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?
Hi bro,

An Optician can perform refraction, do frame adjustments & offer advice on Opthalmic lenses and frame.

An Optometrist can do what an optician can + also screen the eyes for conditions like Cataract, AMD, Contact lens related complications & also handle contact lens.

Cataract surgery is a simple proceduce, I believe a Registered Optician would be competent in handling such cases.
Just note that it'll be good to wait for 3 months after the surgery to let the degree stabilise 1st, before you do your specs.

Hi, what kind of budget should I set aside for a pair of spectacles having following specs:

1) short sighted maybe around 300-400 on both eyes. would lien high index lense

2) Astigmatism - medium

3) emerging long sightedness. so will need progressive lenses

4) Photochromic lenses. crizal brand preferred.

5) light weight frame.

Hi bro,

Based on your degree, RRP for Essilor Crizal lenses as follows:
Varilux Liberty 3.0 Transition 1.60 $700 (Most basic with considerable amount of distortion by the side)
Varilux X design Transition 1.60 $1,150 (Premium lenses with less distortion by the side)

Light weight frames depends on the brand and material you want to go for (~$150 to $800++)

So price wise around $850 ~ $1950

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)
thanks for the advise

Hi bro,

An ophthalmologist is qualified to perform cataract surgery.

An optician would be competent to check the eye's degree after cataract surgery is done

Hi all. I have recently purchased 1.67 Crizal lenses from overseas. My power around -550/125 on both eyes. I have previously owned Zeiss and Plastic (both 1.67). All the three specs built to identical prescriptions.

My problem is that with the new Crizal objects look smaller. I have tried adjusting the nose bridge to bring the lens closer to the eye but it does not seem to make a significant difference. After 1 day it does not feel very comfortable to wear. I do not know if I can get used to it.

Looking at the lenses it seems to me that the Crizal differs in shape compared to Zeiss and Plastic. The outer surface is completely flat, while the others have a curved surface. I wonder if this makes a difference.

Any advice is appreciated.

Hi bro,

1.74 Asahi SV UV3G cost $680. Lead time is around 1 week.

If the frame you chose is not too big, we can add lenti-cut (U.p. +$100) free. Lenti-cut can reduce the thickness further by another ~10-20%. In some cases, the resultant thickness could even be thinner than glass lenses.
