Hoya has 3 tier of lenses. The most expensive being the one with hvll coating, followed by stellify with hvp coating and finally Pentax with their INC coating. Pentax is the more Budget one, stellify is affordable and what I am using now.
However I have another frame which is using the hvll coating and an anti fatigue lens.

Also as I always mentioned, I am not a sensitive to clarity vision kind of person so between hvll and hvp I have no preference. Even the index 1.55 and 1.6 which usually have slight difference in abbé value also doesn't affect me. But of course probably my degree also 300 not that bad..

i mean if Crizal and Hoya both having the same addon feature...

same degree, same thickness, everything same...

Hoya very expensive?

This is very subjective. Based on the shop integrity TBH...but essilor and zeiss can tell. Hoya also got certain engraving but usually is at the extreme end of the unfinished lenses thus when the lens is edged/cut to fit into frame then the engraving will be gone.

Also certain Brand’s lenses card do not state the name of the cx, and degree. Just the card stating the lens and authenticity. But of course there are others that do. But for names engraving on the card, usually progressives then have but must request.

An example. No name just the card power and all. Depending, if cx wants, the shop can easily request for it. But for single vision lenses usually no such thing. From my knowledge zeiss should do it.

Thanks for clarifying.. Previously I bought Crizal transition the warranty card is just a normal card.

Hello guys,

I got my specs and lenses about 2 years back. Lenses are zeiss with blue light control.

Unfortunately one side of my eye is deteriorating and I would like to change the degree of one lens.

Is there a way of just changing one side? Can I go to any other shop that sells zeiss lenses?

Hi bro, definitely! U can just change one side BUT since its 2 years ago, yellowing of the lens might occur and thus unless you are fine with 1 side clear and 1 side slightly yellow. Then you are good to go with just changing one side.

Most optical shop should carry zeiss lenses.

Hope this helps!

Blue filter lenses/computer lenses.

Different lens companies have their own signature trademark for their lenses.

e.g. essilor-prevencia, hoya-blue control, zeiss- blue protect.- common ones.

Hi Gangsterkia,

Are Hi-Top lenses good? My regular optician only provides this brand.
