Ah, for spirit/air titanium usually most of my customers also indent for colour changes, lens shape then we will choose from other brand design also possible.
Or Paris miki Taka outlet.

Thank you for the suggestion
But i went there to see already, and as per usual neighbourhood shop, they sell the frame as it is. Unless you ask them to indent other colour/design.

Question

If you want high definition and Clarity, I suggest going for Zeiss or Tokai lenses. Optics is way better than most other brands...
What about Hoya Nulux EP HvLL lens with bluecontrol coating? Yay or Nay?

Yay. Zeiss & tokai was recommended for their material used on stock lenses.

Hoya Nulux EP HvLL has additional customisation done to improve viewing experience. Any lenses with customisation done will be better than stock lenses. However, if your degree is low (E.g. -2.00Ds & below), you might not feel the difference.

While we are on that note, is Nulux EP HvLL still the top tier for Hoya currently?

hi just want to check with you guys. I bought this specs ytd and the invoice wrote "Crizal Sapphire UV Blue Capture" and the person told me it can block blue light, but i went Crizal website after that and the Crizal Sapphire page didn't say anything about Blue Light.

Does Crizal Sapphire comes with Blue Light blocking?

Crizal Sapphire UV Blue Capture🤔

Always thought Prevencia is the one blocking ~30% blue light.

Went to collect today, free of charge. That’s a nice gesture

Optician quoted me full frame price. Sent an email straight to RB they replaced for free but still waiting for parts to come

Hi bro,

V+ claim to have "Sharp and unrestricted vision in all distance with a natural and clear visual field customised based on every position of wear"

But then again, improvements from these customization will be more obvious for higher degrees only.
