    Re-branding?

    Is this the Physio 360 in a new box? Seems like all the same characteristics.

    It will ultimately replace the 360 product.

    The PDF's take a little long to load, but they've got good information.

    I always wondered how Varilux lenses could be improved, because if you believe their advertising, they're already perfect. So how can you improve on perfection?

    Sorry to be a wet blanket, but how in the world can anyone give Essilor any cred on a new product?

    They've got a lens a month...

    They're making warm-fuzzy claims about illumination...

    They routinely misrepresent and obfuscate...

    There are *plenty* of us who use Essilor lenses, and many other large multi-national lens manufacturers products with *great* success. Simply put - they work. And very very well for many of us. They're also cheaper to some of us than just about any other option. They offer a very wide selection of lenses for a wide selection of lifestyles and vision needs. They have a killer warranty. They have some pretty amazing representation out in the field (hat tip in our Pete's general direction). Are they "perfect"? Nope. But neither is *ANY* other lens manufacturer on this little rock we call home. Misrepresent? No more than *ANY* other lens manufacturer I've ever met.

    No need to be a hater! :shiner::p:cheers::cheers::cheers:

    I just can't get that excited about progressives anymore. We had a frame rep that swore up and down that all she could wear was the latest and greatest in lens design. She tried the 'older' designs years ago and she hated them!! She brought a pair of sunglasses and we put in some progressives. She claimed they were wonderful and the vision was great! She was dying to know what lens we used. We told her, VIP. Oh that was great!!

    To be honest I have never encountered a lens that didn't work. As long as you select and fit correctly they'll be fine. Don't get me wrong I sell the crap out of these newer designs....it's just...well the thrill is gone!!!

    I can't wait to see what the March lens of the month is, and who buys into it. I faintly remember reading something about Oprah's book club....

    This thread is a good example of what I was referring to in the "monopoly" thread. This isn't a bash on Luzerne, but a comment on independent labs in general.

    Why don't they promote more choices from non E sources?

    Who said?

    I have heard rumor that the Panamic has been set for retirement, but I have yet to hear any rumor or bitter chattering about the Ellipse.

    I heard that Ellipse is being renamed something mystical like "Varilux Short".
