    I would say it is better to pick a demographic or niche for you optical. It's very difficult to be everything to everybody. The Michelin star restaurant isn't going to keep a bag of frozen chicken...

    There was already law and punishments in place for withholding CL Rx's. Why would the minority of doctors who are dumb enough to already break the law, change their minds because of the rule change?...

    I had one of these come in a few years ago for some crazy magic tint with the form and a page of detailed instructions. I politely declined. Not worth the headache for me. Far too many things out of...

    I'm pretty sure the old contact lens rule didn't allow alterations or substitutions either. With the same exception that exists in the new law.

    What's relevant from that thread to the current state of Hoya 1.74 coatings? IMO I don't think people arguing back and forth about what an outdated Essilor website meant to say warrants HOF status....

    I've always said/read iodine crystals. The interwebs more specifically say iodoquinine sulphate or herapathite. I have never heard those names until just now. I think I'll stick with Iodine crystals.

    If it is strictly a computer PAL and the patient doesn't need to see beyond the screen for anything, I always make them from a standard PAL with Rx adjustments. Usually reduce the add by half and add...

    I think it's pretty obvious that Drk isn't talking about a stock lens, because what in the world would you need a tracing for when using a stock lens?

    Frame measurements will get you a blank that works. But it's certainly not as good as a tracing, especially in plus powers.

    Well yes, but my point was if the lenses were cut off axis, then the frame was bent to fix that, realigning the frame isn't going to the only thing that needs to be fixed.

    You can use the power in any axis formula, but I think the ABO basic will always have questions at axis 30(120), 45(135), 60(150), 90, or 180. They want to you know the precent of cylinder present at...

    It sounds like a one-off of 7 styles of frames. The frames are the real concern for me as an optician. It's nice to sell planos with good lenses, but I'm going to Rx 90% of the suns I sell.

    Is this an old school slab off with a sharp line, or one of the new freeform slab offs? IMO the latter suck, bad, and could be described as a blurry wave across the lens. Was the lens checked to make...
