Hi,

May someone enlighten me that says "wide view progressive lens" (eg from Hoya) is independent from the shape of the frame? I have a spare frame in round shape which I got from online. I intend to make a new pair of progressive lens. I am worried that the shape of the frame makes a difference in viewing. I am wearing a rectangular shape progressive lens. Thanks.
Hey,

Regarding the wide view lenses that you are concerned about, firstly, i feel the size of the frame is the true concern followed by the shape of the frame which would affect your viewing area. As what user EyeZone mention, progressive lens design are rather fixed, That means before the lens is CUT/EDGE onto your frame, the viewing area is more or less fixed. Thus The amount of Distortion is already predetermined from the lens you are going to purchase, so if you choose a frame that is wide/long, you will experience more distortion as compared to one that is shorter/narrower. Also Depending on your addition power/Lao hua power, The higher your power, the more distortion you will experience. Thus its advisable to choose a frame that is comfortable for you e.g. not too wide unless your face shape forbids it.

Hi Bro, most big brands offer lenses with blue block features. These lenses are good to block HEV light up to 30%.

I'ld suggest you to ask around for Asahi 1.74 Photochromic SV lenses instead.

It filters up to 94% HEV and turns dark when in contact with sun's UV light

a) Photochromic ✔️
- Quick fade back
- Clear during indoors
b) High index 1.67 plastic ✔️(1.74 index)
c) Single vision ✔️
d) blue light filter / PC lens ✔️(94% filter)
e) anti-reflective/ glare✔️
f) impact resistant

Go to Spectacle Culture. Love their services. My first spec with them was DUN. I stopped going coz now got a lot of commitments so donít want to spend $500 or more for a frame.
Very friendly husband and Wife. They even send you yearly check up sms reminder.

Good afternoon, tbh... all glasses depend on your own handling. It might be very tough(frame) but if we roll over/lie on it also will break. But if you wanna give Lindberg a go and a durable series, I recommend you take a look at their RIM series. It can be manipulated and take quite abit of stress. Might have some YouTube video on it too. My DP is my own Lindberg RIM too, the colours can be customised. Haven seen one break yet as compared to their other series..

I think the point which is most fragile for frameless is the hinges. Lindberg in general doesn’t have screw so that reduces the possibility of the temple breaking/rust. Next the mounting e.g. fitting the temple into lenses is mount by special glue that reacts to UV instead of filling it with a washer/pin that breaks easier. But of course with such quality, it comes with a price.. that’s why you pay that amount for a pair of Lindberg.

But in general most frameless glasses are light, differences probably felt through the nose bridge sitting, the size of the Temples and the material!

if you dont wish to pay such a high price you can just go for frames at a lower tier price range. some might be as durable as lindberg but don't have the name/brand hence you pay a lower price. = more comfortabe for your wallet , not so heart pain if it does break
