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.
Both same index, same degree. Everything same. Well paid le, so just take it as lesson next time ask more around before deciding

Hi, considering to get a pair of specs for aesthetic . Lens probably will get those that cut off the blue light. Only wearing when facing pc during work. Where should I make? Note important that know how to match my face ( square ) . Where should I go and estimate frame and lens cost ? Don't mind to spend abit more if required . Thanks

Hi,

Heard of Rodenstock frame? Understand it is made in Germany but how does it compare to Mykita in terms of weight and pricing? Mykita is very light but seems not much variety. Many thanks.

Hi bros, can anyone recommend any reputable shop in JB that carries mykita? Looking to get a pair of progressive lens together with the frame. The cost here is really high. TIA.

I'm totally supporting jap specs, no more rip-off prices from Luxoticca-owned brands and local shops...

Made a pair from jin's at ¥6k, abt $75. Good quality acetate, 1.70 hi index. In sg, cant even get one side of a 1.7 lens for that price...

Heading to Tokyo pretty soon.. Can anyone recommend any spec shop to hit? Budget around 300-400 ish. Looking to get a frame with thin metallic sides and big rectangular (plastic) tortoise shell kinda frame. I think Olivers peoples have Smth similiar. Thanks in advance!
U dun need 300-400
150 max for a good quality frame like oliver ppl, up to 1.74 hi index (need to wait for 1 week, if 1.7 can get immediately)
Check out jin's, owndays
