    The filters are stopping HEV blue light from passing through, so a yellowish tinge is the result. The coatings are different; the front side is for all intents and purposes a flash mirror, so it...

    RX those Polaroid suns! We do! Even if you throw the polarized plano lenses away they're still an amazing bang-for-the-buck sunglass line. And the Polaroid ophthalmics are selling much better for us...

    Absolutely agreed. If I had to carry only one frame manufacturer in my office it would be Safilo, easy.

    Also, why discontinue Kate Spade after she died? She sold the brand off over a decade...

    Is the test pen one designed to work with the exact brand of "blue blocker" lens you're using? If it's from another lens company, it's designed to make their particular lens look good, and may not...

    If this was my patient, I'd be recommending a digital lens in a hyper high index material, likely 1.67, and of course with an anti-reflective coating. I love the Zeiss Individual lens and use it...

    Bear in mind also that, even for offices that are able to place Davis orders through an ELOA lab, there are still a small number of Davis Medicaid plans that will require you to use the old Davis...

    Dovetailing in on this, it's good to have discounted private-label lens products in your pocket for just such a situation. We use Lighten Up and Synergy Crystal AR for private-pay SV and over the...

    It's absolutely true that smaller rectangular men's frames are hard as hell to find. I used to sell a semi-rimless 49mm Carrera in many of those cases, but Safilo discontinued the frame a year or so...

    Do you have the option of just not carrying that frame any more? I assume since it's coming up regularly that it's a frame coming from an attached dispensary. I've done that in a few cases with...

    And what material are the lenses made of? This is a not-uncommon problem with zyl frames and low-minus polycarbonate lenses. The poly is somewhat flexible, so it will bend if it's edged just a little...

    Yeah. All things being equal, you go with the industry standard. That way everything is consistent from department to department, and new hires with experience don't need to be retrained.

    It's available in many more lens designs, coatings, powers, sizes, and photochromic options, and is much much less expensive. It's also much more impact-resistant, so much safer for kids and sports.
