  1. Poly vs. Trivex

    It really does yellow folks. Proof's in the puddin:



    Edited to add the following from the original post: My lenses are 2.5 years old in this frame, the Hoya lenses are 1.5 years old. Mine use Crizal Avancé, and the Trivex use Super Hi Vision. neither pair are photochromic. The Trivex plainly shows yellow, whereas the poly lenses are clear.

  2. OptiBlog 2007 - What's the future of Opticianry?

    Well here we are in the last quarter of 2007. This year has certainly packed in a great deal of changes for me as well as the industry itself: Corporate mergers and takeovers, Advances in PPAL's and let's not forget my recent exit from dispensing.

  4. Finding an optician for $25 an hour.

    I really can't believe that it's taken this long to find a part-time optician. This is the kind of job I'd love. No management duties, no politics, no ordering, repairs, or lab work; just show up with brushed teeth and clean clothes, and dispense your tail off!

    To be honest, I'm very surprised. When I call areas that are less than an hour away from here, they tell me that the going wage is around $13-$18 an hour. Granted, this is part time, which is why I'm paying more, but still, ...

  5. Dear Abby:

    Dear Abby:

    Optiboard just started "blogs", and I have the opportunity to participate. I know I should be excited, but why? What's the advantage of a blog, and how/why would I use it?

    Should I feel embarrassed asking this question? I'm sure all of my friends have blogged.

    Thanks for listening...
