Was at KSL and ask the prices of their Zeiss. After discount, their PC +digital lenses is rm861.

Is it cheap?

anything across the border definitely cheaper.
but let me ask you, for such lenses which are not so straightforward, if you have problems with it like user sibeheng in the replies below, are you okay to head back and forth to solve the problem?

just my opinion

Thumbs up to gangsterkia. Me and my wife got our glasses two weeks ago from him.

He's young (relative to me) but quite open to questions and education. Careful with the checks. Willing to go the extra step. Good service.

Is it very common for shops to quote frame + lens?

Any recommendations on shops in the west or cbd that will quote seperately? Reson being that my company covers lens only so need seperate to claim.

Thats interesting. Most shops usually quote frame & lenses separately

Looking for blue light filter, single vision, multicoat, transition for the lens. Frame wise, preferably branded.

True to a certain extent!
Depending on the frame you choose and the size(length).
Full frames with thicker rims will hide the thickness of your frame unless you choose a metal ones(usually thin).
The bigger the frame, especially if you are myopic, the thicker the lens will be. Thus if possible choose a frame that is smaller and fit you of course.(if weight and thickness is the concern).

Hi all,

Is there such a lens as a 1.74 photochromic lens aka transition type lens in Singapore? Interestingly, I did buy a pair of specs with such a lens about 3 years ago, online, but the online shop has since closed. I did not, I stress, I did not spend a fortune.

How much does it cost locally? Did anyone try also in JB? I am thinking of buying a new pair.

Thanks.

Hey,

I'm not sure how much you actually paid for the lenses but based of local brands that are usually requested, it cost from about 630-820 in general.
I'm not too sure about owndays,Zoff prices..

Hope this helps.

For varilux maybe consider starting off with physio 3.0 or if you want a wider reading and better intermediate field area, go with the x-series lenses.
For zeiss, I would recommend starting off with their Asiana design/precision plus. Followed by their superb series or individual 2.
