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.

Hi bro,

If im not wrong, HOYA Blue Control lens has a Front surface blue coating.

The purple mark should be a reflection from the front coating, which some people find it disturbing.

I suggest you go for Blue filter lens which has the blue filter properties infused into the material + normal green multi-coating.

Blue Filter demo:

Are the photos all taken on the same lenses itself? Or has the lenses been remade in some of them?

All same lens. Actually the dot can be all over the lens. As in if you move, the dot moves around the lens also..

It's the front lens reflection, so that's why "As in if you move, the dot moves around the lens also"

Hi all, came across this thread when I was looking for spec shop recommendation.

I'm looking at owndays for now, anybody had experience with owndays?

btw, does anybody happened to know what causes this kind of 'dot scratch'?

Before wash


After wash


Washing the specs remove a significant amount of the 'dot scratches' but after awhile maybe a day or 2, most will appear back. I tried changing the lens at my usual shop and this issue still occurs, suspect I was sold fake lenses.

Hope somebody can confirm

Hi there, I don't think those are scratches.. most likely you use some kind of spray type hair product and the mist landed on the lens. Happens to me all the time too when I use heat protection spray before blow-drying my hair. Washes off with some water and soap even if it is caused by strong hold hair spray, no biggie

It should be Crizal Prevencia

Yes, I do use hair spray! It does make sense since it can be washed off. Thanks for the help!

Any recommendation for specs shop around Jurong area?
