    Correct. You should not be adjusting the fitting height for FFSV lenses. Most are fit on center. I think the Zeiss Ind SV is a 4 drop from the fitting cross to the prp.



    Not really. Sounds like...

    Yes for jobs that are not plano. The minimum blanks size for a plano is equal to the ED+2mm. Your software might not include this exception. This is why we should work to understand the underlying...

    That is not how a lab makes lenses. If you can't verify the PD the lab can't layout a PD.

    I assume this means ordering a job cut and edged by a remote lab, and not uncut lenses, right?

    Move it from where? Moving it(decentering) assumes there is a correct place to move it from. Why layout the lens in a suboptimal position then move it to a more optimal position?
