Made a new pair of glasses yesterday but still having headache. Is it because of unequal increase in lenses powers. 0.75 D and 2 D. It's still under prescribed by about 1.25 D .

Hmm cloudy vision is not normal, neither is headache.

I suggest going back to the store to have your eyes checked again.

Airwear material (polycarbonate) has pretty poor optics, some wearers experience blurness even when using same degree after switching to airwear.

Unless really necessary or you're already on polycarbonate material, i wont suggest using this material.

Alternative impact resistance lenses would be Trivex (Impact resistance & superior optics)

Not following the prescription lens tech/innovation.

But what are the top tier lens maker/series recently?

I’ve been using Zeiss Single Vision Individual currently, one with blue protect, one without (using this only when editing photos or need color accuracy task). And also a Zeiss Digital on my old glasses.

From a neutral standpoint. Zeiss is still the best for single vision.

Hoya for progressives.

Yes able to. My colleague went Canada in winter afew times and no problem.

Your worry should be on your frame, when you come from the frigid temperature outside and head into a warmer environment. The extreme temp change could cause your frame to snap. (Expand and contract). Seen that afew times.

Contact lens rmb to use eye drops before leaving the building and after entering.
Also prior to removal rmb to use eye drops as it might adhere to your eyes as it’s too cold.

Jb is always cheaper, but the problem is if there is any adjustment issue or even lens issue. You need to travel back there to service it. Singapore shops unfortunately are more cautious in adjustment frames not from their shop as they can’t provide warranty for you.
