    The Trivex layer is about 1mm thick, with a 2mm edge that puts the seam right in the middle of the groove. I'm going to contact Younger and see what they say about this, it sounds like its a common...

    I suppose I could specify a thicker edge to reposition the groove but then it starts affecting the weight and aesthetics of a nylor frame. Im going to try widening the groove a bit or maybe using a...

    I believe the lens is made by Younger and they call it poly but itís a composite poly-trivex lens.

    I wonder if I need to make the groove a little wider so the liner doesn’t create as much of a wedging effect.

    They use glass on many of their Plano lenses, I think they phased out poly on their RX lenses.

    If the demo fits nice and securely in the frame, I will trace the demo lens. Sometimes they cut the demos on wrap frames slightly taller in the B measurement and narrower in the A, I assume to help...

    What about a lab compensated Rx that falls outside of ansi standards? Do you trust the software that does the compensation and see if the patient can tolerate it or do you remake?

    I'd bring a couple different jobs with you when you go to view the edger and ask if you can process them. One zyl, one metal and one nylor.

    For zyl frames I use a variable bevel, cut rear bevel slightly longer (0.2mm) so lens material is not pushing the rear edge of the eyewire out. Also helps to match the bevel curve to the curve of...
