Hi bro,

Nulux Classic HVLL comes with BlueControl, unless otherwise stated.

BlueControl makes the lenses appear yellowish.

Just to add on. If you do not want the blue control just let your optometrist or optician know. It can be removed and you still get HVLL coating.

Extra news

For parents here who are worried for their child myopia, a new form of myopia control lenses is open in the market for *certain* places. It’s called miyosmart/DIMS. You can Google it or ask over any questions over here(will try to answer)
White paper of the lenses is all online, results
Similar ortho-K lenses, non Invasive and it’s just a spectacle lenses.
Released by hoya a few months back. Results of test can be found on the articles too. If you need any further links then I will post here if you require.
Take note, it is a treatment lens and thus transitions/blue filter are not able to be added onto it. Material is 1.59 polycarbonate thus tougher and not easily chipped.(not scratch proof)

1.6 progressives for 220 seems quite cheap already. But did they tell you what to expect e.g. distortions and how wide are the viewing zones?
