Screw kind or slot in kind of nosepad?

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

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 itís the acetanium or buffalo horn design then glass is fine.
Alright, thanks guys!!

Screw kind. Some will fit quite well, meaning small allowance of movement while some are loose-fitted. Is it the issue with the nosepad arms or the issue is with the nosepads themselves?

More of the nosepads themselves, if different from original or the screws too.
The replacement screws if the screw is missing carry slightly in size and might cause the nosepad to move slightly more than usual.

I dont know what you meant. Bought in local shop. Original.

What i meant is that i have the nosepad arm screws replaced. Nosepads are still original. The replacement screws are not original.

Does Zeiss & Tokai plastic lenses comes with progressive?
roughly how much??

My Varilux Physio 3.0 cost around $9xx. for 1.67


And btw, i went around asking for normal progressive lens.
and most opticians recommended not advisable.
bcoz
i'm used to varilu physico 3.0, switching to non-branded progressive lens will see distortion at the sides??

is that true??

This is my opinion, others might disagree but physio is considered a good lenses already thus switching to a cheaper lenses might be an issue. I switched a customer from physio to hoya lifestyle V+ and she did not feel comfortable at all. When I changed her back to physio then she felt alright again.

Thus it’s either you stay with the same tier. Upgrade to a better tier or if you want something cheaper, consciously remind yourself that the distortion at the side might be more and we have to live with it.

Advice needed, New to Eyezen- antifatigue lenses

Hi Guys,

I'm recently offer Eyezen for antifatigue & Bluelight, when inquiring for new lens. They offer because i spend most time on digital screens, mentioned there is an change in degree over at the lower part of the lens.

Anyone has used such lens before ? And how's is it different from normal Single Vision lens.

I'm 32, nearsighted around 300+ abit on both sides, with astigmatism. Have always used Single Vision lens with only the current using added reflect Blue light. (Cheap housebrand type)

Hi bro,

It all depends on how confident the shop is in fitting progressive lenses. Mvision has a compatible lens to Varilux Physio 3.0.

Supreme 1.67
HMC $630
Asahi HEV(Blue) filter UV420 $750
Transition HMC $880

Good thing about Mvision lenses is they are of Zeiss quality but at much affordable price point. If you're worried about the lens compatibility, drop by our Toa Payoh branch for our Progressive Money Back Guarantee.
