Hello, does anyone know what is the average cost of a pair of specs if I purchase it in JB? Is it worth it to purchase it across the border or is it better to buy it here? Looking to save a bit of money... Hahaha

Thanks for your inputs bro! I went ahead and got the Zeiss Digital Lenses for 400 and a fairly cheap frame for 90 to fit my budget. Wanted to try try the Zeiss brand. Is the lens price reasonable?

Hey there, for the first part, yes those white spots highly likely is your multicoating that has peeled. However I seen cases of individuals many years but coating not peeling much thus, thus there could be other factors affecting it too! But usually it last for 2-3 years on average..

500 for zeiss is more than enough but of course depending on your degree. And the type of frame you will choose! Digital lenses/eyezen/lenses that are antifatigue might help. E.g. Trueform nulux active, Shamir relax, zeiss energize me. Note that these Brandís I mentioned are the more known ones, there are of course other labs with similar lens design(anti fatigue) but cheaper. But quality of course....😅

Not easy to find frames like mykita/Lindberg so I believe maybe invest in one? Haha then can last you Long!

Hope this helps!

Haha probably won't regret your choice. Depending on what index you got for your lens. But sounds pretty reasonable. I believe a 1.6?

Hello, recently I noticed 3mm dents on both sides of my head, below the temple, 20cm behind my eyes, while wearing spectacles; should i be worried, and can i do anything for it?

The spectacle shop that sold me this pair simply told me this frame is already spring-loaded, and that they can't do anything else about it as the frame widths are fixed, then recommended me to try contact lens or lasik instead.

Oh what happened to yours? Arms dislodge(usually most common)? And under warranty?

Hi, I am assisting someone who is currently not in town to survey which of our local optical carries wide range of Mykita frame. Not looking for round frame. Or any expert can share which brand has very light frame? Thanks in advance.

Hi. Will wearing a spec with wrong bridge size cause pain around the eyebrow region? I have a wife and high nose bridge. Looking for rectangular shape specs. What are the types should I worry about? Thanks.

Quoted 230 for blu-ray protection lens plus frame.

1.6 index lens
600 degree 75 Astigma L
550 degree 275 Astigma R

Did I get a good deal or did I become a carrot?
