So far branded like hoya lens have served me quite well. For unbranded lens, usaully lasted less than a year or even just a few months before the coating starts to go off or scratched. At half the price, i dont think worth it.

Can i have the price list of hoya progressive? I dont even know what is the price range for conparison. Im already above 40 but no lao hua yet. Just preparing cos saw people here advised that lao hua age starts around 38-43.

I have high short sighted and high astig single vision using RX lens. Current lens is 1.67 nulux EP costs $650. Can kind soul share what is the equivalent price for hoya progressive??

By the way i have 7 frames to change all the lenses if i tio lao hua. Having headaches and sleepless nights thinking of the costs now.
Cant say much for other brands but Mvision lens material are either from Tokai or Asahi, Progressive lens design from Optotech or IOT , Lens coating from Optotech.

Quoted from Optotech description:
OptoTech’s customer base includes nearly all manufacturers of precision optics, like Zeiss, Leica, Jenoptik, ASML, Nikon and Samsung.

I wouldn't call Mvision lenses unbranded since they can produce "Zeiss-standard" lenses at wallet friendly prices

Rayban Italy and Japan frames are pretty good

Look out for "Made in Japan" or "Made in Italy" on the frames

I recently purchased the Lemtosh TT SE from a local shop here. Was pleasantly surprised with the price. The official Moscot site shows it is for 652 SGD. I paid 650 SGD with for the frames + lenses. This was after a 20% discount on both the frames and lenses. Don't know how they can price it so low. Not unbranded lenses either, it was Hoya and my degree is pretty high.

Link to the frames : https://moscot.com/products/lemtosh-tt-se (I got the crystal/gold option)

probably 300 plus if in euros. But whichever the case, i think its a very nice frame and if it's that colour(transparent/clear frame) , its trending now.

Yea my previous frames were Oliver Peoples and those frames are so common these days, especially with Owndays having their own copy. But clear frames seem to be the new thing now and Owndays have something very similar to the clear Lemtosh themselves. Complete with the gold inlay. For a fraction of the price. But I've always wanted a Lemtosh and when I saw this special edition, I knew I had to have it. Just happy I managed to save a significant amount.

After much procrastination.. finally got my replacement glasses.

As I read a lot of documents (and am starting to see less clearly nearfield), was offered the Zeiss Digital Lens. Looks promising as I could see a clear difference during manual refraction.

Unfortunately this doesn't come in Superb lens options, but I didn't find much of a difference anyway. Let's see...

Congrats...
subsequently you will realise it's convenience. And even though people don't feel it, digital lenses relieve eyestrains from our daily close work...
