    Polycarbonate is "premium" compared to...uncoated CR39.

    It's a word game.

    I have used it almost exclusively for about 25 years without any real problem, optically.

    Truth be known, though, I...

    I am of the opinion (and you know what that's worth, ha) that the Physio design is what all the following jazzy lenses have been based on.

    SO THERE!

    I'm trying to be clear, and make sweeping generalizations.

    If you're saying 5% more than a little, then I'll just neglect this.

    Is Essilor dissing their Physio lens?

    I'm hearing from up front that VSP's drop down list will not show Physio Trans 8 (or the prior version for that matter).

    Any scoop? Are they turning down the faucet?

    Typical Barry.

    Simply put (and you know this), the numbers on the Rx pad is the "prescriber's intent". No more, no less. It's not mysticism.

    I didn't consider that. So, free form SV for minus can have a bit more of an edge thinning effect than the old molded ones. Huh. Generally FFSV is not expensive, but I do wonder what kind of...

    Nice.

    So the gist of this thread is that, after choosing the right base curve for the power (and considering a little fudge here or there), that bevel customization is the most powerful tool?

    Here's my rough guess.

    Each frame has a range of base curves that will fit it. Probably from about +2.00 to +8.00.

    I would imagine that metal frames are the least forgiving. I would imagine...
