Very comfortable pair. I was about to go for this before I got poisoned by the horn
You mean you saw the exact same frame?! Can share where is it?

I saw some nice horns and especially love the wood/horn design. But I tend to seat on my spec and so I decided not to get it.

Air titanium yes but not the Raymond in particular. But I believe the range of air titanium are very well made and comfortable. Same as the place I got the horn, jamco

I believe normal single vision lens with blue light protection will do. If your eyes feel tired after doing pc work, you can consider Energize me from zeiss, eyezen from essilor or shamir relax from shamir! Normal 1.50/1.56 index will do fine for you.

Normal frame will do

Thanks

Somewhere along 300-400? The cost is from the lens.. Energize me and eyezen are antifatigue lenses thus cost of them are higher compared to single vision. If pure single vision will be 200? Or lesser!

we same age group. I still not keen to do lasik cos,

its gonna come back again when we reach 40s50s
I still find the whole procedure too risky. Just my personal opinion and I haven't research alot on it but to be honest, I treasure my eyes like my life.
And lastly, I look better with specs. LOL

Collected my Lindberg today. Wasn't expecting it to be ready cos supposed to be on Tuesday. Glad they called me before my party tomorrow.

Firstly, even the paper carrier for it looks good!


Then the box also feels damn solid



Opening the box


The black rectangular box is the case. I suspect its made of genuine leather even cos it smells damn nice and feels real good. That stick in the middle is the lens spray by Lindberg. Follow by the frames identity card with serial number.


And lastly, the specs




I know some of you will be thinking, "special meh, looks normal leh. Like ordinary specs"
"my $80 frame looks like that also"

This is probably the first time I tried a specs and fell in love. All my previous specs are like, ok lo no other choice already.
This feels very light, yet sturdy. And the quality can tell. Even from the way they present it in the box can tell the makers don't play around with this.
popdod, Porkchop, Kavairs and 1 others like this.

Great hoot.

I tried Lindberg when I was at Jamco recently.
The construction, build quality and weight is entire different level. Almost wanted to get 1 after trying.

Probably will get one pair in the future.


Opening the box
Mind telling me, what is the metal rod looking thing in the middle?

I have a very silly question to ask.

My astigmatism and shortsightedness is quite high so I can't really see how I look like when I try the frame on.

Thus will it be better if I do an eye test and buy some contact lenses first, before trying on the frames to see how I look?

Or will I get a better deal if I purchase both contacts and a new pair of specs together?

Quite new to adulting so yeah, any advice is highly appreciated.
Wondering how you gotten your previous specs?
Or
your eyes deteriorate so much recently

But no worries, most shop assistant are helpful. You probably will kiss the mirror while trying mani pairs of specs. You can also ask for shop assistant's opinion. Experienced ones can help you along since they are selling specs for decades. They know their stuffs abt face shape and specs shape one.
