    But humans have always been exposed to "bad blue light" (I think you meant 400-450) from being outside. Vision Ease states that 15 minutes spent outside in full sun is equivilent to 10 HOURS of...

    I certainly do not know that OVVO frames vary in size. I just made new lenses for a patients frame, without having the frame, that I originally made in 2018. The lenses fit perfectly. How could a...

    This is entirely an issue with your lab of choice and not OVVO. Frame brand is irrelevant. It's not like the stainless/titanium frames are shrinking over time.

    I've never used Spectangle but I have been using an Optikam Pad for a little over 8 years. It works great for me. But, it is just a tool, and it is only as good as it's operator, it's not automatic...

    For well over half a century eyeglasses have been fashion devices, and fitting flattering frames to patients has been a required skill set for opticians. To say we would be better off if we stopped...

    Transitions lenses are a comfort device not a replacement for a dedicated pair of sunglasses. Also if it is very hot out, transitions lenses will not get as dark.

    Why not just tint the lenses darker? It's a much simpler fix. I've done at least a dozen this year to 90% and the people that wanted super dark loved them. Category 3 "general purpose lens or shield,...

    3 below sounds terrible. I suppose we should clarify what fitting parameter we are talking about. The fitting cross. I assume the people saying 3 below are talking about the 180 layout marks on a 4...

    I think you have made a gross underestimation of what an optometrist does, and an equally massive overvaluation of a tech.

    That may be the best way to do it depending on the rest of the Rx, acuities and fitting parameters. I wouldn't say it's outright wrong.

    I occasionally still do solder repairs but you are definitely correct. Unless the frame is real cheap or real old, most of them can't be soldered anymore. You need something like this for titanium...

    Well I guess we will disagree there. I don't see how complimentary adjustments correlates to unlimited warranties. What do you do when someone brings you a 5 year old frame, refuse to adjust it?!?
