    I only recommend Midland Optical. We've been using them exclusively for 20 years. Not the cheapest, not the fastest, but the best. I've dallied with a dozen other labs over the years, including the...

    The lens markings are the reference point for blocking progressives, freeform or otherwise. My autoblocker detects the markings only when blocking, ignoring lens power. There is nothing I could do...

    This isn't the best sales approach, but then I agree with my peers here that we are not salespeople anyway. I open with price. It just makes sure the customer and I are having the same conversation....

    I've switched all my Comfort DRx/W2/Physio DRx wearers (26 pairs dispensed so far) to the Max with no issues. It's a fine replacement for all those (I still use DRx designs occasionally just for the...

    I try very hard to stay away from tinting because most the time I order something special it does not turn out as expected, and it's a huge hassle to redo or customize if you do high quality AR and...

    Liz is getting a huge boost because Saks is gone and Liz will take it's place in the lineup. I'm happy with it too, more modern than Saks and lots of petite options. I'm going to have to find a LOL...

    Any lab, even exclusively VSP labs, will send you uncuts. The IOF pays you more to compensate for you doing the edging work, but will only pay for Plexus-sourced FSV. If you edge a surfaced lens VSP...

    I like the service center idea as well. Servicing at a dealership is partially to make some incremental income off the service, but I imagine the real purpose is to maintain connection with the...

    A couple years ago VSP changed the savings statement to be unavailable until after a claim is submitted, and ever since then the pricing system is completely broken and inaccurate. All PRICED claims...

    In the prem tier 2 I don't think anything beats Comfort/DRx, but I would go with Robert and up to tier 3 for Physio/DRx. It was a contemporary design with the GT2 and my problem-free premium...

    Aha, so that's the excuse for the dubious and experientially false claim of certain AR makers that their product was "as scratch resistant as glass." Bring on the sand!

    Lensman11 is correct, and it is precisely to protect their dip chemicals. An AR without the dip coat substrate should be fine, therefore anything other than Crizal or Duravision.

    I have that tool! Albeit the 20yo version of it. Those are some lovely Panamic lenses in there. It's an inspired concept and a clever simply designed device. But many years ago when I first used it...

    It is true if you are a VSP Premier provider. They give you rebates for selling their stuff. If you are not Premier it's the same.

    It's the same as Techshield UVR and Blue because they include the backside AR add-on, which is on ALL Crizal.
