Yes! If digital then you can consider Energize me also can.

Digital lens can protect against too much handphone staring right? Haha

Thanks! Will consider that too.

Just curious. How long ur guys specs last you. My current one is like 1yr plus. Lens no scratches. Just that the frame getting out of shape after tortured by my kids
And my visual seem to have problems with near and far viewing recently

Wondering if this justify a new purchase. Lol

May I ask how old are you now? You might be having early presbyopia.

Usually with kids I recommend using plastic frames, can adjust easily by heating up the frame. Using metal frame, if the frame bend, there will be metal fatigue and will break easier during adjustment.. mine last me for years but I change cause I want smth different😅

I believe presbyopia is creeping in which explains your issue with near currently! Thus digital lens then would be the perfect fit for you!

Typically, my frames last me almost forever. Past 7 years, have been using rayban. I have 4 pairs of them. Onli 1 matt pair have its plastic coating slightly dropped.

Plastic frames are very durable. They hardly spoil imo.

Take note what you use to wipe ur lens. Last time, I wipe my glasses using long 4 in outfield. Whole lens full of micro-scratches. Lesson learned.

Mind explaining more abt presbyopia? What are the symptoms and how to spot it?
Izzit a slight dizziness when looking at near & harder to focus?

Carl zeiss is still the best in terms of clarity. But I dont see other brands compromised much in terms of quality as well. Other brands are good too.

Signs of presbyopia are when reading at near, yes it will be harder to focus, you might see some double vision,eye strain when looking at computer screen. Reading might become better when you pull your reading material further away.

Just pulled the trigger for my most expensive spectacles ever

Lindberg buffalo horn titanium

But the design and comfort is EXACTLY what I had been looking for all these years.
