    And, really, knowing that 15 degrees is kind of a cut-off between funky ophthalmic designs and true sport-wrapped frames (who tend to have 20 up), if you have a wrapped sunglass, simply go with the...

    I'm a little perturbed about warranty work.

    First of all, heap scorn upon me for dealing with vision care plans. Ha ha. Drk takes vision care plans with crappy margins.

    I admit it.

    Here's the deal: how can you have great service with...

    Yes, now that I think about it, what about TR90 frames? Do they have wire cores?

    Love the answers from our great opticians in the UK and AUS.

    Robert, you say the Superb has a "bigger distance zone". Compared to what?

    Apar! Thank you!

    I was initially told the same, then I was told otherwise. I don't know if I can get a straight answer.

    Occasionally Brent McArdle will post and clear up Zeiss questions.

    Looked at Safilo, yesterday.

    1. Chesterfield. Is there a better XL collection on the planet?

    OK, I'm hearing that all the Smart Life lenses (be it the Superb/Plus/Pure design or the Invidudual design(s) are automatically given correct face form compensation without special request.
  15. Zeiss (Smartlife) Superb question re: wrap compensation.

    I can't get a clear answer on this one.

    Can I use (Smartlife) Superb for a wrap sunglass PAL? Can I specify wrap, or can someone/something at the lab specify wrap?

    Yes, I know the...
