It’s like a dummy spectacles where they let you wear it with your power simulated in it. You probably should have worn it before during The Eye test right??

Sorry, what is trial frame?

Yeah, If hoya you can consider Dynamic Nulux Active Or Pentax Energy. Both Works as AntiFatigue!

For Essilor you can consider Eyezen.
Is there a great difference between Zeiss, Hoya and Essilor?

If you ask me, I would say not really. But in terms of clarity, zeiss takes it best but i always emphasise on individual tolerance. If you personal clarity tolerance is high e.g not sensitive to clarity, basically most lenses brand will work on you. But if you want to have better clarity then zeiss is the one to go for. In terms of the 3 of them for single vision lens clarity, my personal opinion is 1)zeiss 2)hoya 3)essilor.
Myself I tried all 3 Brand’s before and I don’t see any difference because my tolerance is very high thus all 3 lenses doesn’t have any significant difference in clarity for me.
There are other lenses in the market e.g. like what fellow user eyezoneopticalsg mentioned, tokai, Asahi , Kodak, AO, Nikon, Pentax, stellify..
So depends on which optical shop you go to, they will probably r commend you accordingly!

just saw a Hoya GSS sales banner outside an optics shop,
discounts from $70-130 for different types of lenses

how does it work?
eg I am looking for single vision lens with blue control for mild myopia and astiq

It’s probably Pentax/stellify lenses which is under hoya. If you want blue control(hoya blue filter) then probably have to TOP up 10-20 dollars around there.
But did you ask if must buy a certain tier of lenses before you are entitled to the discount or straight up the lenses?
The difference between Pentax, stellify and hoya is their multicoat. Pentax is using their INC coating, followed by stellify HVP and hoya HVLL(best). Either way as Long as you can take care of your lenses well, either one will be fine for a single vision lens.

For Anti-fatigue lenses, the design is pretty similar across all brands. Can probably just go with the material/coating you prefer

I am making replacement lens for my wayfarers.

Got quotes SGD 280 for a Carl Zeiss photochromatic lens at a mall. Any other place where I can do it for a better price? Suggestions on alternative photochromatic lenses would be much appreciated as well.

Along the Area, i would recommend going to The Eye Care people. Think they are pretty professional. Price-wise Not too sure. Or if you head further down to bukit timah plaza maybe you can consider Mee mee optics. Both are really reliable though if you ask me, i would lean towards the Latter as i know some of their staff thus believe they are really reliable.

Maybe you can ask for Essilor,Pentax, Stellify, AO , Kwang Meng, OSS , Asahi, Tokai. These brands lenses transition lenses should be cheaper than Zeiss.
But in terms of Quality/clarity, i Obviously will lean towards zeiss. But i guess different places will also quote you different prices.

Aviator Glasses Tbh i not too sure, Maybe u can consider Bolon? Sorry!

Lindberg Acetanium price range is around 750-800+. But of course that is before discount. Thus different places usually will offer different discount base on probably the package you get e.g. lenses and all.
