    Charts, pictures needed for training

    Hi all,
    Does anyone have any blank or otherwise pictures of the lensometer MIRES so that we can use it to train our techs on recognizing prism in glasses. I have searched all over the internet and really have only found one that has an example of 1BD prism. But I'd like to see some with different amounts and areas of prism we can use. Thanks.

    Pretty sure there are some in System for Ophthalmic Dispensing. Does your office have any textbooks?

    I would think that They would be easy enough to make.

    I would make upma few with a compass and ruler and have them laminated so that you could use a grease pencil one them.

    There bare a few members who teach/speak on here. Hopefully they will chime in. Maybe they have a slide, or image they can let you have?
