Was quoted $200 for Crizal Transitions (7th Gen) and $220 for Zeiss Photofusion.

Thoughts on which is the better buy?

Seems like their photofusion doesn't change as fast as Transitions 7th Gen. What are your thoughts/experiences?

If both eyes can see clear individually but not together, there might be a chance you could have phoria/ accomodation issues. Pretty common symptom in people who needs to see near for long hours on a daily basis.

Probably good to drop by your usual optician to check your eyes in details to find our more about your issue though. If they can't check, you can drop by my outlet to have a quick check.

Was at jb city square. Salesman/optician(?) suggested progressive lens with zero degree shortsightedness. I only needed reading glasses but he said progressive lens means I won’t need to remove my reading glasses if I also need to look at something at normal distance... any thots on this?

Buy what you need. No point falling for pushy sales to only find out that you don't need those unnecessary stuff later.

If you work deskbound, a pair of reading /office lens would suffice.
If your work require you to walk around and see near at the same time, then a pair of progressive lenses would be suitable

Thanks for your advice! Another question. My first time making reading glasses. Frens say can just buy off the shelf. Wats the dif from buying off the shelf other than costs?

Off the shelf types are considered readers. The lenses used are usually made of acrylic and are way inferior in optics compared to custom made (Opthalmic) lenses. Usually good for up to 15 mins use to do a quick reading.

Custom made ones are prescribed according to your eye's degree and usually are more comfortable as the material used is better and takes into consideration your eye pupil distance.
