Hi GANGSTERKIA, mind Pm me your shop location? Would like to check out your shop and my location is at west. I don't mind travelling.

My recent activity has been working a lot on programming. This has caused my eyes to have strain, and feeling groggy at the end of the day after I finished work.

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!
My apologies, didnt tagged you in the post.

Hi no problem! Unfortunately I won’t be sharing my workplace location for personal reasons but I can recommend you some places which will be able to help!

You can drop by jamco at Katong shopping center. Really experienced optometrists and opticians and they have a wide selection of frames. Lindberg too if you need help on those.

They will be able to solve your spectacle/eye issues. Otherwise let me know if there’s a certain area you prefer and I can try to recommend you a place nearby!

There's couple of reasons why there's an eye fatigue. Could be degree/eye muscles/current glasses not fitted properly. Best to get an experience Optometrist/Optician to check it out.

Tip: Some Lens companies are really good at marketing but their actual products fail to live up to expectation. 🤭

Question Free/Cheap Frames Adjustment?

Hi everyone, I have a pair of spectacles which are not fitting right at the moment. I bought them outside of Singapore and aside from the fit, I'm happy with them.

I'd like to ask where can I have them adjusted for free or at a cheap price? From where I bought these, I can have them adjusted for free regardless of which boutique I got them. Heh.

Not sure if this is relevant but the frames are Ray Ban and lenses are Crizal, so I'm also looking for recommendations where I can have them adjusted without worrying they will be damaged.

Yes for Essilor but I have not tried Zeiss before. After trying Hoya, I did not look back.

Then would you rather go to their other boutique outlets?
Unless you are comfortable with the fact that during adjustment, there is a possibility that the frame will break. If not most shops would probably do it for you if you are willing to bear the risk involve.
