I'll be making my first pair of progressive lense. I heard about this new technology called Sync III and it will have lower discomfort compared to progressive.

I have short sightedness around 280 degree per eye.
I remember I went to a shop to enquire the auntie keep phycho me to use their house brand. "Japan design but local made" she said. I rolled my eyes...

Any recommendation for lenses that are ok but better than house brand?
Anyone can advise a good shop and optician to help me.

Thank you.

Sync 3 is not really a progressive lens. it is an anti fatigue/digital lens sort of . midway between normal single vision lenses and progressives.
which area are you looking at?

Hello,

I'm looking to purchase a new set of prescription glasses.
However, I'm trying to avoid having the tinted yellow effect (I believe the term used in this thread is "blue light reflect")

I've did some research and it seems like

Crizal is offering such lenses ("blue light absorb")
https://www.essilor.com.sg/products/...lue-uv-capture

May I know if there are other brands that offer a similar feature?

If itís gonna be your first pair, probably get a lens that is more above average.
Towards that age range, I will assume your presbyopia would be around +1.75 thus a basic lens might cause you to feel uncomfortable with the peripheral distortion.
