Hi!

Thx for the reply!
I just researched and found that the Hoya full control has still using the blue control technology which is a blue light filter coating on the lens whereas for the blueguard,it is a kind of "newer" technology where the filtering is incorporated into the lenses which is supposed to produce less blueish reflection?
I believe is lesser of the yellowish hue apart from reflection.
Ultimately you have to decide if you need the anti-bacterial.
the main qualities you need would be the multi coat and blue light filter.

Hi there, by Any chance is the condition M.gravis?

also it’s better to look for a more specialised optometrist for that.
1 that I can think off hand would be to look for kelvin at eyewear optics. But do make an appt first before heading down.
He has vast experience in working with patients requiring prismatic correction/aid.
Thanks Gangster bro for your quick reply.
It's Graves Eye disease. 😔

I'll have a word with Kelvin once appointment is made.
Thanks again 🙏

Hi sirs,

I am currently using the ownsday progressive lens ( not the most expensive one) and I may need a upgrade because I keep having to adjust my specs to see clearly.

I bringing my own frame. How does ownsday progressive prestige gold at $498 vs essilor physio lens at $770?

Or anyone can help recommend me some other models. On a budget here.

Would rather you use the Essilor ones. Owndays progressives have time and time proven they are sub par. Although the cost is low, no point wearing something that gives you a headache. A progressive lens is supposed to help you see better and make your life more comfortable. Many other alternatives to Owndays progressives.

If Essilor physio is 700$
For that price point which other brand should I be going for?

Hi, Physio 3.0 is a good lens design for progressive lenses. It should have a wider reading zone, lesser peripheral distortions and clearer distance vision for you.
Another alternative you can consider is the Hoya lifestyle 3 but Physio will be more affordable.

hi, single lens
Based on your prescription, you can look towards 1.6,1.67 index lenses. The lenses should set you back about 250-300 for 1.67 depending on which brand of lenses you get. That leaves you about 200 for frame. But if you choose a really basic quality high index lens, it will be about 140 and you have 360 budget for your frame.

Hey guys, need some advice. I have a pair of Lindberg acetate inner rim. However, they are extremely uncomfortable to wear for me. The left hook is constantly coming up from my ear and i tried adjusting it at Jamco which I purchased from but it is still an issue. The left lens also always seems higher than the right side and gives me a headache. When i walk with the lindberg on, it also seems to be moving up and down, not sure if its because it is too light.

Is anyone else facing such issues with their Lindberg? I never had such issues with my other spectacles.

Personally, I don't have such or much issue with all mine Lindberg frames except the recent tintatium frame, as it is not sturdy and I am on progressive lens, I returned at least 3-4 times to get it adjusted. Guess my left eye is sensitive. Strange thing is that it was ok when I left the shop but when I started wearing for long or driving, the discomfort set in.

Perhaps you need to return and tell them more precisely the issue and re-adjust it? Thanks.

Yeah, similar issue that I face as well. It is fine at the shop but after wearing for awhile then i'll find out issues with it. Probably have to make a trip back to the store then.

I sense your frustration and looks like re-visit to the optical shop seems inevitable. Try to go back to the same staff who had adjusted your frame as he or she knows what had adjusted. After adjusting, just go to the coffeeshop to have a cup of drink, stay slightly longer at the vicinity says 30-40 mins and observe how does it go. Wish you well.

Hi there, any recommendation for a specs within 300-400 budget.

30 yo, power around 2.50-3.50 for left and right.

looking for a blue filter type lens due to long hours in front of the screen (pc/phone). Perhaps anti fatigue lenses?

Are raybans within this range with the budget. Don't mind travelling to get the glasses.

Possible if you are not using the popular lens brands. E.g Kodak Anti fatigue lens with a decent rayban frame. 400-450 should be possible.

Hi, additionally just to check, when removing your glasses, do you usually use one hand to remove or both?

Any difference for pentax or kodak against zeiss & essilor.
Went to spex in bishan and was offered 168 for pentax inclusive of frame.

Was wondering whether there's significant diff between pentax against hoya/zeiss/essilor for office use.

Also, not too sure whether single vision with blue filter or digital/anti fatigue lenses are more suitable for my usage.

30 yo, power around 2.50-3.50 for left and right

Seems like 1.50 Pentax lens and frame. Very cheap deal. Difference is in terms of clarity of the lens and quality of the lens multicoating. Pentax is a sub/sister brand to Hoya.
I suggest if you are going budget then single vision w/blue filter will do fine. But if you intend to get a better lens and to relax your eye muscles more then you can consider antifatigue/digital.
