I've been working in the optical profession in a local lab for about a year now, and I'm curious about what tricks you long-timers have found for seeing the laser etchings on the front of progressive lenses.
Here I was taught to hold the lens out at arms length towards the ceiling florescent lights and work till the markings pop out. I have also noticed that I can see the markings holding the lens down in front of me and catching a reflection off the ceiling lights, but this one is pretty hit or miss.
The real fun ones are the ones with AR coating. I know that folks walking by the lab and looking in have had to wonder why I was standing there looking like a fat version of the statue of liberty for 20 minutes trying to see that dang circle :bbg:
Somewhere my brain is telling me ... there must be a better way! Hopefully some of you have some better ideas.
I'm all ears... ;)
