    Insurance

    Do you have to have a NPI number to take insurance? We don't do Medicare or Medicaid.
    We are thinking about wanting to take some insurances. Is it worth taking insurance?

    Use aluminum. They act like a heat sink to draw heat away from the lens during fining and polishing. I get better results with aluminum.

    Rec Specs

    Is there any reason why you can't use CR-39 at safety thickness in a pair of Rec Specs?
    Is it just a better move to use poly or trivex?
