Hmm cloudy vision is not normal, neither is headache.

I suggest going back to the store to have your eyes checked again.
Ok. Thanks for your reply.
To elaborate: When I take the new glasses off, my vision seems almost Milky. Like there’s a filter of white over everything. But when I put back the glasses, it's clear immediately. The filter will clear within few minutes.
Saw similar questions in quora but no answers.

Going back tomorrow and to polytechnic next week for check up.

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

Hoya for progressives.
Thanks, think still got quite some years before I need progressives haha!

Hi bro,

Switching to glasses because of reading problems?

We offer eye exam with the following checks/assessments:
  • Assessment of all previous spectacles, to determine cause of discomfort.(If any)
  • Refraction (Distance, Intermediate, Reading)
  • Strabismus check (Phoria/tropia)
  • Ocular Motility Assessment

Rrp will be between 228 to 355 for 1.67 blue filter lenses.

From a neutral standpoint, I say if you are more particular about clarity go for zeiss.

If you prefer something more Budget, Kodak blue 1.67 will be enough.

Mid tier essilor or hoya also can. you can also try Brand’s being promoted by the others like Asahi, tokai lutina...

The lenses cuts similar amount of HEV light thus it is up to your preference and the recommendation from your practitioner.

It’s great that Eyezone is doing such a good service for the public.

But just a side note, many places do charge a fee for an eye check if no glasses are made. Glasses made=consultation waived. Reason is because we value ourselves as eye care professionals. We check your eye, your eye health(anterior and posterior), eye muscles etc. A consultation similarly to a checkup at a doctor or even Dentist requires a sum to be paid. There are many instruments which cost a hefty sum to purchase e.g. Fundus camera, optical coherence tomography(not many places have) and if you visit an eye doctor, the amount charged is not small. So an eye check @ngee Ann or even SP covers all these machine and check for only 5 dollars. It is a steal to have your annual eye check there.

PSA
Not all optical retailer(including my workplace) does a free full eyecheck, so once again it is a great initiative for Eyezone to provide such a service! Cheers to all!

Yup, no obligation to buy anything from us but you'll need to book a session through the link below.

This service is offered as a troubleshooting session for progressive lens wearers as we know many people are not having clear & comfortable vision with their existing pair.

We specialize in solving eye problems for people who experience headaches, double vision, constant blur vision & wavy vision too.

To book a slot, simply visit this page

I'm thinking of going JB to make new lens for my existing frame. I work 10-12hrs on PC daily hence it needs to have blue light filter. Degree is around 600 each.

If my budget is around S$200-300, what lens brand should I look out for and which one of these are out of budget?

-Kodak Total Blue
-Kodak UVBlue
-Tokai Lutina
-Asahi UV420
-Essilor Crizal Prevencia
-Hoya BlueControl
-Zeiss BlueProtect
-Shamir Bluezero

Feel free to recommend other brands within my budget.
