East... probably Katong Jamco optical.

I'm looking at getting a basic Lindberg or Yellow T. I leave in the east. Any recommendation? My vision is 200 and 350. A bit of astigmatism. Thanks!

Basic Lindberg series would be acetanium, N.O.W, spirit/air titanium, RIM and ranges for about 700-800++(not factoring in discount). Jamco gives good prices!

Thanks for the reply. May I know what would be the price range?

Thanks EyezoneOpticalSG.
Yea ... I just heard of this Crizal Blue UV capture last week.
I have been searching the net for answers but It still does not provide me much answers.
I think Essilor has finally decided to catch on and use a better product.

Varilux liberty is a very basic pair of progressives. Usually most people wouldn't go for this range.

Design of the mid range lenses quoted is similar to varilux comfort
Oic. Would the field of vision be wide? Since my usage is quite multi vast. I am driving and works long hours in front of a Pc.

Mioview is a mid range wide angle progressive lens, suitable for 1st time wearers. Driving and working long hours in front of a Pc shouldn't be an issue.

I'm looking at the Lingberg Air Titanium, and i was wondering if it is able to get glass lenses on those. I understand that the lenses need to be grooved - would this be possible on glass? Thanks

Is there a reason why you prefer it on glass?
High powered?
Optical clarity?

Optical clarity, and pretty high myopia (700-800)

Adding a hole is possible on glass but the "cons" far outweigh the "pro"

Glass has higher tendency to break, especially when you add a hole to it.

Weight-wise is far heavier than plastic, what I can foresee is the spectacles is front heavy with little to no support from the hinge behind the ears. Glasses will keep sliding down the nose, overall comfort will be very much affected.

If you want good optical clarity & thin lenses, Zeiss & Tokai produces a range of plastic lenses that provides pretty good optics as well. Overall comfort would be much better than to use glass.

Adding on to what user eyezone mention, if you place the frame on the table it will likely topple forward based on the weigh of the lenses and frame. So plastic Would be a better option imho.

Just ask the shop which sells you the Lindberg to recommend you accordingly. But as what we suggested just do plastic. 1.74 or 1.76 will do fine.

If it’s the acetanium or buffalo horn design then glass is fine.

Do you guys have the experience of the nosepads being too loose on the nosepad arms? Is it an issue or quite normal?
