Hi, if I would like a lens that could reduce the blue light from PC, yet won't have the yellowish tint, what options do I have?

Blue Reflect lenses block up to 30% across whole blue spectrum (~400-500nm) & are generally much yellowish


Blue Absorb lenses block up to 94% of the high energy waves(up to 420nm), while letting the rest of beneficial blue light in.(~420-500nm). These lenses have an almost not noticeable yellow tint.

Hi bro,
Kodak City lens is pretty new in the market. Not sure how the reduce glare mechanism works exactly.

Any bro wanna share their experience from using Kodak City lens? Yay or Nay?

Hello, I just wanna check if my pair of prescription transitions glasses which I recently purchased are Transitions gen 7 or the latest gen 8. If itís stated on my card that itís ďT7 GreyĒ, I assume itís gen 7? I was hoping that itíll be gen 8 since they shouldíve arrived in Singapore already.

I see. But does the Asahi lens helps to reduce night glare ? My crizal lens is doing a really bad job here.

If you're using Crizal Prevencia, chances are you'll see alot of reflection. Might appear as glare.

Asahi has Blue absorb technology embed into the material & utlilises the usual Anti-Reflection coating.

I'ld say night glare is much less in the case for Asahi Lite UV3G lenses when compared to Crizal Prevencia.

Good read for us all on blue light filter lens.
Do note, research are still being carried out and there are still insufficient studies to prove that too much blue light causes the formation of some eye diseases.

That's great , night driving has been dreadful to me



The one on the left is what I have been having all the time on my crizal lens , will the effect better or close to the one on the right with Asahi ?

If so i will go to your shop and buy liao
