Is there like a list of optical shops I can go to? The one you mentioned quite far for me, I was wondering if there is one in the west.

Hi specs gurus

Are crizal and essilor actually the same lens maker ?

My first spec lens is by crizal. But 2nd spec which will collect in a few days, is by essilor.

Was told that essilor is by crizal. Or somewhere along the line. Not sure if i listened wrongly.

slightly below retail. my degree also low...end of day is whether u willing to spend bo. cant commend how good it is because just went to order today and it takes 2 weeks...also took the leap with the duravision platinum coating. its the most expensive lens when compared with the others like nikon,hoya,essilor,seiko

heading to kwong shin later to make my zeiss later....zeiss photofusion seems to darken faster as compared to transisitons....and have afew choices of add ons lolz....currently using rodenstock colormatic
Went to Kwong Shin , chatted to Sandy and she quoted $290 for progressive with crizal lens.
I think is quite fair for the price as I made my progress with normal lens @ Tampinese for $450 together with Emporio Armani frame, it's expensive compared with the price to KS
