Anyone using Zeiss lens here? I have mine for about 2 years and now there's some scratches and the coating also seem to be deteriorating. Wondering how long do they usually last?

But then again I only have 1 pair of spectacles and I wear it all the time even while doing sports, and don't really take good care of it.

Hi, The lenses last as long as how you can take care of it. Wiping with your Tshirt, Tissue or not washing it after you are done with your activities would lead to faster damage to your lenses.

Thus it depends on the user themselves but 2 years is not too bad.

Today I went to another optical shop and recheck my eye.
Realized my old lens (8 days old) is overpower by 75 degrees for astig and axis off..

My sph is -600 and cyl -200.. is 1.67 index sufficient?
Cuz I wan blue protect and transition, not available in 1.74..

And has anyone tried Zeusís single vision superb/superb Asiana or Zeiss vision performance lenses? Any idea usually how many percent discount off the rrp?

Thoughts on Oliver People frames?

Is there such a big difference between normal lenses vs the branded ones?

Yes 1.67 is sufficient!
I'm comfortable with my own single vision Duravision platinum lenses however if you want more emphasis on clarity and sharpness then you can consider their SV superb Asiana.

Different shops give different Discount thus.. have to ask around.

Typically at what degree does switching from 1.67 to 1.74 start making sense? Difference in thickness-wise

Gangsterkia.. is Zeiss EnergizeMe and digital lens suitable for early 30s? Iím wondering how does that compare to their single vision.. also I notice their single vision has superb and superb Asiana. Is there a difference between the two?

Imo, above 5.00D you can consider already. Difference in thickness-wise really depends on the frame size that you are choosing. The Wider the frame, the thicker the lens will be.
Generally i will lookout at the frame size and give them a choice of 1.67/1.74 and then let them decide unless really no choice i will tell them they only have a 1.74 as an option(wide frames).

For early 30s i will recommend EnergizeME. The difference between those lenses and normal single vision is that those lenses are considered ANTI-FATIGUE whereby the lower area of the lenses has the power reduced by -0.40 minimally so as to allow you to relax your eye muscles when you do near work e.g. computer,reading and all.

Zeiss lens tier goes by norma, Super asiana, Superb and then Individual(best)

(edit) there is a difference between them, which is the clarity and aberration(to the sharp eye) as for me, i dont feel the difference. Probably as i have a high tolerance for such instances.

For Digital lens and energizeme, both comes with blueprotect. Transition/photofusion is an add-on for you to decide!(Cost)

Hi gangsterkia, are those branded lens like carl zeiss/hoya etc worth the extra $ over a normal lens? Iím not getting transition lenses. Mainly for daily use, long hours on computer. Not much astigue, degree about 600 on 1 side, 200 on the other
