1) Can I get a price check on 1.67 Asahi UV3G?

2) What do you think about Zoff's polarized lenses? They are apparently from VivoOptics (www dot vivooptics dot com)

Thanks!

Most progressive for the lenses will cost you minimally over 300 for the average ones. Anything below that honestly itís a hit or miss. Some individuals can work with those whereas others(majority from my experience) donít fancy them.
Reason due to the quality,clarity,distortion at the side of the lenses. My advice is to invest in a 400-500 above lens and likely you will got with a 1.6 index lens will will cost 600?
You can consider mr eyewear at West Mall.

Hey there!
Why not? As Long as there is business to make, most shops would surely accept your frame!
Do take note that itís your own frame and if itís Been awhile, sometimes thereís a chance the frame may break which inserting/removing the lenses.(chances are Low but still have to let you know).

Daily washing maybe plastic kind? Or those without screws e.g. Markus t, Lindberg, ic Berlin. These kinda style(cost is about 500 onwards).

Alamak!!
Also yes itís possible but tough part is finding a frame that can fit your lenses. Highly likely have to size down your lenses, and that might affect your focal point too. If high power maybe not recommended...

I suggest remake a new pair.

Actually thats my main worry.
I have 2 specs lenses to make...and the frames r kinda ex.
ē Moscot &
ē Oliver Peoples.

i'm doing progressive lenses. so might cost me over $2k for high index 1.7
for 2 frames.


Not sure those neighbourhood optical shops will handle with care.
