hi guys

during enlistment for NS i went for zeiss stratch resistance lense but eventually still scratch inside tekong

ever since then have nvr really believe/tried out "premium" lense anymore

after working a few year now, i am thinking of making my first spect using premium lense
so far in my life always using normal lense,

i do not know where to start.
so far comb a few page into this thread, seem to me like hoya and zeiss are the top contender?

i am mainly short sight on one eye and astigmatism heavy on another

If I follow my contact Lense prescription

Left eye:
Cyl -1.75
Axis 160
Sph + 0

Right eye:
SPH -2.50
Cyl -0.75
Axis 10


Friends had always recommend me to go for PC Lense like owndays that block blue light
They claim it reduce eye fatigue , but I had always been in front of PC 10 hour daily and I don’t get eye fatigue
So not sure if it is necessary
Maybe transition Lense and anti fogging Lense will have more practical usage for me

There used to be anti-fogging lenses by Essilor, but need to constantly apply a solution for the anti-fog to be present. Ceased to exist already, probably cos it's not really an anti-fog lens in the 1st place.

Transition/ photochromic lenses are good if you need to be under the sun for long hours everyday. Otherwise Blue Absorb or blue reflect lenses would be better for you.

Hi Guys,
Need some advise here.
I recently bought a pair of spectacles with Zeiss Duravision Blue Protect (1.6) Lenses.
Notice that when i put on my spectacles, i can see the light reflections on the top left/left corner on my left lens and top right corner of my right lens.
It happens when there are lights on the celling behind me.
Is it actually normal?
thanks

Hi bro,

Zeiss Blue Protect lenses comes with a blue coating. The blue coating is pretty reflective. Reflection is much more obvious when you have a bigger frame.

thanks Bro for the advise.
Previously I'm using crizal prevencia (1.5) but I don't see such reflection.
I wondering does thinner lenses actually causes more reflection as well?

The reflection I'm seeing is actually bothering me. (quite sensitive to lighting)
Are there any lenses that u can recommend without such reflections?

By the way, for SPH -2.25, CYL -1.24 for both eyes, can we go for 1.5 thickness?

thanks!

Hmm is there a size difference in the 2 frames? Cos all blue reflect lenses works the same way.

Recommend that you go for Tokai Lutina/ Asahi Lite UV3G / Kodak UVblue. These lenses have the (HEV)blue block feature embed into the lens material itself. Probably drop by your opticians and sound out your concern. Most would be nice enough to replace the lenses and let you top up the difference only.

For a degree of SPH -2.25 + CYL -1.25, you can go for 1.50/1.56 index lenses if your axis is along 180(Horizontal)

If your axis is along 90(Vertical), I'ld suggest going for 1.60 index, otherwise it'll be too thick.

Possible to have both transition and blue absorb Lense together?
Not possible right?

Given my degree, is $600 budget good enough for decent Lense + frame?

Transition is one of the brand for the category of Photochromic lens.

Asahi Lite UV3G Sunfilter is both photochromic + Absorbs up to 94% HEV (Blue) light.

Your degree is not high, $600 is more than enough to go for Asahi Lite UV3G Sunfilter 1.60 index + decent frame (E.g. Rayban/ Oakley/ Braun Buffel/ Nike/ Agnes B/ CK/ Charmant)

Cataract surgery, though I am of the opinion that she is under the impression that an optometrist is better than an optician.

I'm guessing one sees an optometrist only in situations where an optician can't do glasses for a person?
