Town, I would recommend KJ optometrists(plaza sing). And then remember to make an appointment. They should be able to help you well!

Progressives Newbee

Hi,

I am 45 and starting to struggle with near vision. I have had glasses for astigmatism and distance vision for many years, so the optician advised that I now need progressives.
Does anyone have experience with Owndays premium progressives? Are they any good? They are much cheaper than the premium brands, so thinking they could be good for my first foray into progressives.
Alternatively, where is a good place to pick up Varilux or similar? I am in the Bukit Timah area, so anywhere near me would be great.

Thanks so much!

Bukit Timah, what about mee mee optics? Reliable, professional and many years in that area. Very established! At Bukit Timah plaza.

Yes! Pretty reasonable!

Hi all, I was quoted SGD 300 for ray ban clubmaster spectacles (not sunglass) with blu lens, power around 200. May I check if this is reasonable?

Evoblue is good enough if you are looking for something affordable. Any preferred location around spore?

not particular about the location, as I'm located centrally

was quoted 110-125 for generic lens and 140 for the kodak, is that pricing alright or can I find even better priced ones.

any particular edge the kodak have over the generic ones, apart from branding

Not really TBH, but if you choose brands like zeiss or hoya you would probably see a difference.

Again, to individuals with high tolerance to clarity/distortion, most lenses would be fine e.g. me.
And vice-Versa there are others that have low tolerance thus they need to use better lenses!

Either do the hoya dynamic summit free upgrade to dynamic premium or zeiss precision pure upgrade to precision plus/superb!

Both are comfortable enough to last you 2-3 years about there..

The cost might be steeper steep but itís a good investment for the following years..

Hello,

I intend to get a pair of spectacles

I’m near sighted (800 both eyes) and have astigmatism as well

Budget is 800+, would that be sufficient to get decent lens + an Ic Berlin frame?

Or would it be better for me to pay more to get lindberg instead

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated
