As long as your frame is in good condition, you should be fine but keep in mind that as plastic gets older it becomes more brittle. For 50 euros, for a thin lens with anti reflection coating, that’s fair.I've had a cheap pair of Specsavers frames for a while and been mostly happy even though I didn't add any sort of extra treatment to the lenses. Been experiencing that they've gotten dirty fairly easy though and not been supereasy to clean. My dog have now chewed on them and I guess it's time for an upgrade.
I'm thinking of using my old pair of Moscot Lemtosh sunglasses as primary glasses, Specsavers can insert normal lenses for 50 euros. Is this something you would recommend doing or what advice do you have?
I think that I will only get their cheapest lens with no extras for 50 euros.As long as your frame is in good condition, you should be fine but keep in mind that as plastic gets older it becomes more brittle. For 50 euros, for a thin lens with anti reflection coating, that’s fair.
Anti reflection is a must. Without it, it looks distasteful. End of story.I think that I will only get their cheapest lens with no extras for 50 euros.
Would you recommend anti reflection or durability coating or something else for them? And would even Specsavers lens be something to go for?
I realize it might be skewed to use a cheap lens for a 300 euro frame, but you know being a student and all...
Yes. Without antireflection coating you will see starbursts around lights which is very distracting, even if you’re not sensitive to light. Also, when people look at you, it looks ridiculous without it. It looks cheap and unprofessional. Anti-reflection coating should and is basic in any reputable Optical. If anti-reflection coating is an option, you’re already getting ripped off.Isn't AR also much better for your eyes and visibility? Especially when driving or using comps
Clip-on have their pros and cons. On one hand, they are convenient and relatively inexpensive (compared to a whole new set). On the other hand, depending on the frame that it is going onto, sometimes it looks terrible and can add significant weight. Having a dedicated set of prescription sunglasses is a great choice, but you also have to keep in mind that you need to carry it with you everywhere that you go.Thank you. This is exactly what I want to hear.
Any advice on the clip-ons for Lemtosh (Cliptosh)? Better to have a separate pair of shades?
Tried this frame with tinted / photochrome lenses before and immediately returned it. I find the look very difficult to pull off and poser-ish if you are not a celebrity.Anyone have experience with lightly tinted lenses? So, not things such as sunglasses, but lenses that are tinted for fashionable effect.
