Owndays boutiques in Singapore
Their quality is low. i spent $200 for a pair of black frame and the nose rim came off in less than 1 year.

Is that the exact name of the place? I couldn't find it on Google.

EDIT: I did some more research and I think you are talking about "New China Opticians" located 3 Coleman Street, #B1-12, Peninsula Shopping Centre. Can you confirm?

If spectacles keep slipping downwards when wearing after sometime, what to adjust?

Wearing thin metal frame that has plastic nosepads
best you can do is tell optician to narrow the distance between the nosepads, change to a silicone material for less slippage, and also adjust the temple end to hook down and hook in for more grasp at the back. If still fails, means the frame not designed well. Cant do much after that. Just keep pushing it back up yur face lo.

I asked 2 shops at City Sq before. Crizal transition lenses 1.67 cost between $940-$999 ringgit, this is for my degree... more than 500 on both sides, 1.67 index.

For clear lenses $620-$670 ringgit, below 500 on both sides, 1.6 index.

* The prices above has not included discount from the individual shop.


For SG, I asked, transition is about S$500-S$600 a pair for 500 degree or more on both sides, 1.67 index.


It is cheaper to make glasses in Malaysia I think.

If your lenses are of the same index it will be charge by pair, unless u use diff index on each eye then they may show u the cost of individual lens... I m not very sure about this, but it makes more sense if they do it this way. For me is 1 side is abt 500 degree n the other side is abt 900 degree.. If use transition lens will have to take both same index with is 1.67, restriction from crizal... If I take the normal clear type will be one side 1.6 and the other 1.67 so that both thickness are balanced.
