    I was not aware of the big E having association with contact lenses... was I wrong? Do they own part of CL too? As if the EssiLux thing wasn't bad enough... branching out in to the CL area wouldn't...

    After a year, I brake down the tray. Frame gets demos and back on board and the lenses go in a baggie. Deposit is kept because lenses were made. Insurance is kept because lenses were made. ...

    I guess I've been lucky? I worked in an office that sold over 400/year. You could count on fingers how many would come back broken and almost all of those were years old (4/5+). Occasionally...

    So in our case, the ones we make are for our pre-op patients who are not in these very long. We purposely make them super cheap because they will be tossing them once they have surgery. We only use...

    I'm really surprised that this is an issue. I've never had many broken silhouettes. Although last week I had one that was mangled by a dog. I do keep extra, discs on site (in a gun color so it...

    Just spoke to my lab rep and she said it's because these lenses are from Essilor and Essilor is having back order issues. Currently only Essilor makes Trivex 7x28, but Trivex bifocals can be sourced...

    This is a good question and coincidentally came up at a good time. I have found that some cleaning wipes have a lot of alcohol in them and can ruin the finish on zyl frames. I have also heard, but...

    Does anyone know of any independent optical labs that aren't small? Are there any left? The little guy can't compete. I've had Essilor lab reps come in and offer free progressives for a month. ...
