It should be classified as blue reflect or blue absorb. Both also filters blue light to a certain amount.
Nikon seecoat blue is a blue reflect.

Nikon seecoat blue is block or filter?

Digital vs Progressive

Hi all,

I have read that Digital Lenses may be a better option than Progressive Lenses for people who are new to Presbyopia. Can the experts share the pros and cons of Digital, and possibly the price difference?

I am approximate:
Myopia 4.00
Astig 2.00
Presbyopia 1.50
each side

Never wore Progressive before.

Thank you.

Hi bro!

Digital lenses are generally recommended to people with Presbyopia of +1.00Ds or less & progressive lenses for those with >+1.25Ds.

A pair of basic 1.50 index progressive lenses starts from $180 onwards (Depending on the brand you choose).
Depending on your needs/daily activities, you can also choose to top up & have Add-ons like:
  • Thinner lenses
  • Wider Angle lenses
  • Colour changing lenses (E.g. Transitions, Photochromic)
  • HEV Light (Blue) Filter (E.g. Asahi-Lite UV3G, Tokai Lutina)

Hey,
Your reading addition/presbyopia is already over the limit for digital lenses which is 1.25(from what I know).
It is better as there is lesser distortion as compared to a progressive so it helps you to adapt to the new way of reading/looking far/walking easier before you actually transit to a progressive.

Post Zeiss progressive lens 1.6 price range

Hi guys,

I was quoted S$1368 for the Zeiss progressive lens 1.6.
Is the normal price range or I can get a better price by sourcing around other shops?

Thanks in advance.

If you ask me, i wouldn't want to take the risk helping you do it.
But i'm sure others will, for a fee depending on how much they deem fit.

Honestly, not many places will take up this job UNLESS you are fine with accidental damage to your frame or lens or both. Most place won’t bear the warranty/risk unless you give them the go ahead to do it. You got them both overseas?
