    Honestly, I feel like most of the memory I call on for work is a combination of "What PALs are at what price for each insurance" and "What lens options are available for each PAL." It's occasionally...

    For stock SV we use conventional lenses. For nearly all progressives we use free-form designs. The former helps pay for the latter.

    Nothing--literally nothing--will increase your AR sales more than doctors recommending it from the chair. There is no amount of training, no sales aids, and no carefully-worded pitch that has half...

    Also, yes, I would trust the technology rather than try to finesse customizations into a lens design that has its own customization built in.

    +1. Work/life balance is also vital. I've stayed in a job I didn't love because the schedule was so good.

    I've never had such violent non-adapts as I have to the Varilux S. People who don't like it really don't like it.

    I used to work with a doctor who tried every new thing that came along and told...

    My go-to EyeMed lens for this kind of situation is a Shamir InTouch. It's Tier 3, though.

    Fun fact: they had to close their Metropolis facility because their Kryptonite B testing was harmful to Superman. Had to move it all the way to Gotham.

    Broadening the subject back out from Chemistrie clips, we do very, very well with Aspex clip-on frames (though they are a bit pricey), and Polaroid has a few very attractive options as well.

    I'd be more surprised to learn that Essilux was not​ exploring acquiring a contact lens company.

    Me. I don't.

    I've been in offices with competitive goals, such as "sell the most AR coatings," "sell the most second pairs," "sell the most non-RX sunglasses to contact lens patients," etc. I...

    For me personally? Varilux X Design and Zeiss Individual/I are head and shoulders above the rest. I also like the Unity Via Elite and Shamir InTouch a lot. I loathe the Varilux S.

    That's almost not funny. In my experience, the Big Boys fill their outside optical sales positions with folks who have outside sales experience but no optical knowledge whatsoever. You're more likely...

    Airlock is reeeeeeeally close to Silhouette, but perversely the drill holes are just slightly bigger. I've used them interchangeably in a pinch and they almost work.

    When I got the original Reflection Free AR in 1990, I hated it so much that I removed it by simply soaking the lenses in alcohol for about 15 minutes. But I don't think you need to worry about that...

    Hire a skilled edging technician. Ask them what edger to buy. Have them operate the edger. 50 jobs a day is worth hiring a full-time lab tech.
