    They have a pretty bad reputation both for customer service and as employers. Especially of optometrists. But because they control over 50% of the UK market, plenty of people still work for them.

    Yes Nylon lenses are a thing. Not as good as CR39 or glass, obviously.

    Thanks everyone for the advice.

    I polished the lenses today - they look a lot better! I managed to get a nice satin polish, not quite transparent like you can achieve with plastic though. I used...

    Is it possible to apply an edge polish to glass? I've always been told no but never tried. This job is for my friend who is a -12.00 and even the 1.9 lenses still look pretty thick. Any advice would...

    Ah, sorry for suggesting something you couldn't get.

    For what it's worth, there's loads we can't get either in the UK. Even if I ask really nicely.

    No. I mean Precision Superb. The previous generation Superb, from before Smartlife. Maybe they just call it Superb in the US.

    I sell 90% Smartlife but Precision would be better for this use case.

    You are much better using the precision superb for sport purposes. Better optimisation for wraps and a bigger distance zone

    But tints are really in at the moment, I think almost every dispense should have one personally. It really finishes the right style off. Also sometimes a tint is preferable to polarised for certain...

    Trust me, samples won't help with this. You'll still get people who change their mind on the tint and expect you to cover the bill. I even had a client the other day ask for a remake with no tint...

    I'm pretty sure at this point that it's just the same product rebranded. BUT I think they might have made new blanks, rather than using the really old ones which they were using for Vantage.
