Do you mind letting us know what is your age right now? When did you do your lasik? Also did the deterioration of your vision only started during CB period. I.e March onwards?

Hi all. any recommendation for spec while using com? I went for lasik previously and had perfect eyesight but the stayhome thing really ruin my vision and my eyesight are getting worse. Any recommendation for spectacles while using computer?

Did they mention what progressive was that? Which tier or the name? Zeiss light? Zeiss light 3D?
No.. Not really. I didn't really ask. I would assume it's the most basic one? Zeiss light and Zeiss light 3D... I think the latter is the better one?

Based on the price, it seems like the light or light 3d basic series.

Question

I suggest you either use a double aspheric lens that will reduce the distortion significantly but only for distance or, anti fatigue lenses which will help in relaxing eye muscle when looking at near for Long hours BUT itís not double aspheric...
What's the difference and advantages of double-aspheric lens? Is it the same as single-vision lenses?

Check out these articles

https://www.2020mag.com/article/asph...spheric-lenses

https://www.2020mag.com/ce/double-as...ree-form-D5313



In short, Lesser peripheral distortion, better clarity and thinner lenses. They are still counted as Single Vision as its only for one viewing distance.

Individuals with high prescriptions are usually encouraged to use DAL.

If you want lenses that has blue light filter and can even Turn Dark in the car,
I suggest 1.67 Hoya Sync 3 +Sensity dark+blue control.

Uh, my current ones are cheap ones I got to get myself through NS. They're okay for what they are but are really scratched up and a deep cut on the left lens so I was thinking of replacing them.

Previously I using some Crizal lenses cuz my local optometrist carried them but after reading this thread for a bit, I see a lot of people commenting that they're not very good - they weren't very cheap either. So I'm at a loss for how to proceed.
hi feel free to pm me if u need to buy lenses. i can give 50-100 discount rates for any preffered lenses u buying. cheers..

Owndays prescription:
Could not post image.
Had new lenses done at Owndays last year. Did not wear it and this year tried to use it but found out that focus for reading/using computer screen is not good.. not straight... I have to lower my eyes...

Has to revert to previous glasses that I have used for 2+ years.

Not sure whatís the issue? Owndays progressive not suitable?
I am looking this year to do another set of progressive lenses...

Current prescription (Hoya)
Could not post image

Thanks for all advice

I just came across the brand ic! Berlin today while looking for frames. I was kinda hunting for titanium frames when a shop recommended me this, although it is not titanium. The one I saw is Toru N, and it's metal but with rubberised temple ends (and it's really really light). I would like to ask, from anyone who uses ic Berlin on these:

1) are they long lasting? I am very careful with my frames and hope for them to last 4 to 5 years? Thus, can it last or would it suffer discoloration or paint chipping etc? Would the rubber crack easily? (like some bros here, I just bring it into my shower and wash it with soap water and use tissue to wipe the frames).

2) the materials looks really flimsy although the sales person assured me it's hard to break and show me how he bends it and still not break. Just wanted to know also if the shape would run/changes over time (i.e, becomes loose or not so tight fitting around your head to hold it in place).

3) any other cons or feedback people may have to suggest not buying it. Been trying to search for reviews on Google but not much on it. So any experiences or recommendation from existing users here would be very much appreciated.


Thank you in advance..
