My existing lens coating is running out. Need to do new progressive lens.

This is my present lens data
R SpH-6.25 Cyl-1.25 AX 180 ADD1.75 Inset +1.9
L SpH-6.00 Cyl-1.25 AX 180 ADD1.75 Inset +1.9

Index 1.67

What will be the lens cost for Hoya Dynamic premium and Lifestyle Balansis?
And what is the different these 2 lens?

Any recommended shop?

Hi bro, what lenses are you currently using? Any idea? Also can I recommend you to either use lifestyle V+ or else dynamic premium? Honestly balansis is a neither here Nor there Lens. Lifestyle V+ is much better in terms of reading + distance and dynamic premium is slightly poorer(based of feedback).

The difference is usually the better lenses has a wider FOV in terms of distance and reading, lesser distortion at the side too.

Presently, I'm using Hoya progressive lens. Index 1.67.
This was done in 2014

I cannot remember what type it is . Not sure does Lens Name help, Lens Name: FD167BG-H

Some said should do 2 type of glass. 1 is progressive, another one is Intermediate distance. This is the first time, I heard of "Intermediate distance", have no idea what that does,

My work is desk bound work. Face computer whole day long.

Oh, then FD is the equivalent to hoya balansis. If you are comfortable with it then can still stick to it, or else I suggest lifestyle V+. Progressive is good for different views, but yes as suggested by others, having a separate pair of intermediate might be better for you or as we term it, office lens.
This will Ensure you don’t have to tilt your Chin up constantly when looking at your computer.

So far, I quite okay with present lens.
I also want to add anti-blue and transition.

based on my eye data, I scare Lifestyle V+ might cost me 1 leg 1 arm.

what will be the lens cost for Hoya Balansis and Lifestyle V+.


If I get a intermediate spec, when in meeting, I might have to keep on changing lens when looking at laptop and projector screen.
Like very busy.

If that’s the case then invest in a better one like lifestyle V+ then.
However office lens has different types, some allowing you to see even further than just computer distance. 1,2,4 metres. It can be adjusted to those distances.
For hoya as Long as you get transitions/sensity, auto will have free blue control added in. Its their perks.

What’s the difference between the Hoya Sync III versus the Nulux EP?

Sync 3 is an antifatigue lens with lower half of lens having a reduced power of your choice. 3 choices +1.32D being the highest. More than zeiss digital lenses too. Comes with blue control and you can opt out.

Nulux EP is a customised single vision that factors in frame vertex distance, frame wrap, panto tilt and other details.

Will the different “zones” have a sudden change in power? Wait a minute, doesn’t that make the Sync III a bifocal?

& the Sync-III doesn’t factor for these?

For the first half of your question, yes it progressively reduces thus like a mini progressive instead of bifocals.

Second half, nope. Usually I order their default parameter lenses with no issues.😃

Any affordable progressive lens to recommend?

Since such lens have multi degrees, will it require a longer time to get the lens ready?

Happy CNY!
What’s your budget range and your prescription?
It will take about a week to be ready usually.

Finally looking to replace my current Mykitas after 6 years of use. Anyone here can guide me through the current range of Hoya single vision offerings? Sort of recall I went for 1.6 with HVLL specifically due to low Abbe value. Wanna know if their personalised lenses (Nulux V?) are worth it.

Nulux V+ is a really good lens though I personally feel that nulux EP is good enough.
