Anyone knows where to make just the lens at a cheap price? I only have one pair of spectacles and usually they will need to take away the spectacles to make the lens right? (Other than owndays that can do it within 20mins but $198 for hi index is quite steep for me)

$198 can do a brand new specs at some shop already, they wouldn't need to take away ur specs to do a new one for u.

Any idea where to donate, recycle or trade in old glasses? Rather branded but already 4-5 years old

I think holiday plaza yong ming cheaper.
1.6 index normal lens maybe can. Most spects shop only keep normal 1.6 index lens. If their inventory have, then can collect same day.

Saw quite alot ppl at yong ming at holiday plaza. Bought my spects from ban eyecare.
Lee cooper frame and Blue whale lens 500degrees 1.67index for RM660.
Another Korean plastic frame + Hoya lens 1.6index, forgot price.

Having doubts about their honesty.They say blue whale lens is US brand, but when I go home n Google check, blue whales is their local brand. Their website, server, factory, distributors, all in KL. When I ask them, they say is cause the lens company is acting as middleman, which I have trouble believing. The Hoya lens for the other frame, they also never give us authencity card, nor can I find Hoya trademark on the lens, need to go see other optician see if the lens is indeed Hoya since their trademark isn't that easy to see.

Went on Sunday, they say coming wed latest thur can collect, will WhatsApp us. On wed, no msg, fb msg them, reply me cannot confirm.
Thur, noon I at Jb customs liao they then msg me say courier problem lens can only come on Friday noon.
Friday evening they then update us say ready.

The recommended retail price is $210, but some shops may offer a 10-20% off the lens.

If you just wana make the lens only, there's $50 at Hougang central but ultimately prices dependent on factors like your degree and the coating of the lens you require, but will need you to place your frame down. Alternatively you can make a brand new pair at $78 and likewise, prices dependent on the quality of frame, your degree and the coating of the lens.
