    You can't clock an aspheric lens. The pins are too far apart to register the gradual change.

    Boo hoo.

    I'm NOT saying that 1/8 of a diopter matters very much, typically.

    In fact, few can see the difference.

    I'm not a dick. I'm just cranky.

    Or maybe I am a dick.

  12. Turning plano frame demo lenses into sun demo lenses.

    Hey, I have some ophthalmic "Jones" frames from "Tafilu" that may be a little too over-the-top to appeal to my market.

    But you know how hard it is to imagine your...

    Being on the cutting edge, here, I just got a look at Gucci (and McQ and Puma) today.

    I bought it. It's nice stuff.

    It's pricey, but the quality and style seem commensurate.

    Skin allergy to spring hinge box

    I made a kid a nice pair of sporty, mirrored-lens, wrap sunglasses he wears for baseball. Unfortunately he's reacting to the spring hinge box on the temples.
