    Saving on lab edging fees is just one of the financial benefits to edging in house. Having our own edger also allows us to order generic stock SV lens options (Synergy Crystal, Lighten Up, and even...

    All kinds of reasons. Patient convenience if we're re-using POFs, for one. I'm a better finishing technician than most, for another. And it saves us the edging fee on every job, which is the big one.

    For stock SV we use conventional lenses. For nearly all progressives we use free-form designs. The former helps pay for the latter.

    Also, yes, I would trust the technology rather than try to finesse customizations into a lens design that has its own customization built in.

    I've never had such violent non-adapts as I have to the Varilux S. People who don't like it really don't like it.

    Broadening the subject back out from Chemistrie clips, we do very, very well with Aspex clip-on frames (though they are a bit pricey), and Polaroid has a few very attractive options as well.
