My lab gave me a pair of the Essilor Ideal Advanced to compare to my Hoya Lifestyle ID's (quicker turnaround.) I have also sold it to two patients who agreed to be guinea pigs for me.
I HATE it! I put them on and immediatly had that "swim" effect that was the reason I had not been able to wear progressives for so long! My rep called to ask me what I thought and I told him. He then stated that my measurements must be wrong, or my seg is to high. Not so...they are horrible, they give me the same swim effect as the older style lenses. (ps supposedly they are the exact same design as the physio 360, which I believe. I can't wear the 360 family either.)
Has anyone else tried the ideal? or sold it to patients? and if so what is your opinion of it?
