What's the exchange rate for ringgit over there? I don't want use the Google exchange rate cause not accurate.😅

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.

Essilor is picking up already. Especially their newest X-design lens. Their TOP tier lens, really improved compared to their previous designs too.

What happen to the essilor u made recently? I just paid the deposit for the essilor lens

1600/3 already 533? The lenses itself in already 600 with blueprotect RRP(before discount). I think it's quite a steal. Grats man!

Yes! Not really pc glasses but if Long hours of usage causes eye strain even with pc glasses, I am suspecting early presbyopia setting in😬

Sure , it will be an interesting comparison, by the way , they told me waiting time is 14 days only count weekday. So effectively is a 3 weeks waiting. Will get it only in second week of May.

If you are fine with the yellowish hue, you can go with prevencia(essilor), Bluecontrol(hoya), BlueProtect(zeiss)

Otherwise, Shamir Blue Zero has the same function but w/o the yellowish hue.

IMO, Zeiss>hoya>essilor for single vision.

But for progressives, essilor has a new brand of lenses called the X-Design. Those are really affordable and has a Very wide reading area. About $7++ starting price but think of it as a 2-3years investment. Very worth it for such a pair. Whereas the other 2 are pretty much the same.

feel free to ask other questions should you require further help.
