Hi, any recommendation for prescription glasses with magnetic clipon sunglass attachment?

Currently using owndays snap but the model i like is no longer in production.
maybe this?
Hi bro, considering your wife's probable usage (polarized outdoor, non-polarized indoor/dim conditions) I'ld suggest going for polarized clip-on glasses.

Hello, lets say my spectacle have a hairline crack (from around the center to one end and not so deep) on one of the transition lenses. How much will it cost to repair the lens?

unfortunately, you cant repair it. Have to buy a new piece/pair of lenses. If it is made not too long ago, you can go back to the shop and see what can be done e.g. replacement at a small fee or not choice a new piece/pair at a discounted rate.

My degree is 500. I would like to buy rimless spect. What type of Zeiss spect lens would be good and is there a need to go for high index 1.74?

Hi Bro,

normally wouldn't recommend Zeiss for rimless spectacles since they do not have Impact Resistance lenses.

However if you prefer Zeiss lenses, then I'ld suggest going for 1.60 index lenses instead of 1.74 index. 1.60 index is less likely to break as compared to 1.74 index. Durability over aesthetics

If you are looking towards Hoya brand, you can consider the Nulux active classic or sync lll lenses. Both are designed as anti-fatigue/digital lenses with power at the lower area of the lenses reduced so as to relax your eye muscles. However as the sync lll is fully customised e.g. panto(how the frame tilts), vertex distance(how far is eye away from the frame) and more calculated, the sync lll price is more premium. Both comes with blue control too and you can opt out of it if you like.

What’s a comfortable price range for you? Just for lenses. Also, any rough idea what degree are you for your eyes?
