the weight. However, the new range of Tag has a new nosepad design, which gives me a headache after a full day of wearing.

Just made a pair of byWP (sort of a sister brand to IC Berlin). It is almost lighter than the Tag reflex! After a few trip back to the shop to fine adjust the temple and change the nosepad, it nows fit like a charm.



Frame itself about $300+.

jonlee's new spec looks exactly like ic!berlin except that the end temple is hooked instead of straight & the side temple is not as curved. How is the hinge formed? Is it the same mechanism as icberlin?
oakley's titanium frames still weigh rather heavy i think maybe due to the thicker structure. Even though you can say tat its v durable against breakage, but how many of you will wear a frame until it breaks? Most imt aspect is the comfort on top of looking nice & proper.

as a consumer and customer of oakley eyewear, my first pair was 8 years ago chop top 2.0. sadly to find that the frames quality and colouring has fell across the whole range.

likely due to factory moved to china.

but again, most companies make stuffs have their factories in china dont they? =\

Nowadays for rimless spectacle frame there are usually two kind of fitting, one is screw and nut, the other is some kind of plastic snap on. So does anyone know which fitting is better? Pros and Cons?

not sure about the frame but Carl Zeiss single vision lenses ate :
1.5 - $140
1.6 - $240
1.67 - $320
1.74 - $560

transistions starts from $330 and photofusion $280.

i believe u are talking about screw mounting and washer mounting.

screw mounting are used by most brandes. its the most basic design and some classy brands like cartier have special decorated screws to improve the "looks"

easy to crack lenses when screwed too tightly, every few months it will loosen.

washers generally fits better with little or no movement to the lenses. no extra pressure on the lenses which might crack it. diffucult to gets loose but still does in 1-2 years.


but if u get a top quality frame, chances are the screws designs are better than average washer mounting frames.

hey guys, any recommended optician who carry more fashionable frames? does not need to be branded as long as decent quality.
I'm looking for plastic frames similar to this : PO2996V - 108 - Light havana - Acetate - All Styles Collection - Persol Eyewear - USA

btw can we find persol prescription glasses in sg?
