Honestly, the blue light filter lenses with the yellowish hue is the best way to reduce eye strain.

Other lenses that does similar blue light absorbing and all also does their job BUT it doesnt reduce the eye strain as much as the yellowish hue lenses.

However i understand many individuals not fancying the yellowish hue thus you can always settle for the latter.

Itís not just specs hut, but many places also got.
1.6 index 950.. probably precision plus Asiana?
You can either get the office lens, free upgrade to precision superb(even better tier progressives).

Thanks for the reply. You mean other shop if buy office lens only, will free upgrade to precision superb? And the sales informed me office lens not suitable for driving. Not really understand what is function of office lens. I m wondering why must have 2 specs or either to just have Shamir Autograph for progressive lens for my myopia n 老花 then add on blue coat.

Alright, firstly this is a ''almost'' islandwide zeiss promo. Almost because maybe some shops ''dont'' promote this promotion.

You can ONLY CHOOSE ONE(pardon the caps. just need to highlight it)
1)Free Photofusion on any lenses
2)Free design upgrade (only 1 level up)e.g. Precision Plus-->Precision Superb
Precision superb-->Individual 2
3)Purchase Zeiss progressive lens, you get an office lens
4)If you purchase myopia control zeiss lenses, you get a pair of single vision lens with blueprotect
5)If you purchase a digital lens, you get a single vision lens with blueprotect

If shops don't want to mention about the other promos, its understandable as sales and all are involve.

Office lenses are lenses that as the name suggests, to be used only in the office/desk settings. It has close to no Distance vision vision(not entirely).
The lens is designed in a way such that if you look straight, your intermediate distance(e.g. computer/desktop) distance will be clear, and if you roll your eyes down, then your reading will be clear. But if you are looking to see distance e.g. driving Then the progressive lenses will be better for you as progressive will allow you to see distance,intermediate and near. Just that for progressive lenses, intermediate zone vision will not be as WIDE as an Office lens.

Hi, I would like to get advice on getting new lens.
I went to a store to try a sample of the new Crizal Blue Capture UV out to see for myself and it didn't really seem to change how my phone's screen looks.
With the old digital lens I could see a visible reduction of blue light but it had the side effect of making white look yellowish.

Any advice on the prescription I should get? I'm around -5 on my worst eye and the optician recommended me to get Transitions Signature + blue capture at 1.74 for 680.
Based on your prescription, I am assuming/hoping your astig(shan guang) is under -2. Then actually 1.67 might be more than enough. I personally feel 1.74 is abit overkill.

If you dont like the Bluecapture, then go with Prevencia which has the yellowish hue. I personally am a strong supporter of the yellowish hue, i feel it makes it more comfortable for me.

May i also ask how old are you at the moment?

Yes Sir! If its mainly for monitors and looking at near documents e.g. contracts and all, office lens would be very suitable.

I'm 25. I'm not that big of a fan of the yellowish hue to be honest, which was why I was interested in the Blue capture, but it doesn't seem to do anything when I tried a pair without prescription.

I was hoping to get some advice from people who've either used that or similar offerings like Lumina on whether it is worth it. The optician seemed to be trying really hard to upsell me on expensive prescriptions.

Honestly speaking,
Lutina/bluecap/blue zero all are similar.
All 3 products works on blue absorb. If you find blue cap not working so well, there is a higher possibility you will feel the same for the others.

But ultimately itís all subjective and at times placebo. The only one to allow you to feel more comfortable/reduced glare is the ones with yellowish hue or like what the optometrist shirui mentioned in the video that nakedtoe shared.

Hopefully lutina will give you the visual comfort!
Though itís unfortunate that someone is trying to up sell you.😅 hopefully the next person wonít do the same. Eyezone over here has more experience with tokai lutina.
