    I'm curious now. These are marketed as night driving lenses, but would they also help people with cataracts in daytime since they reduce glare?

    Turns out I'm used to looking more to the right because it feels more comfortable without correction. It's a habit I acquired to compensate for my phoria. It's funny I realize this just now because...

    I've had these for a week now. I'm pretty happy but the add portion in the left lens is very narrow, probably because of my base in prism. I had to decenter the left PD 0.5mm, hopefully that didn't...

    I'm still wondering though: does Blue Control get dirty more quickly? I'm going to order new lenses tomorrow and I'm thinking 10% rose would be a good alternative.

    Turns out they've been cleaning them with Windex instead of the sprays I gave them... The oleophobic coating is most likely gone.

    Hoya lenses getting dirty quickly?

    I sold my grandparents a new pair a few months ago. They're complaining the lenses are getting dirty quickly, much more quickly than their previous pair (don't know the brand). One pair has Super...

    Thanks. I couldn't find that exact marking unfortunately. So far I only know that 1 means it's CR-39. "A" may stand for Amplitude but the only markings on that list are either just "A" (long...

    Hoya progressives with "AC1" engraving?

    I have a client whose previous progressives have the engraving "AC1". All I know is they're from Hoya (Europe). Does anyone know which progressives they are exactly?

    Well it was just a guess. Our software does predetermine the blank size based on the PD and height I order. That would change how the lenses are cut.

    I can't. But I'm pretty sure the lab just uses the center of the lens blank and that physical point will be located at the OC I put in.

    Exactly. That's how all orders are done where I work. So even though the PD doesn't matter I'd still expect a different cut depending on the PD I input.

    Do you experience any swim effect or peripheral distortion with the Hoya's?

    Also, how old are you? Should I consider the 0.90 sync (edit: 0.95 here) instead of the 0.57?

    CR-39 remains better with no AR. Then again I don't see why AR and scratch resistance shouldn't be standard either. How much more does AR add to manufacturing cost anyway?

    I can't find any US equivalent when searching for Hoya night driving lenses. Looks like it's only available in Europe and Australia.

    What is the minimum center/edge thickness for full rim frames? If it's 2mm, then 1.6 lenses in plano or low plus powers would probably not be any lighter. I have a pair with round 1.6 lenses (+0.25)...

    Note that the weight difference is not as big for plus lenses. For +2.00, 1.6 seems to be only about 8-10% lighter while for -2.00 it's closer to 20%.

    I'm surprised though that plano lenses and...
