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
every bath I spray both sides, and use washed t shirt to wipe it down, dry

Among the three, Pentax is the cheapest.

Anyway, just want to share.. In the end optical 88 changed my Hoya stellify 1.55 blue control lens to their house brand. Deluxe BRC 1.56BRC. Which honestly looks cheap to me. The staff claimed that this is more exp than the Hoya lens I got. But whatever. Felt cheated still. Thanks all for helping.

in terms of reputable lenses brands, there are only limited choices.
dun see a reason to skip them for house brands. unless there is significant price advantage.

but lenses are the most important part of a spectacles, using a bad lense, it may not be good to eyes.

Price still the same. Bought at 300+ with frame. The staff claimed that their house brand is more exp than the Hoya lens. And that they will "replace" for me for "free". Seriously their service suck. And also, I doubt that their house brand is more exp than Hoya one. But nvm, just wanna put this bad incident behind me.

just collected my new spec. Oakley frame with Hoya Remark Trueform 1.6 HVLL BC.

First time wearing non 100% single vision lense.

view things from near distance indeed can tell the difference. Clearer and seems to be more ease to the eyes.

Hi,

You should receive the lens cards stating the prescription and details of your lenses.

However certain places might only give you the card Upon request. Do take note!

Cheers!

I see. thanks for the info. I did receive the lenses quality card as my lenses are customised made and not stock lenses.

besides, I noticed that Hoya lenses are easier to attract stains or smurges on the lenses as compared to my previous crizal lenses.

my crizal lenses just use a bit of hand wash liquid plus water to wash, the lenses will be super clean.

however, my Hoya new lenses even I washed with many times similarly I still get those dotted mark over the lenses (something like the dotted scratches pointed out earlier by another bro here).

I went back to the shop just now to let them check, lucky they can be removed. The sales lady told me they are just marks. but funny thing is that it cannot be removed by me but they managed to remove with their machine wash.

kind of disappointed with the tougher ways of maintenance for the lenses for Hoya.

Think next time I must try zeiss lenses instead. Chosen Hoya this round becos I regretted that I never chose it last time when I bought my crizal. Now chose it becos it is known for the longer lasting of the coatings. but end up seems like very tough to maintain its cleanliness.
