    Which semi-finsihed lens wholesalers do you use?

    I'm still considering getting into surfacing and want to know which semi-finished lens wholesalers everyone uses.

    The only place I've talked to thus far is MJ Optical. Do you go through a general wholesaler or get stuff straight from Zeiss/Sola, Essilor, Younger, etc?

    Thanks!

    -Steve

    I love this board - great to get advice from people in the know.

    I like refer to the 1.67 smell as the "smell of money."

    I like to refer to the 1.67 smell as "the hair in my nose burning and my eyes watering"

    That is very natural...............when the hair in the nose burns, the smoke and the fumes go up the lacrimal ducts from the nose to the eyes............and that is why the eyes are watering.................not from the 1.67

    :D :bbg: :D

    Just think of it as a good flushing of the nasolacrimal system. ;)
