I am looking for a specs to reduce my eye strain. I do quite a lot of reading on physical/digital books mainly looking for anti fatigue and driving at night Went to check out ZEISS, as for me the seeing balloon machine test result is 0.25 power for both side and 0.50 flash.

I've read some article saying blue light coating not so helpful as it claims.
Which is so confusing.


http://nymag.com/strategist/article/...sses-work.html

Spoiler!


Does ZEISS with premium price tag really useful?
and as for me need is that really what I should go after?
also, as for blue light effect the lens must be yellowish in order to achieve that?
I find warm colour throughout the day is quite disturbing
Hi Bro!

I think what you require most is an anti-fatigue lens with HEV light filter.
A pair of Mpio Asahi-Lite UV420 lens ($268) has both these properties.
Unlike most companies, these Japanese lenses have the HEV filter made within the material instead of on the coating. Resulting in a better non-reflective surface + almost not noticeable tint.

Check out the HEV Light filter demo:

besides trivex and polycarbonate, what type of lenses suitable for semi-rimless frames?
Hi Bro
Trivex and polycarbonate are usually recommended due to their high tensile strength. Main difference is Trivex has much better light transmisibility and optics compared to polycarb

The next closest to trivex would be 1.60 index MR8 lenses. Unless really necessary, we wouldn't recommend 1.67/1.70/1.74/1.76

HEV filter lenses do not appear as yellowish as brands that have blue-block coatings.

If you prefer lenses that are almost clear, probably go for Tokai Lutina.

Probably good for you to drop by any optical stores that sell Asahi-Lite/Tokai Lutina lenses and take a look at the samples 1st before deciding

Anyone can recommend shops that carry Oliver People frames? Saw a pair of frame I like at Queenstown. Wanna compare price before deciding since the frame is not cheap...

You should be able to find the best price and models at jamco. But note that OP price is controlled by luxxotica. The prices will be very closed with/wo discount. If prices are too Low , retailers will get into trouble with luxx.

Icberlin suits angmohs more than us asian faces. Look at the nosepad structure u knoe already. Only japanese domestic brands made in japan are more suitable for asian faces.
Beg to differ, have been wearing icberlin urban for many years still fits comfortably. Since u sing good tune about Japanese spec so please Recommend me the brand/frame, I will go check it out.

Usually it will be put across to you that it is possible to adjust for you but should it break while adjusting, they are not liable as the frame is not done at their shop. But of course some wouldn’t even try.

If you are fine with it then go ahead and give them a chance. Or else Jamco is your best/safest option. OP not exactly cheap too..

The same place where you got your OP(best choice) or the Luxxotica customer service team where you would have to email your proof of purchase to them before they arranging a day for you to go to their headquarters to collect and fix the nosepad for you.
That or you can head down to their service center. But i think they service mostly oakleys. Not sure about OP.

If you bought the OP online then likely you would have to go to an optical shop that sells OP and buy the nosepad from them(prolly have to order and take 1-2weeks)
