    Techshield Blue slipping… help!
    by opticalnerdOD

    Zenni Progressive Design
    by alexmontalban0
    Does anyone know/has anyone been able to figure out what design of progressive lenses Zenni uses? We've seen an uptick in our area and the majority of patients are having issues with them, so just trying to figure out what to avoid in the future.
