Hi looking for another alternative to Zeiss Precision Plus as need to make a pair of progressive as current need to change, any recommendation, prefer to be ard $600 or less, need the following (on tight budget)

- Transitions
- Blue control
- Frame include if possible

Hi bro, what's your degree like?

Look out for 4k Varios Premium Transition Nano Blue by Mvision.
Performance is similar to Zeiss ID 2 but much more affordable. If degree is not too high, a 1.50 index version with transition would be within your budget.

My Varilux Physio 3 progressive is super discomfort. Desk bound is merely acceptable but outdoor is terrible especially night vision is blurry.
What other options could I get for good outdoor and night vision with progressive lenses?
Hi bro,

I suggest doing a full check on your eyes to determine the cause of issues you're facing, then decide on the lens to best suit your eyes.

Hi bro,

ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect is a Blue reflect lens. These blocks up to 30% across whole blue spectrum (~400-500nm)


If you want lenses with more protection, ask for Asahi Lite UV3G SunFilter.
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)

disclaimer: straight lines are drawn to make it easier for me to draw :X Actual lines are not as straight as what is illustrated


Asahi Lite UV3G SunFilter turns dark under the sun, absorbs 94% HEV(Blue) light, has super hydrophobic coat. Kwong Shin should have these lenses too. Ask them for this while you're there.

Can anyone advise?

My specs come with clip ons. I want to change the colour of the clip on lens from black to brown gradient. Donít need degree (since my specs already covers that).

Any recommendations? Iím hoping to get flat as opposed to curved lenses. Thanks.

Hey guys, I am looking to get a pair of Lindberg frames after getting my eyes checked recently and realised I definitely need new glasses. Tried some on and got poisoned (especially coming from Oliver People's frames). Any place that you guys recommend to get it from? The place I went to was Videre, they were not willing to discount the frames, so its literally RRP. Their service was good though. Looking for a better deal.

Also, both my eyes are 650 degrees-ish each side, with astig. Does Lindberg frames allow the highest index lens to be used? I read online that it might be too fragile if 1.74 index lens is used.

Let me know your thoughts and would really be grateful for your recommendation on where to get a pair.

Depending on which Series of lindberg you are getting. N.O.W, Strip titanium, MOF, Spirit might not be suitable for 1.74. If you are getting Acetanium/Buffalo Horn/Rim is still fine for 1.74.
Give Jamco A try, they have the widest collection of lindbergs and have really good prices on frame and lenses.

Cheers!
