Oh how come 1.6? You choose a larger frame?

Hey, i was convinced to get digital lens at the end. Got 1.6 index instead, thinking back should have just stick to 1.5. So many wrong decisions.

Yes that is my concern with online if they will be original..

It is not broken or requires replacement but thinking of changing to a different color

Hi Bus555,

What size are you looking for? I can ask RayBan agent for you, best if you can give me the colour code as well

Just a quick question.

How to prolong the coatings on the lenses and clean the specs in general?

As I sweat a lot, I tend to wash the specs by running them under warm water when I am bathing once I have come home. And I will dry them using a lint-free cloth. I do this once a day. Is this not recommended? How to clean the specs properly to prevent the hinges and nose pads from oxidation (those green stuff that builds up over time)?

Thanks in advance.

Whatever you are doing right now are all fine. Oxidation is inevitable as when you are washing the frame, the water will seep into the nosepad area with small gaps. Unless you unscrew the nosepad and all and dry them. I recommend whenever you want to service your frame, just go back to your optometrist/optician and let them do the servicing for you! They should be more than happy to see a familiar face coming back to them.

Hello, was browsing at a spectacle shop... was quoted around 1.6K for a branded (e.g. essilor) progressive lenses - not including frame...vs a local brand lenses only around $500. Such a huge price gap - is it worthwhile to go for branded lenses i.e. is it really superior (e.g. wider angle of vision, smoother transition from short to long distance). Anyone has experience to share on this ? Thanks!

I believe you're referring to the X series. I wouldn't say its not good, but for that kind of quality (Wide Angle + smooth progression), its not value for money at all.

An equivalent quality would cost less than half that price.

Hi! Adding on to what Eyezoneopticalsg explained, May i also know also what is your degree(estimate) is at the moment? Sometimes apart from the quality of lens, your degree will actually affect the thickness of your glasses and thus usually you be quoted with something that cost more e.g. high index lenses. Regarding the Essilor progressive lenses, the reason why a 1.6k lens is quoted for you probably is due to the you either being quoted the highest tier lenses for the X-Series lenses which is the X-Clusive or perhaps your degree require you to use the higher index lens paired with the other tiers of the X-Series

Were you quoted for Transition and Prevencia too?(blue light filter), one more thing to add on is that for the X-series, should your power be within range, you might consider even using their basic tier which is the X-design which starts at about 700, the X-design is comfortable enough gathering from feedback. But of course you can still go for the slightly cheaper lenses but ultimately, it depends on the level of comfort you ask for and your degree.

X-series comes with 3 tiers 1st-Xclusive(only certain shops have that), Xtrack-2nd and of course the X-Design(3rd).

Hope this helps!
