    Corridor length, if I'm not mistaken. If the extra number is present, it means that it is a fixed corridor length, and the number corresponds to the ones digit of corridor length. In your case, the...

    I literally laughed at my desk after reading this. And the office was super quiet, so it was really awkward.

    WRT OP, Intelligence has performed well at our office. We use it as a go-to digital...

    Keep in mind that HOYA's Array lenses are free-form lenses. I notice you didn't mention anything about position of wear measurements in the OP, so if (like Robert says) the frame is positioned...

    Anisometropic patients are always tricky. Yes, there are tons of other "things" that could cause issues with regard to Rx, etc. HOWEVER, most of them have to do with (as everyone says) image size...

    Thanks so much for linking to this post, it provides a lot of clarification. It seems I (like many) have been using the term and assuming that it has serious implications on optical quality, when...

    I thought this was the very definition of a corridor drop. Have I been educated incorrectly?

    Not necessarily.

    Generally speaking, the 4mm drop lens will not give a longer intermediate area. However, if you are directly comparing two lenses (one at 2mm drop and one at 4mm drop) in the...

    Thanks for calling this out. A 2mm drop is definitely not BAD, but rather needs to be fit and managed DIFFERENTLY.

    We used this lens a bit more recently when VSP came out with their "Standard...

    We work a lot with HOYA, and have a lot of success with their lenses. That being said, we have had very little success with Amplitude. The big thing to remember is that Amplitude is a 2mm drop...

    A few questions:

    1. What can you tell us about his history? How has his Rx changed over time?

    2. Being a first PAL wearer, and given that you've fit him into a digital PAL, has he worn a...

    Robert, thank you for correcting my language.

    DNICKELLII, I apologize for not being as clear as possible. Robert's analysis (as it usually is) is spot-on. I had the right idea of the way the...

    Varilux Comfort is the original hard-design semi-finished progressive. Basically, a hard-design lens is going to put emphasis on stretching the width of the near zone as far as possible, thereby...

    The Autograph Intelligence is actually considerably different than Autograph III.

    Intelligence actually changes the lens design based on the wearer's add power. At low adds, the design is very...

    I was lucky enough to have a sample delivered to the office in my Rx before they became available for purchase, so I've tried it for the full 2-week life span of the lens.

    I have to say, while...

    Why not just order the free-form windshield? That way the lab can compensate the Rx for you as long as you supply the vertex distance? :giggle:
