Zeiss lens for short sighted + reading glass with 700deg @ 1.67 = $1350??

So expensive ?

Your astigmatism very high?
Get crizal or even non branded len if you want to save cost. Request for discount, normally they will knock at least 10% off rrp

Hey bro! Crizal is just the coating of the lens. The brand is actually varilux/essilor. Non branded lens got difference also in terms of reading area and peripheral distortion.. so kinda depends on what he needs. Apart from zeiss can also consider Hoya lenses.

Aside, such progressive lenses cover up Til -4 to -600 astig iirc, need to check again. Should be to reduce the thickness of 700 degrees of your lenses probably.

Thanks for correcting me. Only know "crizal" is comparatively cheaper to other brands.

Wanna check with the pros here.

I have a pair of spectacles but the frame don't have those "nose holder" kind. Then when i wear, it will always slide down a little. Its actually a Ray Ban frame. Got such thing as those stick on nose holder can stick on the frame?

Because my degree still the same so don't need to waste money get another frame or make a new set.

Hi experts, I'm just a student w limited budget. I have made my specs all cheaply <$150. Even now in uni im still using my army specs.

All the nice specs people wearing in uni make me gian to upgrade.

I dont need famous brands, just a sturdy fashionable frame and affordable.

Any recommendations? Dont mind online or going down shops to try.

thanks in advance !!

Wayfarer style? Or those really thin ones? If thick frame can consider fixing permanent nose pads. Meaning like other frames with the metal nose pad.

Not really. As Long as you don't mind the brand, there should be a big range for you..

I haven't order from this shop.

I ordered this and another 2 from the shop, to see which is suitable for me

http://c.b1wt.com/h.VOJRpH?cv=6sl6MohYrP&sm=bd4568

it's less than 10 bucks.

order and ship through ezbuy.

order 1 extra once you had fitted the lense, in case it breaks.
