I was looking at Shamir's website for Office and Computer lens and in their brochure, I don't see Blue Zero as one of the materials. Are computer and blue filter lens separate in Shamir's case? Is it true for Tokai and Asahi-lite as well?
shamir do have blue zero lenses as an add on for computer lenses.
im not too sure for tokai

blue zero isnt a material. it is an extra add on feature

[QUOTE=Shinji Kagawa;118646186]May I know what the differences are? One is more lasting? sorry not too familiar, does the coating peel off after a while?


one appears less blueish than the other.
coating will peel off if you dont take care of your lenses well.

My bad. It’s a material not a coating.
Costing will be more but like a ‘filter’

Do you guys think the tinted lenses are cool or just a trend?

No problem, thanks for the clarification! Any one has experience between shamir vs tokai vs asahi lite and which optical shops carry them?

I heard that jamco doesn't carry the above lens brand

I personally feel it's cool. But probably european countries can accept it more. Look at those celebs e.g. robert downey , in Singapore, people sure say siao wear tinted in the mall...

Eyezone Optical does have tokai and asahi as what they have been posting (video) so far.

Shamir IMO is a decent lens brand with good lens clarity and quality(multi-coat)

Especially their new progressive lens ''Autograph Intelligence'' which is on par with many of the top lenses in the market now...

I'ld suggest going for Blue Filter lenses instead of Blue Coating.

Blue Filter demo:
How much would these lens cost?

Hi all,

Not sure if this is the correct thread to post to, but I shall try my luck.

I have recently gotten a spectacle from Optical 88 with Hoya lens. However, I've encountered issue with one of the lens. When I look at bright lights with the lens, there seem to be a purple dot on it. And if u were to wear it, it will appear right in front of your eye. I have since went back to the optical shop and they sent bsck to Hoya, which they checked and claimed there is nothing wrong with it.

It's hoya stellify 1.55 with blue control lens.

Whenever I look at bright lights, there will be this purple dot right in front of my eye. Is this really normal?

Wanted to post pictures but I realized I do not have enough post count to do so 😆

It is not normal, but it would be best if we can have a look at the pictures. If not, it's too vague to actually tell..

Thanks Joesph for helping!

I was given the letter and told that there I can write to Hoya or bring it to CASE. At one point the staff even told me something like "I told them the customer won't try to prank. If prank, she'd have asked to change both lens". Found it quite amusing to hear that because he was sort of telling me that Hoya thinks I'm a joke.

I don't know. But it's really uncomfortable to have a purple dot right in your eyes when looking at bright lights. I honestly find this not normal. I've been wearing spectacle for many yrs, changed a number of spectacle before and this is my first time encountering such issues.
