I mean, why they can't sell 1× cheaper!

and why 2nd piece when degree fluctuates?

Does it have to be mirror coated? Normal tinted lenses cost around 70 onwards for normal Brand’s. If you want add mirror coat is more exp, then depending on frame size, if it's too big, need add on more diameter for the lens(extra cost), multicoat(extra cost). Depends on the quality you want for the coating of the lens.
What would be roughly the price range for prescription sunglass lens? My degree is around 600+ each eye. Guess I'll have to go for 1.67

Looking to make a set of mirror coated lens with my existing Oakley crossrange.

I am sure this is same as those cheap progressive with small viewing angle.

The price is too low to be good.

Anyone try this before? Any good?

Finally hoot one ownday today, include the premium progressive plus other option is $478 , ready in 2 weeks , let’s see....


By the way , they offer the second piece purchase on the same day for half price but I did not take up.
Wow two weeks is a very long time. Hopefully it will be worth the wait. And $478 is cheap. Does it include blue filter? Wow my previous pair cost me $500 and it was a disaster. I will go tomorrow to get a pair. Hope this is good!

Yes , the 478 inclusive of blue filter.

It will be even a better deal if you make the second pair as they will give you 50% off the second pair! So average is only $300+ per pair.

Well, most brands in the market has the blue filter for their lenses, but if you're still experiencing discomfort, perhaps it might be due to other factors such as generalised dry eyes or uncorrected 'degrees'.

Just to share my shopping experience at Owndays yesterday. Went to NEX to enquire about the progressive lens. Yes overall their widest lens is about $398-$498. Seem cheap if you are looking for a no frill progressive. However the shop was very crowded and it’s kind of mass market (like what you guys said) to me. Remembering what gangsterkia recommended to me before, I went to my neighbourhood optician, Chew, at Bishan North. They have all three brands which gangsterkia recommended. They have eesilor ($480), Hoya ($5xx) and zeiss($9xx). Warranty is 1 yr for essilor and 2 years for the other two. Optician recommended essilor. Since price difference is close to what I can get from Owndays I decided to get from here instead. I haven’t ordered yet. Just like to seek your opinion which lens is better? The price quoted is for the top lens (widest view).

Thank you.

GANGSTERKIA can ask you. I just did ZEISS Single Vision Superb with Blueprotect Coating 1.67 for astigmatism over 200 with Hamamoto frame for 1600 ringgit.

Is it consider cheap? It is possible to do ZEISS Single Vision Superb with Blueprotect right, since it is a coating. I didn't get smoke by the spectacle shop right? But in the end everything should be able to see from the authenticity something right? Lol.
