If I'm not wrong, usually the air mark is easily visible. However it depends on your degree and fitting. Upon edging, the air mark might be edged away.

I'm getting my pair of Eyezen too! Excited

hihi

i just bought a pair of glasses using the 1.67 Eyezen lenses from Essilor, i noticed that watermarks/icons on the lenses. Other that the authenticity card, is there any other way to be certain that this is indeed Eyezen lenses from Essilor? I read some posts that indicate using the blow test but i dont see anything on the lense after it.

thanks for the help!

Looking to change my spectacles as my crizal coating has started wearing off after 3 years. (On that note, is it possible to reapply or remove the coating? Starting to impair my vision - See picture)

Already have the frames, just looking for the best value for the lenses. Degree is high, any recommendations for cheap-ish lenses? Previous lenses have always cost a bomb.

EDIT: Do not mind going to JB too!

My degree if anyone is interested (probably increased, this was taken in 2014);

R - 11.00 - 2.00 x10
L - 9.75 - 1.25 x15

Last time I had the same issue after two years. I swore I won't buy Crizal anymore after that. Boycott. Pricey and not lasting.

Reapplying coating is not possible so it's time to change a new pair of lenses. At least yours lasted 3 years, not bad! Best to have it checked. Can consider 1.67RX or else 1.74. A normal 1.67 cannot fit your prescription for the right eye.(based on your current prescription)

Hi bro, hope you understand that it's still a service that was provided to you to get your eye tested. Just like going to a doctor for a consultation, you will be charged for consultation. Usually if you are charged for consultation and if you make a pair of spectacles within a period of time, the cost of the consultation will be waived. Some places do charge even more so just a heads up.

thx 4 the clarification. I did pay up with no question asked. just hope to find a reliable shop to get my glasses made. so at tat price is it reasonable? from the price list shown lens was progressive plus i think 690, +200 transition, blue something coat offset worth 50, and frame saw price tag 200+ total 1050.
