Any distortion at the sides for your Mvision progressive lens?

Sorry just saw your msg.

Yes there is..

I think i might take a while to get used to it. Cos the distortion is quite bad. Just a bit off center only it's starts to blur.

Hi bro, Supreme should be pretty wide in angle.
Maybe drop by our Toa Payoh branch, I'll see if i can adjust to help you see better

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to get a pair of sunglasses. Budget is low, around $100-$150. Wondering if it makes sense to buy a cheap sunglass (for the frame) and replace the lens with a better one (maybe Hoya Eyeveil 3 with prescription etc)?

Or would it be better to buy some branded sunglass and have them change to prescription lenses for me?

Any other reasonable sunglass lens brand you would recommend?

Hi, the 100-150 Budget is just for the frame only right and not the whole product?

S$100-S$150 for the lens.

Frame I'm thinking to either reuse old spectacle lens, or buy a pair of cheap sunglasses (for the frame)

Open to suggestions or alternatives. Exploring options, but hope not to spend excessively.

Price range is around 450 onwards to 600.(just for the frame).Thomson Plaza is one place you can look into, or else there are also other shops that sells such brand too!

Thanks, do you know the price range of the 2 brands and where to try them? (Thomson Plaza)?

For Hoya (Nupolar), Crizal (Xperio), and Zeiss polarised sunglass lenses, any idea how much these lenses typically cost?

Looking for single vision, 1.5

Ahhhh, then its the screws problem already. Recently replaced the nosepad arm scews. Nosepads are original. I think its hard to get original screws.

Couldnt solve the problem. Probably have to throw the whole spec away. I guess in future just buy the cheapest frame and lenses to go. Whats the point of buying so expensive pair when you end up with parts that cant be replaced with originals.
