I would like to know which shop too, thanks.

Bro, check your PM. Do call to ask for the price on the brand you want. What I was given is 30% off RRP.

Paiseh, don't frequent this thread much.

Ah I see! Ok, if you prefer wider view I would recommend hoya mystyle profile/V+ either 1,
Essilor Xtrack, or zeiss superb or individual 2.

You would realise that all these are the more common Brand’s in the market and honestly that are Brand’s that cost lesser and some might claim it works better. But ultimately it’s all for the consumer and how they feel. Some will feel the slightly cheaper lenses are better while others would prefer those Brand’s that I mentioned.

Listen to your practitioner recommendation and if you are comfortable, then go for it. Cheers!

P.s these lenses cost minimally 700+++ but based on my fitting experiences, they work well.

Hi GANGSTERKIA, would like your advice on the different type of lens brand. In your opinion, which brand or model lens is better for progressive lens whereby i can ask for more reading area for Laptop distance and reading book distance?

I am currently using essilor (varilux) progresssive lens. But after 2 years, the lens itself shown a lot of uniform lines when i shine it against light even thou i only use those cloth that is for cleaning spectacles. I have attached the photo as shown.

Oof, thst looks like crazing of the lenses. Do you wash your spectacle cloth too?

I would recommend hoya mystyle series if you want all to be good. But honestly progressives usually cater to 2 good viewing distance. Intermediate zone is always smaller compared to the office lens. However this is also affected by your frame size too.

Yes, i do wash my spectacles cloth. I get a few piece from the shop when i bought the current spectacle. It only appears when it is near to 2 years time. That is why i was wondering whether is it worth it to use branded progressive lens that is much more expensive than those normal lens (e.g like owndays shop progressive lens)

May i know roughly how much is the price for hoya mystyle series for the following? Thanks.

index = 1.67
Progressive Lens with Blue light protection
R: 750 - 100 x 62
L: 600 - 300 x 156
ADD +150
PD: 74

Will check for you and let you know when I am back tomorrow..

I believe things like this happenening could also due to other factor as my colleagues one or my cx can last for 4-5 years with no such issue.

Though some even within 6months we can see too..

Thank you very much. Within 6 months is having this problem? does it even warrant a warranty claim?

Nope, yours looks like wear and tear .. if it’s just using optical cloth and washing it constantly, not so often these situation occurs haha.
As mentioned earlier that there could be other factors that caused these.

does that means the lens inside originally is like that until it is multi coated? :D

Welcome! It will work well... but once you hit the 42/43 range.. get ready to switch to progressives haha

Can drag a few more years? Dont wish to wear progressive so soon. You think 45 years old or later switch ok?
