I can't rmb the rrp. But think 300 for the lens? Or lens and frame?
To authenticate eyezen, just look at the nasal and temporal area of your lenses a.k.a the right and left side of the lens. Should have some engraving on it. Easier to see under light!
Will check the price for you tomorrow!

Are you looking towards progressives? Single visions? Or antifatigues/digital lenses?
Each has their own classes/category!
no progressives or transition

just sth to protect eyes against computer n do night driving

i think just go for shamir blue zero. compared to other blue filter lenses in the market, their lenses absorb the blue light rather than reflect. Thus for certain individuals that do not like those too yellowish tint might opt to go for that lens. Also e.g. when photo taking wont have that much of a reflection from your glasses.

But that yellowish hue will not be that impt such that it helps in night driving AS usually night driving clarity is supposed to be enhanced when wearing such tinted lenses. So unless you want the full deal which is Zeiss Drivesafe lenses, i believe shamir Blue zero can solve your issue.

If you bought the lenses for 300 purely then you saved quite abit.. to check the engraving..

Look at where the light is focus on, you should see some faint engraving...

thanks!!

At that position, check your own glasses. You should see the engraving there
So do the same thing as your own glasses.

i got the crizal transitition lens 2 years back. when i bought it time, i can see there is logo if i hold my glasses under light. now under light, i can no longer see the logo. why is it? is it due to the fact that the coating has worn off?

Is it a Single vision? Or progressive?

Is it the Crizal logo? Trying creating a ''fog''/''mist'' on it by breathing on it and see if the logo is there. If not, then highly likely it has been worn off!

Right. Below the Dots should have some more engravings too.

Very expensive imho. Some cost more than the cost of frame. I rather wear contacts then wear over their sunglass..certain lenses also got power restriction, unless you custom make lenses from other lens lab.

Just my opinion!
