Hahaha, surely not see through clothes or can Poh mata alr!!
But they spend to Ensure the clarity of their vision is there and the cost is usually progressive lenses that is expensive which cause the grand damage to be high.. there are different kind of progressive lenses so.. until you reach that age(or if you already are) then you will experience it yourself when you wear it to see why some lenses are more expensive than the other.
When you say branded do you mean zeiss, Hoya essilor this kind? Spore also do give just that in earlier post I mentioned is that certain places you just have to request for it.
But then again, doesn't mean you have the card means it's real. Do you believe what you see on the card and know how to see from your lenses if it tallies?
There are pros and cons but ultimately still consumer choice!
Expensive frame is usually your choice and not the salesperson forcing it down our throats, thus you are right to say that can save on frame, but certain frames also quality is part of the reason why you pay more for them. You might have good experience with cheaper frames but I'm sure there are others who have bad. So advising others to save of frame not necessarily is the best choice. If we are more careless, cheap quality frames wont last much.
So take note!
Hope this helps!

Qoo10.sg

Looking for a sunglass ? Any recommendation as popular is RayBan. But already have it years back. Thought of changing to other brand.

Do you know what brand of the lenses is it? And when you top up what's the total damage??
What index of lens are you getting too?1.5,1.53? 1.6?1.67?1.74?

Owndays.............
index is subjective to your degree. Brand is depending on what kind of work priorities you have before it's decided for you.
Is this your first pair of progressive?

Have you considered trying other brand of lenses?? I think you go Google on edmw/this subforum on comments of certain brand progressive lenses then you decide.
Progressive yes will be good for you if you get the right pair.

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..
wat is anti fatigue lens?
