    I average selling 3 pairs of Amplitude BKS (backside digital) daily, and we are a small optical. Excellent adaptation rate for both new and old presbyopes. I have NOT had great adaptation rates...

    Funny! Reminds me of the time a woman came in and dumped a grocery sack of arrowheads on the dispensing table. She wanted me to appraise them because I used to be an archaeologist. Then she...

    Why would I remove the lenses, clean eyewire and lens edges, and reassemble, when the lab is going to be disassembling the frame anyway? CLEANING only takes a few seconds. If my lab is too lazy to...

    What's your target demographic? With 100 frames, there is no way you can offer an acceptable selection to everyone. If you want high rollers, you will need one or two high end lines. If you want...

    Yes, I look over frames, but tell patients that we will basically use any frame they think will hold up, but if it breaks it is on them. Our...

    It is obtuse to pretend that all patients want the highest standard of quality. I would wager MOST want just 'good', not excellent. Especially when they never have to opportunity to do a side by...

    Beeped, which IDLS did you put her in? I have had MUCH better luck with the Clarity VS the Harmony, even for some hyperopes.

    Not necessarily. I just had a non-adapt to that exact solution. My patient STILL gets too much swim at intermediate, so she is going to have to go to a SV intermediate or digital ST28. I would...

    Lots of good options like that right now. I really like the Costa Marina 220. Rodenstock 447 is a nice one too.

    Agreed. Done. The lens size is slightly larger which is likely a contributing factor, but pt likes the frame and it is pretty small at 46 eye. Vertex distance is reduced as much as possible.

    Thanks Robert. The Clarity DOES have a generous distance- or so say Hoya and most of my myopic patients. Trying a Seiko Surmount in 1.74 per lab recommendation- will let you know how she does.

    The second part of that sentence is the important one, and that is very grey. For most minors, 'implied consent' governs medical care.

    Did you try reducing the vertex distance if possible? Is he private pay? If so, I would switch him to trivex at no cost, will save you a headache for negligible cost difference. I would also...
