620 before less as you mentioned? A 1.6 zeiss photofusion cost 365rrp thus frame is 255 if calculate this way.

So, you do the math ba. If you are comfortable with the price you go ahead and do. If not can try ask for more discount.

Cheers!

So what the shop is quoting for the latest oakley frame and the carl zeiss lenses would be within "reasonable" price range at $570?

If its reasonable, then i'll spring for it.

Thank you for your input.

Hi, I have this issue for a a numbers of years but had never asked for an opinion online, even after telling my usual spectacle shop and getting a new pair of glasses, the issue is still not solve.
I have short sighted and astigmatism, And I always feel uncomfortable after putting my glasses for more then 2 hours. My eyes will get tired and it will feel better after I take them down.
Any explanation for this?

Hi bro,

there's couple of possibilities why this is happening,
1. Myopia/ Astigmatism incorrect
2. Phoria/ Tropia
3. Accomodation/ convergence issues

I suggest dropping by to have a quick check to determine the actual cause of this discomfort.

Any recommendations
Hi bro,
Rimless frames price ranges from ~$120 to $600+

1.60 Blue Absorb lenses ~$140 to $198

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)

Good budget progressive lens

Hi there, I was wondering any recommendation of progressive lens for budget conscious of around $200-$300?

My current prescription is R: SPH:-750, CYL:-100, AXIS:40 PD:64
L: SPH:-650, CYL:-100, AXIS:140 PD:64

Currently using Crizal hi-index lenses at 1.67

Looking to add Blue filter as I do a lot of pc stuff daily so to have better protection. Am considering 1.74 hi index too if not too X.. or whether my current degree require that level?

Good afternoon,

I personally feel you need to up your Budget to at least 350-400.
Most Budget/affordable progressive starts at 200ish for 1.50index. Thus 300 for 1.67 is really hard to find unless the shop gives you some crazy discount. I am not sure about owndays or zoff etc, you might have better luck there if your Budget is around 300.
However if you give it 400-450 then you won’t have a problem finding 1.67 progressive lenses.
Do note blue filter is a paid add on unless the shop waived it for you.
Hope this helps. Cheers.

Can I get a price check on the market rate on the following prescription on just the single vision lenses?

1. Around 800 and 900 on SPH for left and right eyes respectively
2. Astigmatism CYL of 250 for both eyes
3. Blue light lenses from Hoya
4. 1.74 index
