Thanks Bro, will check out this few days. For anti reflection and blue light filter, which brand is more recommended?
Hi Bro,

It depends on what you're looking for.

Blue-Reflect lenses reflects up to 30% of blue light across the blue spectrum (380-550nm). Examples of these lenses in the market includes: Crizal Prevencia, Zeiss Blueprotect, Hoya Bluecontrol.


Blue-Absorb lenses absorbs up to 94% HEV light (400-420nm). Researchers have found that not all Blue light will cause damage to the eyes but specifically just HEV (High Energy Visible) light. HEV accelerates the development of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) & Cataract. Examples of these HEV filter lenses in the market includes: Asahi Lite UV3G, Tokai Lutina, Shamir BlueZero

HEV filter lenses demo:

Thanks for a really helpful thread. Senior citizen here, I'd like to make a new pair of glasses but do not wish to spend more than $600 for lenses + frame.

@GANGSTERKIA can you please PM me the address of the optical shop you work at and your name. Many thanks.

@GANGSTERKIA thank you so much for your speedy PM. I can't PM you so am posting here instead.

Will most likely go to the shop where you work. But if, not can you please recommend other optical shops which have good optometrists/opticians? Thanks so much.

hi,
i need a pair of progressive glasses. my normal vision is 6/6 but I need progressive to read. currently I am using those cheap 'old flower' glasses 1.5.

How much will it cost for progressive lens for the above and if with transition lens how much more must I top up?

I have a pair of sunglasses from loewe and am thinking of reusing this frame for transition and progressive lens.

please advise.

thank you.

That’s fine, may I ask which location of Singapore are you at? Then the other users here might be able to provide you more places to choose at your convenience!

Does the loewe comes with those nose pads add on? Or those European fit fixed on nose pad?

Generally sunglasses frames are abit large, thus not recommended for progressives on a day to day basis as there will be a considerable amount of distortion at the sides. The larger the frame/lens, the more distortion there will be unless no choice when our face are broader then we have to use larger frame size.

Oh i see, then you can consider using the frame. One more concern is the condition of the frame. If it's an old model frame, servicing might be an issue and if any parts of the frame might fall off.

If all is good then that's perfect. If not you might want to use a newer frame so avoid breaking the frame and wasting the lenses.

Hey all, Apologies if you guys have already addressed this.

However, I am currently looking to get a super-light spectacle frame for home computer use.

These are the ones i've come up with:

1) The Zoff's smart frames with the Ultem plastic.

2) Silhouette's Urban Lite

3) Swiss-Flex's airlight

Which should I go for?

No worries, we share whenever we can.

Lightest just go for Swiss flex. It should address your concerns for a light and comfortable frame.
