    State Optical Frames

    Hey peeps.
    Anyone here in the Optiverse stocking these? I am intrigued by the Made in Chicago and their independence. Also, I like the looks of this line. What feedback do you have?
    TIA

    Anytime
    Forgot about the window. Lens cleaner is all you need to see the chamber. Mine is the NBL, and I need the camera on a few occasions to monitor the process.

    Wire brush or hard bristled paint brush and vacuum. I’ve had the EZFit for two years and that is all I do. The milling action reduces the amount of swarf build up compared to the 7E.

    Human eyes can not detect the chromatic aberration if the Abbe number is above 40. With that in mind, why not 1.6 for +3 and up, or -4 and up? Yes, it is less impact resistant and weighs about...

    Know your material pros and cons. Fit the best frame for the RX. Minimize decentration. Add AR to deal with reflectivity. Know your materials.

    Thank you.
    Too many “opticians” only see higher indices and expect them to be better, with zero to little knowledge of the actual properties of the material.

    Poly is more impact resistant, less prone to heat damage, and when glazed properly, chipping/cracking is minimal. Did I mention that out of close to 50000 pairs that we produced last year, we had 47...
