Went down to my favourite JP optician and she recommended Lindberg frames as they can customise everything from frame, bridge, temple, color, etc. But I saw the gold frame costs more than 8k without lenses. Also their titanium range costs $700 excluding lenses too. Any thoughts?
Lindberg are one of the better premium quality spectacle frame. They are really light and comfortable.

The customizing one is also very interesting. I have 2 models which are able to customize and one buffalo horn.

The one in my DP is one of the customized one.

For the customisation part, it seems interesting. To share my personal experience of using Lindberg, I have 2 pairs of titanium range which in fact both of them commissioned at JP(=Jamco??) except for the 2nd pair was only the progressive lens. Personally, I like Lindberg for its design ie w/o any screws and nuts, its light weight and "simple and clean" design. For its price point, it is very individual. Until today, I still cannot convince myself to hoot its horn series which I understand Lindberg had increased its price.

I'm very satisfied with my tokai 1.76 go lens and planning to make another pair. Do the industry insiders here know if the tokai 1.76 cvf is now available locally?
Hi Bro,

Tokai 1.76 Aspheric & Bi-Aspheric are both available locally. If your degree is not very high, i suggest going for just 1.76 Aspheric will do.

Hi, any recommendations for rimless frames that does not slip off easily? Have tried a few: oakley (rubber still slips when I sweat), Silhouette (found it too thin, didn't like to ear hook).

TIA.

🤔IMHO all spectacles tends to slip off when there's perspiration. Especially so with rimless wrap-around frames since we want minimal pressure on the lens-hinge attachment. Tag Heuer used to be pretty good but the local agent went bust. 🤭

Sorry ah don't think I got an answer yet but what's the best range of zeiss lens I can get for short sightedness + astig. And what is one tier down from the top?
Single vision? Or?

The best Zeiss Single Vision lens would be the Single Vision Individual lens
And the next tier down would be the Single Vision Superb Asiana.

Both as stated are Single Vision and has the ''better clarity'' among most lens brands.

Just brought a Oliver people titanium frame last month. This is my first time with thin temple. I have a issue that the frame will slip down once my face become oily. When for adjustment once and recently adjust my own but not really solve the problem. Still slip but not that much.

My question is this kind of slipping issue is fixable through adjustment?

Most glasses will be like that.
i can tell you even with silicon nosepads, the oil on your face will always make that area slippery for the glasses. constant changing of nosepads will help to alleviate the problem slightly. but of course, good adjustment also plays a part.

Can be adjust.. The temple try to bent and make it hugging yr back of the skull.. I got many frames online for my wife also.. All adjust until swee swee.. One tip is not rely on the hook behind.. Dun bent that too much until causing pain to back of ear.. The aim is to have the 2 temples hugging yr back of skull. And best is they dun touch the area between eyes and ear. Like this is the most comfortable fit

Should be hard plastic.

Sigh.. conclusion my oily face is the problem. The slippery is since day 2. I think the thin temple also cannot hook nicely. which type of nose pad holds better?

Go for Air Nosepad, should solve your issue. Usually use this to resolve the problem!
