i am wearing swissflex for about 4 months and having buyers remorse.
i find it getting too light and i have to often readjust, especially if my nose bridge gets oily
then there is always this constant fear of damaging the frame since it is SO light!
kinda regret getting this pair (not saying swissflex is bad but does not suit my personal usage). am looking at lindberg after some of you guys mentioning about it.
it will be a waste though if i dont utilise my swissflex pair.
If u sweat often.. Get frames from Oakley.. Those with obutium rubber as temple one.. Their frame light and slip proof

Is there any good comfortable glue-on nose pad for plastic frame to recommend?

My current pasted silicon pad on Moscot frame is too rubbery feel.

Sent from Feel Song Each Day using GAGT
why Oakley? nowadays they are like overpriced and underquality. I used to own 1 long ago, bottle rocket, very solid and long lasting but even the shop people tell me now not to get.

I also hear say from the optical shop selling them. I owned the older bottle rocket which is damn solid but I sweat a lot, so metal frames a bit out for me. So, looking to use back Rudy Project, looking at Fotonyk which is whole thing plastic, no rubber no metal for my sweat to corrode.

Am currently using Rudy Project Impulse with RX Direct. Very very very solid except the rubber and metal parts where it cant take my sweat. lol.

My bottlerock still can get slight bend but this Impulse like totally nothing at all...

It will drop but no issue as they're ways to work around. Drilling into frame is not an option for me that's why I'm looking for a good quality paste-on pads but just couldn't find.

Oakley nosepads replacement cost 15 dollars unless you are out of the 2 year warranty period.

If not, you probably have to go order from your place of purchase or to Oakley service center at Millenia towers.

Currently, I'm wearing Ray-Ban RB 8611 full rim prescription frame.

Any recommendation for prescription frame of similar weight?

Criterias for my lens:

1. After prolong period wearing of contact lens, I seems to have minor ptosis or lazy eyes. I'm not sure which is mine (would be good if someone can recommend who i should approach)
Looking for a lens that won't strain my eyes.

2. Blue light filter. Long hours working infront of electronic device.

3. Would be good to have UV filter that won't darken (don't want transition lens).

Would be good if u have estimation on the price of the lens

Your own shop shouldn’t charge(depends), other places likely will charge for you. Depending on which Oakley model you using, certain push in nosepad(not screw), is of different size. Take note of that!

Hi All, I have depth perception issue after I got my new pair of spectacles yesterday.

The optician explain that it is normal as the new spectacles now has astigmatism correction (0.25) but my old pair doesn't. The new spectacles also has a different frame shape and bigger lens size than my old spectacles which will affect my perception as well. He ask me to give my eyes some time to adjust and if this symptom still persist, he may need to remove astigmatism correction. So I went back home and today is the 2nd day, the situation is still the same. I also felt slight eye strain/headaches.

I would like to ask for opinions here on my situation. Should I wait it out for 2-3days first? Or I should go to another optical shop for a second check/opinion? Any other suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

All shops can do. Even Owndays also u can bring other frames and they will do it for u.

But for just doing the lens, some shops charge slightly more for the lens compared to if u buy both frame plus lens. Some shops call this edging fee.

If you want those branded or specialised lenses, better bring to a reputable shop.
Forget any owndays lens. The quality is not there.

Theres barrel distortion and internal reflection.
