I wearing Crizal lens now. Lots of scratches.

Any advice how to better take care of my lens? I usually use my t-shirt and towel to wipe them.

I was reading what's the differences between different indexes of lens and one of the advantages of high index is scratch resistance.

Does higher index means I can clean my lens using my t-shirt or towel?

Hi bro,

Higher scratch resistance doesn't mean can use your t-shirt or towel to clean your lenses. if you use t-shirt/towel to clean, it will still scratch, no matter how scratch resistant your lenses are.

Hi guys, was thinking about getting the Owndays snap-on glasses today since it’s like a 2 in 1 but didn’t cause they would probably take about 2 weeks to make, I’m hoping to get it before the 27 Dec since I’ll be flying off then, any places can make mine ASAP? Not really looking to pay more than what Owndays is offering though. Thanks a bunch

Here’s my prescription:
R: PD(32), S(-0.50), C(-3.25), AX(180)
L: PD(32), S(0), C(-3.25), AX(170)

1) Is $160 for 1.67 Asahi UV3G a good price?

2) Also, I'm looking to buy a pair of sunglasses as well. Are Zoff lenses okay? I was quoted ~130 for their 1.67 polarized lenses (excl frames). The store said their lenses are from Seiko.

If not Zoff, any recommendations? I wanted Maui Jims but they're out of my budget for now.

3) With my astig of abt 200 and degree about 450, will 1.6 index be fine for me?

Thx

My Oliver Peoples spec finally have cracks after 8 years of heavy usage.

Time to get another pair.

It pays to invest in good pair of frame.
The gold coating on the side frame doesn’t fade much. \o/ \o/

Hi,

Is there any comparison of Zoff vs Owndays that I would like to get reading glasses?

Thanks.

Is it possible to confirm the model of lens that you get?

Recently made a pair and the shop says is Hoya, but it doesn't behave like the awesome reviews here. The 1.67 has massive color aberration so I had to go back to 1.6 (yay free money for the shop). Which does kind of follow Hoya's datasheet but even f*cking Owndays is doing better in this aspect with their 1.67 so something doesn't feel right here. Even the AR loses out to my previous unknown lens that I have with me right now.

Oh it's $200 for lens + $200 for frame btw. Single vision no blue no progressive no whatever.

Hoya, stellify or Pentax? Did they mention which was given to you? Stellify and Pentax are also under hoya.
