    I concur with this assessment. I've had an easy time dispensing the LifeStyle Indoors flavor to patients that expressed greater need for intermediate/near work. I did have one patient that...

    As far as I know, most Metlife plans contract with VSP. On the list of managed care discount plans, I'd say going from Versant to VSP is an upgrade in customer service at least.

    Based on the diamonds being used for the Progressive markers, I'd guess it's an X-CEL Freedom ID, but that's just an educated guess. Is it by chance a glass lens? I know the Freedom ID is the go-to...
