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.
Compared to other brands, Zeiss is one that usually gives the prescription/lens detail card to their retailers for their customer keeping. You can try asking your shop to request for it, afaik, especially its a digital lens, you should have it. You can also check yourself at the moment to see if its the real thing by looking at the lens engraving at the side of your lens, the extreme left/right of both lenses. There will be 2 zeiss logos, coupled with the degree of your Addition power(for relaxation/reading) and also the lens marking.

Hi GANGSTERKIA

I see 3 Zeiss logos in total. 1 at the upper left/right corner (depending on whether is left eye or right eye) and 2 along the middle of the lens, at the edges. I see 075 and D74 beneath the Zeiss logo. So I can conclude the lenses are the real deal, right?

One more thing i noticed. The lenses attract dust easily. Have to wipe clean frequently. Is this due to the coatings?

Thanks for your advises.

You degree must be high right? 1.74 digital lens with 75degree addition power I presume. The lenses should be quite anti static though.. either wiping or could be the environment..

Agree with GANGSTERKIA.

Singapore Polytechnic and Ngee Ann Polytechnic both have an Optometry Centre where the final year Diploma of Optometry students get to practice what they have learnt. I believe the prices over there are super affordable and the students are all supervised by the lecturers/managers of the centre. Perhaps you can have a go and try out.

I think we can call and check it up this time. But i believe both should accept cash, As a student from NP i know for sure NP accepts cash.

Hi InfinityInventor,
I'ld recommend you to go for Tokai Lutina / Asahi Lite UV3G lenses.
They block up to 94% HEV(Blue) light, has 99% light transmibility(no visible yellow tint) & hydrophobic non-reflective multicoating.

Check out the lens demo here:
