    Stock Frosted Lens?

    Kinda weird, but since we switched to freeform and direct polishing, we can't really make frosted lenses anymore. Does anyone know where I can buy a stock frosted lens?

    Thanks,

    That was a great thought, but I called the account and they said that was not the case. The pt had "Mims" written on a note that they had received from another doctor.
