I have also tried getting a prescribed progressive from one of the specs shop 2-3 years back and it was bad as well. Basically a worse experience than the one I bought from Owndays and it was done by a pretty old Uncle.....
Progressive lenses comfort is dependent on Optician/Optometrist's skill & the product used.

Brings me back to the point of the practioner experience and also probably them not enquiring more about your lifestyle and habits before prescribing.
Hope your next pair will regain your confidence in progressive lenses regardless of who is fitting them

1.6 Zeiss SV Superb + Duravision Platinum

I just bought 1.6 Zeiss SV Superb + Duravision Platinum.
There is Z logos and VS60 engraving on the lens with certificate indicating the prescriptions.

One question, when i put my lens on a white paper, it appeared yellowish.

I did not order with Blueprotect. Is this normal?

bring it back to the shop to enquire.

sometimes the lighting of your surroundings matter as to how you perceive the color. It is normal for lenses to yellow after some time.
i haven't handled a zeiss lens for sometime, probably wait for other input

On the Certificate, what did they put? 1.6 Zeiss SV superb+duravision platinum only? Or did it also also include blue protect?

Alright, thanks for the images!

Not to worry, there is no blue protect coating on the lenses. As, all duravision platinium lenses has ''what they call'' a blue reflex coat and thus that will cause the lens to give this ''slight yellowish hue''. If you compare it with a blueprotect lens then i believe the comparison will be more obvious.

Ok, thank you for the insight information. I expect it to be clear lens instead of yellowish hue lens since without Blueprotect. The shop asked me to bring it back for investigation. Guess now i don't have to bring it back already.

I see.. clear one would be their previous coating which is called the lotutec coating, which would have a green reflex coating and hence a clearer/less yellowish hue.

Hello! I’m looking for lenses which have anti-fatigue and blue light filter. Came across crizal eyezen and kodak and was wondering if anyone had experiences wearing the anti-fatigue lenses? Both are similarly priced, but the Kodak lenses seem to be more aesthetically pleasing (reflect less blue light, using a different technology), whereas the eyezen offers more UV protection.

Anyone has any recommendations?

Hi,

Both offers Same level of UV protection, only difference is that Kodak Lenses is probably using a blue light absorbing technology as compared to eyezen which is light reflecting.
Kodak=less reflection
Eyezen=More reflection

One will look more aesthetically pleasing as what you mentioned whereas the other will offer less glare when looking at electronic devices.

Depending on which you prefer, both are fine.

Add on that Kodak lens absorbs up to 90% HEV (Blue) light whereas Eyezen reflects up to 30% HEV (Blue) light.

In terms of material, Kodak wins hands down.

A good read for you guys regarding blue light. How much protection is too much and how much protection is actually needed?

Hope this helps!
