Hi

Does anyone have any experience in using a frame with straight temples instead of the usual curve down? Is it secure enough?

I see this style like getting very popular.

Isn't that what Oakley frames had been doing all along?

In my opinion. Its just as secure but if sweaty may lose some grip

Very common what.. even those frames with not straight temple u need to bend such that it curves yr skull... to me not much different but straight one is more comfortable..

Been awhile since I last shopped for new frames.
I've tried straight temples design frames and yes it is comfortable but was paranoid about the specs sliding out due to no hook curve down the back of the ear.

Hi bro, usually these straight temple frame have some/little rubber at the back to grip to your head. E.g. Oakley. The rubber tends to grip harder when you sweat thus it really depends on the comfort of the user. Don't worry about it, it can also be curved slightly to fit the curvature at the your temple area.

Thanks!

Even those specs got hooks also will slide down if not adjust properly.. Thus is no different to me. Need to bend the temples of any frames to curve ard yr skull.. That will solve the problem of sliding..

The salesperson at optical shop demonstrate the effectiveness of their anti blue ray lenses by shining a blue light touch against it

I cannot see the blue light after wearing their lenses.
Somehow I find this is a gimmick because we shouldn’t see blue ray with our naked eyes

Blue light is not visible to your eye. Most blue light comes from UV as oppose to electronic devices.
The ones you were shown are the lenses which absorb light rather than the others which is reflecting the blue light.
Not a gimmick as it really feels more comfortable as glare is really reduced BUT it does not serve other purpose e.g protect retina blah blah(not proven yet).

my progressive lens when seeing computer is not very clear. even after they sent back to adjust it. got giddy/headache end of the day and my neck also tired.

the other issue I noticed is extreme left is clear but extreme right is blur. I created excel in 19 columns. Column 1st to 12th is better than 13th to 19th.

Why?

Why?
Do you still rmb what kind of lenses you bought?
Roughly know what degree you were give? Usually if thats the case, there could be a few reasons.
1st- Power not enough thus you might have to tilt head up to see clearly
2nd-Your PD(pupil distance) might be off thus you seeing through the wrong area. (IMPT for progressive)
3rd-Long or short corridor Might affect the way you see.
4th-Your fitting height(eye point height) might be off.
5th-Power is wrong(not same as reason 1). Thus the progression down is not comfortable.
These are the few reasons i can think of at the moment.

Regarding your second issue. Progressive is not fully clear for the whole lenses. Only the center part is clear, there will be peripheral distortions thus the sides wont be clear at all. BUT if u say right is clearer than left, EITHER PD is off(highly likely) or else the progressive lenses INSET value might be off... gotta ask them verify..
Hope this helps!

It's Hoya lens. They checked my power again by another person and said power is correct. Not sure about pupil distance, did ask me to see right see left to do some marking on the len. They did some adjustment on the height issue and did a new len in order for the mid range to be clear. But still result not very good plus the left side is clearer and right side.

Progressive len side is blur, I can understand if only say excel column 1 to 3 and 17 to 19 is blur and center 4 to 16 is clear. But now no.

Will ask them.
