Yep, the optometrist or optician will take care of the rest. Just have to let them know your lifestyle needs which they will ask.
Thanks!

There’s the eye test and measurements, but did not get asked about any lifestyle needs or so though.

oops sorry. i gave you the wrong information.
for single vision lenses, the individual accounts for the frame specifications such as the pentascopic tilt. the superb does not.

both are good lenses with the individual range having more customisation - in a sense the lenses are tailored to that specific frame. its like a made to measure shirt compared to off the shelves shirt. - both being the same material.
hope this clarifies.
and enjoy your lenses when you do receive it

4K Anti-Blue PC lens

Hi, Iím looking for 4K anti-blue PC specs in SG. I couldnít find any in online or opticals around my place. I could see a brand Apollo 4K in some videos but couldnít find any store selling those lenses.
Can anyone suggest a optics who has this option or is the 4K is just a myth.???

Usually about 2 years wax once, But based on personal preference, some would do it once a year or even 6months once!!

But why so is because, they would prefer to have the initial shine as when they first have the frame. For myself, i would like to achieve the grainy texture first then i would waxed it so it would have the double effect. (best of both worlds )

Do take note before going overseas to countries which colder, remember to make sure the frame has been waxed recently or else the cold temperature will cause the horn to crack.

I went online to look and i personally(i might be wrong) feel that it is just a gimmick(myth) but if you want to try it then go ahead(do let us know the results after).

Anti-blue doesnt cut off 100% of blue light, usually the ones in market cuts off 10-30%. Unless those REALLY yellow lenses about 50%. The more it cuts off, the yellow-er the lenses will be.

Do correct me if i am wrong
