The difference is the quality/clarity and extra measurements needed for the higher tiers.
I.scription is more customised whereby even night vision test will be taken into account and a special machine iprofiler(zeiss) have to be used in order to obtain the data for the lenses and thus will cost more.
Scratch resistance and all will apply but no such thing as scratch proof.

Thanks for the infor it help alot.

I won't go for the transition or anything as my frame is those clip on style

Also won't go for blue protect as the lens will affect the colour I see, I need is those very clear lens ..

Sorry got a few more questions,

What about the different type they offer ??
Single Vision AS, Single Vision Superb , single Vision Individual

Also what is this i.Scription??

And does the lens come with all those scratch dust resistance coating??

And also roughly how much the price will be??
Sorry ar first time change a better lens so I have alot nub question..

Hi everyone! Currently looking for a new pair of specs similar to http://www.fournines.co.jp/en/products/detail240.html

Saw this at the four nines boutique store but find it really out of my budget, does anyone have something similar to recommend? Thanks!

Asahi UV3G block blue light looks good

I tested the Asahi UV3G yesterday, and looks good compare to mine.
Not sure is it necessary to block all the blue light or how much blue light will enter our eyes ?

BTW. @EyezoneOpticalSG any further discount for hardwarezone users? please PM me if have. Thanks

I believe Iscription will cost about 1-200 more. Somewhere along there as I do not have an iprofiler. I believe you can such online. Kj optometrists at plaza sing has. You can give them a call to find out more.

Hi bro, Asahi UV3G doesn't block out all blue light.

These lenses block up to 94% of the high energy waves(up to 420nm), while letting the rest of beneficial blue light in.(~420-500nm)


We price our items reasonably as all our 5 stores are in HDB area.
Friendly HDB prices 🤭

Yeah, pretty decent. Sometimes, if the lenses are still in good condition, can find a frame of similar design to try to fit the lenses in to salvage the lenses.
I wouldn't say attract dust... All stuff will have dust on it.. Kind of inevitable. If you are happy with prevencia can stick with it. If not can upgrade to other brands e.g zeiss/hoya blue protect/control
using back lenses possible but a lot of time the focal point will still be off which makes the vision blurry.

I had done it before so I know.

Now I made a new pair with expensive lenses and I had a spare brand new exact pair of eyeglasses for backup which I bought at discounted promo 40% off.

Hi Xii4oboii,

You could visit japansabae-glasses.com or google with keywords zazen, glasses, sabae, japan and find the online shop producing what you are looking for from the same city which is Sabae city in Japan. Sabae city produces 97% of all eyewear in Japan.


I am a Singaporean living in Sabae city for 13 years and my japanese wife`s family operates the online store and they have factories in Sabae. You could read the story on the 105 years of eyewear production at the website. Celluloid is more shiny than acetate and does not change shape as easily as acetate (therefore preferred professional guitar picks are made from celluloid). It seems that only Sabae city could produce celluloid eyewear now and first titanium eyewear was first invented in Sabae.

The price is good as well because direct factory price.

This is my first post here and does not have enough posts to post image or url...

Sorry that I am inexperienced at this forum.
