    Engravings. Step back a decade, before FF was widespread. Too dark-too light-no one seemed to complain back then, or did you?

    With FF, there are two main options. Mechanical or CO2. Both...

    Since we process IOT and Zeiss, I test various designs before offering them. I've tried the Camber and the Camber Steady. Maybe it’s just me, but I wasn’t wowed. The Alpha45 Ultimate, however,...

    not on here. Too many eyes. However, I’m sure you are experiencing much of what I did early on. I would be happy to help off line.

    PM me.
    Ive learned quite a few things about this machine. It’s quirks, it’s abilities, it’s problems. Once you reconcile these, it’s a great machine.

    This was the the info provided by the center optician. They did state that it was a tort, but not the exact color. At this time, I’m assuming k25.

    ISO Lindberg insert

    Optipeeps.

    I'm told that this frame was disco'd somewhere around 2014. One of my techs broke the dry-rotted insert and our patient is less than pleased, even though she signed the waiver.

    TB, this is a tough one. -4.5 and -0.5. Until she gets over her RX, not much you can do. Nothing that even a custom bevel can overcome. See it all the time here.

    This will show that I pretty much fart dust. All you Old timers will understand.
    Guided bevels are nothing new. The technology in today’s CNC edgers just makes it easier.

    Bingo, doc.
    I use photography as an analogy. DSLRs are powerful tools. Takes great shots on Auto, but once you go Manual, a whole new level of creativity and control awaits.

    Trivex or Poly. Film is near the front on these. Do a 33% or even a 50% groove and you should be fine. I have done this on IC Berlins and other in lines with no issues.

    A good example of a 1.25 BC lens in a 4.5 Z frame. 3.5 curve with a 1.2 bevel on a 7EX with a 5 degree taper body. Nothing sticks out front, very little on the back of a -6. Good frame for the RX ...

    HaHa! You wouldn’t believe the number of redos we get exactly for this reason. I didn’t ask for something that changes. Or, I asked for that all in one lens I can’t read out of these. SMHV.

    Cost effective. Most PALs, when properly fitted work well. Lower the cost, the better the adaptation, regardless of molded or FF. See Ryser’s Rule
