If you bought the lenses for 300 purely then you saved quite abit.. to check the engraving.. https://i.imgur.com/V4cqIKJ.jpg

Look at where the light is focus on, you should see some faint engraving...
oh, you mean i wasn’t chopped? since i saw people who paid $280, so i thought i was like partially chopped haha

I found local optician Crizal prevencia @119sgd and Hoya hilux @154sgd would they be a better bargain?

Actually what’s the difference between hoya hilux nulux stellify etc? The same optician is offering Hoya stellfiy at 84 but it’s Hoya’s most basic lens right?
I only know Hilux is the high end tier :x

Hilux and nulux is same, just used for different purposes. High tier is the coating which is the hvll coating aka high visio Long life. Compared to their old hvp coating.

I only know Hilux is the high end tier :x

Eyewear optics at thomson plaza.
I'm in no way affiliated to them in anyway, and it was after i paid then we both realized we were from edmw.

But good CS locally nowadays hard to find already, must sarpork if really have the effort.

For me, lenses and frames is whole island mark up gao gao liao, but if that's the case where i have to let them earn, I'll at least find a place where they deserve to earn them, just my 2 cents.

Hmm I have some pictures here, See if any catches your eye.


Not from my workplace though, will just recommend you there if there's any you like!
Otherwise go other look for Marius morel, acoustic line... more Budget friendly metal Harry Potter style frames!
