I believe this is a common misconception about eyechecks.

Eyechecks are NOT done for free.

Most shop do it for ''free'' if you make a pair of glasses or Contact lens.
Our eyes are important just like our health. A good example is e.g. we see a doctor for a body/health check, we still have to pay a consultation fee or even for a quick check at the dentist.

We,Optometrist and Opticians also study, train and make sure we are qualified before coming out to the field to practice. Thus it's not some ''Chapalang''/unqualified individual that is checking your eyes.

Our eyes are really important thus we make sure that we put our utmost best in the refraction and analysis all the time.

I hope this clears up all about the notion too
I'm sorry I thought eye check is to get degree
yesterday zoff at orchard central had a sign that offered free

Yes, that is usually the case. The in-training Optometrist will first do the eye examination and test required before the supervisor will double check the results hence the duration. It might take faster if there is nothing suspicious e.g. eye issues.

Do take note that there is a small fee for the Test too, whether at SP or Ngee Ann Poly.

I mean, I'm referring to eye check done, like in eye zone etc, will it take 1 h etc?

Looking for Progressive lens

Currently using Crizal lens. I need to start using progressive lens as I cannot see near things clearly. Eg. on my phone. I need to take out my specs.

I am around 250-300 deg shortsighted, with some astig on both eyes, around 75-100?

Can anyone recommend a good progressive lens to start and that's not too ex?


I have a pair of Hugo frames hence I only need the lens, I didn't want to go Ownsday, the last pair that I made there, supposedly to block blue light. It turned yellowish after 6 mths.

I went to W optics and was quoted around 450 for a basic progressive lens from Essilor


And also if Anyone knows who still sells Tag Heur frames in SG? Thanks in Advance.

Hi Bro,

A pair of 1.50 index progressive lens with basic design starts from $180.
Depending on your needs, you can also choose to top up & have Add-ons like:
  • Higher index for even thinner lenses
  • Wider Angle lenses
  • Colour changing lenses (E.g. Transitions, Photochromic)
  • HEV Light (Blue) Filter (E.g. Asahi-Lite UV3G, Tokai Lutina)
