Haha not surprising. Some shops only have this/that amount of Brandís. But to support them, can always buy a frame from somewhere and go back make lens from them! Seiko is under Hoya too! Same as stellify and Pentax.
Hi Gangsterkia,
Didnít know Seiko is under Hoya too! Maybe I shall try to make over the causeway? Any idea, would it be cheaper as Singapore seems to be expensive. Thank you very much.

Must it be branded? If not there's a lot of Korean ones that fits your bill and cost 100 Plus??

Donít have to be branded but I was thinking branded would be more durable and tend to not leave marks on the nose area.

What Korean ones would you recommend?

Hi,

I've been reading around the past 10 pages about the different lens and frames.. Just wondering, if my L/R degree is about 2.25 both the same, with 0.5 astig on one side, is there a obvious difference between a 1.6 and 1.67 index?

Looking for some rectangular frames, any recommendations on where's a place with reasonable pricing? I'm currently on Monoqool frame, and i've been loving it since. Can't find the frame anywhere else though.

To the first half of your qns, nope! No difference. 1.6 is good enough. Don't need spend too much on a 1.67. And 1.67 also requires a certain amount of minimum degree to do which Is -3.00 and above. 2.25 just stick to 1.6.

To the second part... it really depends. Many shop have these style that you looking for..can't really pinpoint as it's too large already your frame you looking for.. haha

Hi not sure if this the right place to ask but

I just bought a Ray-ban eyeglasses for the first time (yay?), problem is that the type i bought is not listed in the Ray-ban sg website (mine is a RB7124D) but the shop that i bought is listed as part of the Certified Resellers on their website so was wondering if the Ray-ban Service centre would be able to maintenance or repair my Ray-ban eyeglasses?

Was there any official receipt given to you? To state that the rayban you bought was from that shop?
