    Symfony IOL

    Technis just got the FDA to "approve" their new IOL, which they are pushing as a non-multifocal answer to the superiority of single vision iols. Looks like more trash optics to me. For a fairly...

    I'm down to peroxide only

    Is it just me, or has everyone stopped shipping free sample sizes of soft lens solutions with cases (starter packs)?

    It seems B&L has stopped shipping biotrue kits. Alcon has stopped shipping...

    Agreed, but I'm a short timer who's got more work than I can handle, so I'm keeping such discussions quick and simple. I'm finding it much easier to let people go now with Rx in hand than I used to....

    I think the easiest and quickest way is to point out that we charge $40 to refurbish, realign and re-adjust an old frame. No charge and no fault if the frame breaks in the process (rare) in which...

    [QUOTE=Golfnorth;511704]Said "No" to the question of any use of older specs

    I recommend each pair of glasses that the patient uses have at least one, maybe 2 older but most recent pairs as backup....

    The largest PROVIDER of eye wear plans in the US is probably VSP. A close second would be EyeMed. There are a lot of INSURANCE COMPANIES that sell plans from both of those providers, and I don't...

    Being more interested in the vision of the patient than how the glasses look, I tend to push more of the prism into the poorer seeing eye, or into the non dominant eye.

    It will happen when we cannot make a living being VSP docs. It could happen, but I doubt they will screw it up that much.

    Today you get that $30, but what will they pay next year for that? When will it become madatory that you will take care of their online sales for free, in order to be on the provider panel?

    That...

    Ok so yesterday I had to adjust a pair of Eyeconic frames. Took me 60 seconds to adjust the temple tips a bit. So maybe that minute is more than "next to nothing". Again, I think this program...

    Interesting, I've been in practice 46 years and nobody has ever asked me for a "pupil height". I see OC ht on every lab form I use, but this is the first time I've heard of "pupil height". I can't...

    I received a bottle of your product and see that I need an orbital polisher to finish the coating process. That got me thinking, would just high gloss polishing the edges of all poly lenses help...

    I think for lined multifocals segment height is from the highest point of the segment to the lowest point of the LENS, and for progressives is from the fitting cross to the lowest point of the lens,...

    Yes, let's not. But let's differentiate those whose conditions are out of control vs those that are under control, or well controlled.. The former are as you say, the latter of each category can be...

    Barry is confusing visual acuity with far point of focus.

    I often Rx far point at optical infinity, usually for young folks with normal accommodation, convergence and orthophorias at distance...

    [QUOTE=DanLiv;524668]Off topic, but if I were Lux I wouldn't sell Pearle (or anything else) to VSP. VSP is their competitor for insurance and frames, why would they allow VSP to expand tho...

    an extra 15 grand a year for doing next to nothing? Not that it will actually get that high, but yes, I would probably spend it with much frivolity.

    Great, if your 'do is large enough and thick enough to block most all sunlight from behind and above you from impinging on the BACK surfaces of your lenses, you are safe. Just be kind to others and...

    If a handful did that they wouldn't probably notice. If they all did at once, (aka CONSPIRACY) it would slow the system down to a crawl.

    I'm sorry I addressed 2 different subjects in my post; Eyeconic has to be losing money; the lab is competent for sure, but has way more work funneled through it than it can possibly handle with only...

    Then unless the underlying lens has very strong blue filtering built in, you will get additional blue reduction through the lens. Unfortunately, with the Recharge you will also be directing blue and...

    Absolutely. Nothing impresses patients and staff like me picking up a pair of glasses and estimating by eye what the Rx and lens type is. It's amazing how hard to impart this skill to a newbie...

    Do you really mean a blue filter, or a blue reflector?

    Original reason was they are not equipped to handle some special and proprietary lens/frame combinations, and that became outsourcing the really tough, time consuming jobs, but now, at over 6K pairs...
