Ya bro its eyezen. Btw is there any big differences between

Crizal EyeZen

Crizal Prevencia Lens (Blue Light Protection)


Do u mind recommending me. Im a heavy computer/phone user. Thanks for ur answers
Eyezen is an antifatigue lens at comes with along with Prevencia.
If you are late 20s/early 30s, eyezen is not too bad TBH(but even early teens can also use eyezen)

Prevencia is the Anti-blue light filter/coating.

Thus how eyezen works is that the top 1/2 of the lenses is your original power for distance, the lower 1/2 has the degree reduced by about 0.40 to help in relaxing your eyes, relaxes your accommodation/eye muscles. Its really good. Theres something called eyezen FIT where you can adjust the lower portion degree 0.40/0.60/0.8. But depending on your age and of course your workload. All in all i say the price of the lens is really too cheap and too good of a deal.
Just make sure the frame quality is good otherwise you got a steal!

It is never enough eh? When i saw lotos years back i shocked by its price. And when they take the frame out still must wear gloves and all.

Where would be a good place that allows me to bring in my own frame and just get the lens done up?

Looking at anti blue-light ones

No need to be super cheap.. just reliable and decently / reasonably priced..

Any recommendations?

Tag Heuer Is better but their service center in Singapore has shifted to HK iirc. Thus any servicing is very difficult. Half frame maybe you can look at Oakley, Undostrial, Porsche. There are more of course!

Hi AlvinDJ,

Many shops sell anti blue-light ones, just have to make sure they demo to you the blue filter properties.

Check out the lens demo here:

Definitely Oakleys! Previous Tag Heuer's agent closed down. Any Tag Heuer frames out in the market is currently without any warranty. Same goes for stocks that we have on hand.

Pricewise Oakleys frames are easily 20-30% lower than Tag Heuer.

Hi Kusuoh,

Crizel EyeZen falls in the category of anti-fatigue lenses. Many brands carry this range of lenses. We'ld usually prescribe it to younger folks(25-38yo) who face alot of near work.

For heavy CPU/mobile phone users, We would recommend Asahi-Lite UV420/ Tokai Lutina. These lenses blocks up to 94% HEV (Harmful Blue) light
The only local authorised agent for these 2 lenses is Mvision Singapore.

Check out the lens demo here:


For Anti Fatigue + Blue Filter lenses, you can consider:
MPIO Asahi-Lite or MPIO Lutina from Mvision for maximum comfort.
