Hey,

If you dont want it too yellowish tinted, you can consider using Shamir Blue zero. It absorbs blue light rather than reflect thus it does not have that bluish reflection from your glasses and doesnt look too yellowish when you look through it.

Clementi to tanjong, consider going KJ optometrist at plaza sing? They have a good team of optometrists there! Prices are really reasonable too!

Recommendation for progressive lens and optical shop

Hi, can anyone assist to recommend which progressive lens model to go for
1. Zeiss Precision Superb or Pure
2. Hoya dynamic premium ( on going free upgrade from summit )
I had a pair of Hoya lenses from 3 yrs ago, but I could not get used to it. Canít remember the model.

After reading through this thread, I suspect optician did not do a good job of taking measurements as it was my first pair of progressive lens.

I mainly do desk work, reading from paper and input on pc. So now really need a good pair of progressive lens.

For frames Iím used to Silhouette or byWP- very light frames.

Appreciate if anyone can recommend an experienced optometrist and shop.

Thank you

Hi cflow8,

If you're talking about progressive lenses, I'ld recommend Zeiss lenses. Its abit more pricey but definitely worth it as the design is more comfortable.

However, most pair of progressive lens are only good for Distance & near, with a so-so intermediate(computer) as you would have noticed.

Your work seems to deal with alot of near and intermediate work. For that reason, I believe a pair of office lenses would work better for you, and if you need to walk around in your office, go for a 2m office lens.

I'ld recommend:
  1. Zeiss Office Lens Plus
  2. Asahi-Lite UV3G Maxisov
  3. IOT Vina 2 Office lens

I dont really know much about tokai lutina, but if it's using the same technology as shamir blue zero which is basically also blocking off blue light BUT not appearing yellowish at the same time.(Because they embed the technology of blue light filter rather than coating on the layer) then i think its not possible. As transition also its am embedded layer thus i think it's not possible.

Probably Eyezoneopticalsg can provide more info, sorry!

Hi rainbo99,

Tokai Lutina does not have transition add on but another Japanese lens by Asahi-Lite does.

You can ask for 1.74 Asahi UV3G (UV420) Photochromic.
Pros:
  • Blocks 94% HEV light
  • Turns dark & reduce glare under Sunlight

Cons:
Its very expensive as its available only in 1.74 index. If possible, good to wait a couple more months. Hopefully these japanese decides to start making 1.60 & 1.67 index.

FREE branded frame promo
How it works: Spend $200 or above on a pair of frame + lenses to get a FREE branded frame.

I am back with an update.

I have collected my specs, Zeiss Digital Lens.

First time wearing digital lens. Is the top half (for long sightedness) supposed to be warmer colour tone than the lower half (for near sightedness)? I thought the blue light filter supposed to be both halves having same colour tone?

In addition, am I supposed to receive any official certificate/card of authenticity with a serial number of the lens or something like that? I only received the items pictured below. The lenses do have a small Zeiss logo embossed at the right-hand corner. Just want to make sure I am not missing stuff from what I am supposed to receive. If things are missing, I will go back to the shop and request for it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi! Nice to see that you got yourself the digital lenses already!
Firstly, the blueprotect coating should be on your whole lens e.g. top to bottom. Not just half of the lenses.
Next, Yes the top portion is for you to see far, whereas the lower segment depending on how much addition power you are prescribed by the optometrist/optician.
Regarding the Lens Degree card, i believe there are some practices that will keep the prescription card for the customer and upon request, they will/should be able to pass you your card.

Hope this helps!

Thanks GANGSTERKIA for the reply

I have gone back to the shop and asked if there are any other cards that I am supposed to have and the reply was they did not receive any other card that came with my specs. The ways to show my lenses are Zeiss lens are the embossed Zeiss logo on the top right corner of the lenses and the shop is a Zeiss partner, according to Zeiss Singapore (map link). Shall not mention which shop I patronised.

https://www.zeiss.com.sg/vision-care...address=440055

As this is my first pair of Zeiss lenses, I am not certain what am I supposed to receive. My previous Crizal UV lenses came with an authenticity card with a serial number and my prescribed power details printed on the card, as well as my name and the frame the lenses are fitted on are printed too. Not sure if Zeiss lenses also come with such card or not.
