Just got it at $225 for 1.67. If you want 1.6 will be $170.

Think can bring your own frame. But I support the shop a bit.

Actually just curious, are optical shops able to earn more from making lens than selling frames?

Should be.
My Lao hua every 3-4 years increase.

Need to change lens.
But not the frames.

Just by how much %.

Plus so many owndays alike
They donít do lens. Really asking for it.

Just that they donít guarantee the frames
In the event they break.

Was recommended to use Hoya mystyle (modern) progressive lens with bluecontrol as i am on PC/laptop 10-12 hrs per day. Is there any other brand of lens that i can research on besides this brand?
