Hi there. There is a 1.8 and a 1.9 index for glass lenses. Do take note glass lenses are heavier than the normal plastics. Though they are more scratch resistant.
What the shops mentioned to you are all right. Zeiss and essilor have glasses lenses.

For zeiss, they have 4 different indexes, And their prices are listed beside(RRP)
1.6 295
1.7 375
1.8 600
1.9 725

Essilor
1.70 150 If the supplier has no local stock it will cost 260
1.80 290 If the supplier has no local stock it will cost 410.

These prices are purely for single vision lenses. If you need for progressive, let me know again.
Cheers!
Thanks bro! appreciate it. How about Hoying? you heard this brand before?

Hello any recommendations where to make spectacles. (Lens and frame)

i made previously at Owndays ... please recommend an alternative with similar or cheaper pricing. I really dont want to go owndays again lol.

(Service personnel is day dreaming plus the blue lens wore out in just two months.)
Wah that bad for Owndays? Always see crowd and they open more branch at alot of places

Question

Any good (brand) recommendations for full titanium frame? Have currently using one and enjoying the benefits that I can wash the glasses frequently without any part of the frame rusting(oxidizing), e.g. even the small screws around the nose bridge?

Looking forward to making a new pair of glasses and hoping to have more choices in term of full titanium frame...

How much are Lindberg frames (their full titanium series)?
Currently using a pair of glasses from [dun], lasted decently for 6 years.
I wash my glasses around weekly & I do not dry the rim area (I only dry the legs) after washing. So Iím glad my existing pair lasted as Long as they did. Paid around $400 for the frame a Long time ago.

If Lindberg is much more expensive seems like Iíll stick with [dun] next time.

Starting to consider a new pair because the coating on my lenses gg already...

Dun is around 300-400. Lindberg is x2 of the price.

But Lindberg is much more comfortable. Wonít oxidise, lifetime replacement of nosepad and temple tips.
I would go for Lindberg anytime any day hahaha..go get your first pair.. probably wonít regret, and if you prefer light and comfortable, check out their NOW or rim series. Can check from their website.

sorry , above my budget/I'd rather throw the cash into the lenses.

Maybe I rephrase my question to be more honest bah, i.e. any full Ti frames below $400? Wasn't there a Seiko Titanium frame series or something?

Charmant and Seiko are good. Price range 160 onwards!

Light, titanium and looks good too. But for charmant maybe look towards the blue label series.

Can i ask the bros out here which are the shops in sg which are offering zeiss and essilor lenses cheaper than the competitor our there? Theyíre the best lenses based on my research. Think iím looking into the Crizal Prevencia and Zeiss duravision blue protect. If you guys have better alternative can recommend me too.

I have myopia and astigmatism.
Myopia = -300 & -450 (stopped increasing for years)
Astigmatism = -100 & -125 (keep increasing over the years)


I have experience with crizal lens and i find it not bad with the features. Bought it at msia and unable to visit due to covid.

My last pair of specs are with owndays and i donít think their lens are good.

I need a pair of spec with lenses with great anti blue light as iím looking at pc alot.


Thank you all bros and sis in advanced .

Give lindberg a try
No press mark on nose, i wash daily for past 6mths no issue.
I'm wearing the air titanium rim, temple is very thin so it will minimize any irritation from hair or skin problem. I don't think you can totally avoid this on thicker frames.

Only complain i have is i can't wear the spectacle on one hand
