    Hey folks, long time no see!

    We purchased a refurbished Nidek LE-9000SX about 6 months ago and it's been working like a charm. I've run into an issue that I can't seem to figure out though. I've...

    I don't have a list but if I were to guess, Ontario's are probably close to 2x the other provinces', but that's because they have a combined license. Most of the rest of them break it down into your...

    Kinda hard to tell from the picture but it looks like an IC Berlin. Try holding the front securely while twisting the temple. That's how the ICs open anyway.

    If you haven't seen them before, I would 100% suggest IC Berlin (http://www.ic-berlin.de/en_GB). They're laser-cut stainless steel. No solder points to let go. No screws to come loose. Even the...

    I don't often post much anymore, but I do lurk a bit. I had to log back in to chime in on this post. We carry quite a bit of Oakley product between our two offices. Probably close to 200 pieces...

    I doubt anyone would want to pay for a better fresnel. They're designed to be disposable diagnostic tools, not something to be worn for any extended period of time. For the cost of a better fresnel,...

    Honestly the only TR-90 frames that I've had issue with are ones that have absolutely no metal core to them. Generally the good ones will have solid plastic from the temple to about 4-5cm from the...

    If it was applied properly the first time, there should be nothing between the fresnel and the actual lens other than a bit of leftover water (but probably not). Yank away!

    Going to second this. Most of our stock lenses come labled 65/70 for the +/- Powers. Seems like there's more to it than I thought though!

    I don't claim to be a tax expert, but that's not how it works in Canada. There's never tax on our wholesale invoices (unless it's for sunglasses/accessories etc, never opthalmic frames). The...

    As do we when it's appropriate, but when it comes to Opthalmic frames, we almost never get charged shipping, definitely not on warranty products. There's a couple suppliers who charge $5 here and...

    This was my first thought too. Though that being said, if her cataracts are that advanced, she probably shouldn't be buying new glasses at all.
