Progressives or single vision reading?


Progressives starts at 380 onwards, single vision from 70 onwards for the lenses.

Hello, what is the average price range I need to look at for presbyopia glasses? Thanks in advance!

Hello all, does anyone know which shop have Nike spectacles? My current unknown brand already 4 years I think itís time to check and get new lenses. Because I felt my I notice when Iím looking straight and both my eye balls is looking downwards. Sometimes people think that Iím sleeping. Also Iíve been to a few shops but most donít have Nike. Or anyone other brand recommended?

Hi bro,

A pair of 1.50 index progressive lens with basic design starts from $180.

These lenses are customisable to suit your lifestyle & requirement (E.g. more distance / more reading or balanced)

Depending on your needs , you can also choose to top up & have Add-ons like:
  • Thinner lenses
  • Wider Angle lenses
  • Colour changing lenses (E.g. Transitions, Photochromic)
  • HEV Light (Blue) Filter (E.g. Asahi-Lite UV3G, Tokai Lutina)

Thank you. Reading up on the differences between progressives and single vision.

I made a pair of progressive lens for my presbyopia of 100 degrees. Being using those cheap reading glasses for all these years. My optician recommended me 125 degrees instead. Not shortsighted as I had lasik done. So normal vision plus presbyopia 125 degrees for near vision reading.

Started wearing for a few days and canít get used to it. Feeling giddy if I wear it for a long time.

Is this your first time wear progressives?
Apart from the 125 for near vision at the bottom, is there any distance power at the TOP or totally 0?
Any idea what brand of lenses are those?
Do you have the card which states which lens is it?

I feel both of them are fine. But a number sunglasses usually use zeiss lenses for their lens.

Thanks. When I did a test, they say I 125 for both eyes. Not really sure what it means. Haha.. but I just sort of remember like that..

Question

They actually do not lose out to single vision.

The downside to anti fatigue is that there is a limit to the addition/power reduction at the bottom which currently stands at +1.35(Hoya sync 3).
The distortion at the sides are lesser than a progressive so itís really comfortable. However once you hit about 45 onwards, and your lao hua/presbyopia/reading power increases above the +1.50 mark. The anti fatigue lenses will not work as well as it used too.
This is based on my fitting experience and might differ from how other practitioner fit over here thus correct me if I am wrong in any way. Cheers and hope this helps!
May I know how are the Essilor Eyezen with Sapphire coating and BlueCapture compared to the hoya syn 3?

Eyezen Sapphire Boost+ Blue cap has an addition power of +0.40/0.60/0.8/1.1D.
Those figures are the ones that are at the lower segment of your lenses to help u read/relax your eyes when looking at near stuff.

Sync 3 is +0.6/+0.9/+1.35.
Thus the range is wider. Say a 40 year old individual might prefer sync 3 than eyezen SB+ due to the addition power of +1.35.

Another difference is ESB+ is using Blue light Absorb lenses which reduces the amount of yellowish hue on the lenses whereas Sync 3 is using Blue light reflect which has the yellowish Hue.

I for one prefer the yellowish hue but that depends on personal preference of the others!

Right Eye: Myopia -1.25 Astig -1.00 @ an angle of 180
Left Eye:Myopia -2.75 Astig -0.50 @ an angle of 30

Pupil Height: maybe progressive/anti fatigue thats your focal point too
For high powered individuals even Single vision sometimes is better to have a focal point as 1mm-2mm change in the height might cause prismatic effect. E.g. Will not be as clear/dizzy.

Your Pupillary distance/PD is 62mm. Distance between both eye.
