Shine and see, don't have.. Hmm...
You might need to tilt the lens and see if you're able to spot the logo on the lens, but there's a chance that there might be no logo on the lens even if it's real Hoya lens. Cause if the lens is cut by the shop themselves instead of sending to Hoya lab, there will not be any Hoya logo engraving on the lens.

EyeZen lens available in most optical shop? My hoya lens already cost me $500 and my degree is only 100+ on each side.. If EyeZen lens is good then I will not go for hoya..

Can eyezen add transition?

Eyezen lens is available in most optical shops and possible to have it in transitions too.

Why rayban frames so expensive. Is it wise to import frame (so its 20% cheaper) and ask shops like capitol/nanyang to fit the lens for you?

the logo is there by default. but if small frame spect shop might cut if off.

There's a drop in rayban frames recently. Most shops will offer a 20% discount too, so if the imported frame is also 20% cheaper, then don't really sound like a good idea, cause when you bring in your own frame, optical shop will not be liable shd there be any breakage of the frame during the cutting of the lens.

Sorry, my mistake. Actually for Hoya lens, there's no logo for normal single vision lens, unless it's the premium kind, it'll come with a card.

Hello, not sure if I'm on the correct platform so please bear with me if I'm on the wrong platform to ask this.

Is this something like lasik? Will it wear out or it'll be permanent

Recommended retail price for Eyezen Trans for that degree is $350. Total spending will depends on the frame you choose too. (:
