    Essilor Free Form

    What is the least expensive Essilors Free Form lenses in Canada!

    In USA it looks like Ideal is cheapest, not counting Shore lens.....

    Niether is Shore. Though you can get both with a digital aspheric/atoric back surface. My definition of a FF lens is where the entire progressive design is accomplished using software controlled digital generators. The Ideal is Essilor's low end FF design.

    This is exactly what I am looking for in Canada!
    I also believe there is Shore digital, but I still cant get a straight answer from them if its a true FF lens.....

    No. Shoreview PAL's are molded progressives. Shore View digital are simpling back side produced atoric/aspheric lenses. The difference is digital generating vs traditional generating, similar to the diffence between Accolade and Accolade Freedom. The biggest difference between the two is AF can have a duel add design( front and backside PAL add designs) dependent on fitting height.

    Where can I get the info on Shoreview digital advanced mini and others are not true FF lenses (not made from SV blank)?
