Hello,

I intend to get a pair of spectacles

Iím 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

A little tough. Your lenses will set you back quite abit because of the high power. IC berlin RRP $600 onwards usually. After discount and inclusive of your lenses - again, depending on what grade of lenses, with/without blue protect lenses, progressive lenses/digital lenses. However, due to the nature of the frame, i wouldnt recommend IC berlin because your lenses would be pretty thick even with the thinnest lenses. Not too sure about lindberg but price definitely higher. i would usually recommend a smaller plastic frame as the lens thickness wouldnt be too obvious.

800 plus for ICB and lens might be possible. Lindberg only if you raise your Budget to 900ish safer.

Without discount a Lindberg frame + 1.67/1.74 for your frame would cost almost 1k or even exceed slightly..

But factor in discounts and all should be possible.

Take note you are paying this price to get the free upgrade to the next tier.

Any brand recommendations for frames suitable for higher power? I see lindberg titanium frames look even slimmer/thinner than ic berlin's.

Lindberg has different series, for high power individuals, their titanium air rim series would be good. But if you find it small, can look towards their acetanium series whereby the lens thickness can be more hidden by the thickness of the frame.

There are actually many many frames out in the market that are small. Usually higher power glasses, should be recommended with frames that are smaller so you can reduce the myopic rings/diminishing effect.
You can even look towards the bespoke 3D printed frames which can fit your face well and even be adjusted to make the lenses less thick!
Cost of such frames about 500? Cheaper than Lindberg and icb.

But good frames are not just Lindberg and ICB, itís just that some of us here either try them before or so, so we just recommend.

Thanks for your responses guys, I’m interested in the acetanium frame from Lindberg so I have to up my budget

As for lens, I am open to suggestions as well , I have no brand preferences and I will use my spectacles mostly to do work on the PC.

Guess a basic lens from hoya, essilor or zeiss will do the trick. Also maybe add on their blue light filter, should be better.

Hi all,

Looking for lens/frame recommendations because my zoff frame broke thrice in 3 months.. I'm not too sure of my prescription, but I know that its not anything too serious. around 200-300 each eye? Budget will be around 300, but willing to increase to 400-500 if it is more value for money. I am quite happy with my zoff lens, but its just that the frame keeps breaking. However I am open to better ones.

Also, I stay around eunos if it helps.

ID is and still is the second highest tier lenses in hoya progressive lens right now, though it has been rename to mystyle profile.
As what user gardens3b mentioned, I do find it strange your astigmatism has changed like this. I also would recommend another second opinion.

Based on prescription wise, we see a difference mainly on the right eye, apart from the addition/laohua power of +0.25 more which is pretty normal.

I am not so sure how good is their prestige series but itís not easy to match the comfort of the hoya ID/mystyle profile.

As I mentioned earlier too, frame size changes, the corridor given to you and other factors might affect. Go for the second opinion bro!
Thanks.
Any good place to look for Hoya lenses?
Near Buona Vista and can travel a bit.

Hi, I'm clueless about spectacles and, need helps with store recommendations for NS enlistment. I haven't yet do eye check up, my eyesight should be around 1000 degrees, -10.00 as the current spectacles I'm wearing is 800 degrees, -8.00.

Should I go Zoff, Owndays or neighborhood spectacle shops as I need it fast like within a month.

prease hwelp, I'm berry gong gong as I got chopped carrot before.
