    Well, they put on the trial frame and twist the nobbly bits until the lenses are centred. Simples! We don't use phoropters or auto refractors, so can't comment on them. Some of the big chains do,...

    The lens you decribe is called Wing over here, and is available up to +8.00 in 1.67 material. It probably has a different name in the US.
