Switch to comfort 3.0? Or hoya dynamic premium. Evershine optical at TPY might be an option you can look at.

Comfort is cheaper. It is under essilor, so lens design is similar, just that reading zone smaller, intermediate zone smaller and distance slightly poorer clarity.

Better in which aspect?

Also how Long have you worn the x design and the physio each?

440 for comfort physio is 5++. However that is based on 1.50 index.

There are alternatives like Kodak, stellify, Pentax.

I just made one specs with about 150 to 250 degrees. I added Blue lens + transition lens + oakley frame ($230) total amounted to $500. Is it a decent price?

will scratch the frames or become very heavy?

wouldnt scratch as it is some distance away from your spectacle lenses. But yes, will be heavier and sometimes not so comfortable. If you prefer a personalised sunglass/shades, it would be best. can consider slight yellow tint for night driving if not normal brown/gray/green shade for daytime driving :)

Sigh RB broke for the 2nd time, used it for more than 2 years now. Sent RB an email to check if they have spares.

In the meantime with a budget of $450-500 what brands should I be looking out for? Want something that can last longer than this:X

Lenses preferably with blue reflect/cut coating, degree is around 350 both sides

Hi GANGSTERKIA, any recommendation for night driving/night vision?
degree is quite low, around 100+ (excluding astig).
budget around 300-500 with frame. please recommended both frame and lens.

thanks!!

good price. what brand of lenses did you get?

The shop said currently Hoya having promotion and compared the price with other lens. This is cheaper. But hopefully will be ok. Collecting this coming Sat.

Hmm, I think zeiss drive safelenses will do fine or Hoya enroute pro. Your degree isint too high so lenses should be about 200. So you got about 100-300 for a frame. I think it’s very workable. Frame I not too sure. It’s really have to see which is to your liking. But with 300 as budget I think you have quite a nice range.
