    Howdy / New Member / Looking for Zeiss Lens advice.........

    Just a " customer " not in the Industry so thought I would seek some advice ( Thanks Google )

    I am a Progressive guy. Been with Essilor in the past.
    Current eyewear..... Varilux / Crizal / Trans XA Green / Green Flash mirror
    Need new Rx and wanting to go Zeiss ( I heard better/cheaper )

    I really like the PhotoFusion Blue for a Transition BUT..............
    They do not darken indoors and in while driving. I am light sensitive and also bad road glare so I need a coating that would help with that.
    I have been to a couple Optical Shops and GEEEEEZ. " No you cant have this, not that will not fly " etc.

    I want a GOOD Progressive
    I want PhotoFusion Blue
    I want Flash Mirrors ( White/Silver or? )
    I want Blue Protect / DuraVison / Polarized
    I want a 25% Blue Tint

    They all say NO.

    Also, I read someplace that it was possible to get Zeiss Coatings on a none Zeiss lens. Say a Varilux and add Zeiss PF /DV with flash Mirror?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and offer some advice. Thanks Y'ALL
