Is there any Budget for you? The max you can stretch to?

400 plus degree you can consider 1.5/1.6 index and I would recommend something that cost around 450-500. If you want something more comfortable then likely 600-700, but it will be really comfortable.

Need some recommendations, looking around for new pair of specs.

Currently, owned a pair from Owndays. Does anyone have any bad experiences with Lenskart and Zoff? power is near 800ish budget-wise want to keep it near 300/400ish or even lower ...

It is possible. but the lenses definitely cant be the higher quality with better coating.. frame wise cant be too expensive as well.

Comfort 3.0 is a good lens to start off with! You can use that. Or Hoya has a promo still, their dynamic summit free upgrade to dynamic premium. Similar price range

Smile Near-range on progressives not big enough

Hi,

I am 41 and very new to wearing glasses. My presbyopia finally bothered me enough to get a pair of eyeglasses a month ago. At that point I had trouble making out the date/day on my wrist watch unless I extend out my arm a considerable distance out. Reading the fine-print ingredients lists on medicine/supplement bottles was impossible or challenging. Optician determined ADD is +1 both eyes and I have 'slight' astigmatism.

Currently on Hoya Dynamic Premium lenses. I find it pretty good in the sense I can use it for daily to the point I forget I am wearing glasses now. I got used to it within a day.

What it lacks is when I do deskwork that is mostly computer screen work. I find myself tilting my head upwards too much and rotating left to right to read the on-screen text properly. It also bothers me that only part (about 2/3rd's at most of a 15.6" laptop screen) is sharp while the other parts get blurred a bit. Optician has already made nosepad position adjustments based on my feedback on the above.

Now, I am wondering if I should get a office progressive lens (Hoya Worksyle, Zeiss Officelens) to overcome this usage shortcoming, or just put that money into a better progressive lens (Hoya Lifestyle V+, Zeiss Superb) that is marketed to have wider clear areas for near-mid ranges. I prefer not carry more than one pair of glasses with me unless I really have to.

Any forumers that had been in my situation: love to hear your experience and suggestions on what to do (or to do nothing).

Workstyle ROOM is good enough. Trust me, donít take workstyle desk. The range is too short. With room it can even extend to slightly further distance too e.g. someone standing a metre behind your desktop or so.

Alternatively, if there is ample space and height, you can lower your screen so it goes within your reading zone.(cost efficient). Though I would recommend an office lens instead still. A better progressive tier(lifestyle v+,superb,mystyle profile,x-design) no doubt would improve the field of view but still the intermediate zone would not best an office lens.
