    Makes me happy that I am independent. We are large enough to keep Zeiss, but small enough to not worry about **** like this.

    People were less picky about thickness back then. No such thing as 1.7, nor 1.74. Mostly glass and plastic, some Poly. Opticians sold what was available, the patient wore what was available and...

    We sold a lot of Amplitude over the years with a lot of success. The Summit was another, though a bit more expensive. Our issue was with backorders. We sell a lot of Photochromics, and Hoya just...

    Totally with you in this. We are again back in the 80’s, except, PRPs were seldom notated back then. Love when opticians sub high index materials, then complain about thickness.

    If only doing 10/day, I would suggest a recirc system if you go the wet edger route. Otherwise, look for a Optronics 7EX. Versatile, cost effective, and may just fit the bill for your dry edger...

    AO Compact is now under the Synchrony brand. Contact your Zeiss rep for details. In the meantime, there are multiple FF options available to fit PAL as low as 13-14mm. A much better option than...

    Move the chiller to an indoor location, away from high traffic/work areas. Or, purchase a better chiller. Yours may be on its last leg. Yes, the heat exchange can be warm, but it should not be...

    There is a significant change in RX, and this begs a question. Implant? +2.50 to near plano should be a red flag. Also, I would guess that the there is an add power difference. If so, there may...

    This! First, I would check the tempering under a polariscope for the maltese cross. Maltese cross=heat temper. I would not retemper if it was heat treated-greater chance of breaking. No...

    My thoughts, too. One more item. What about the vertex? Is this a new frame? Since the OD is a balance, I would not chase the OC issue on that one, instead, maintain your "focus" on the...

    Soooo many questions. I personally am not set up to process lenticularized FF (yet), so I cannot answer this question. I can generate up to 30D, but can only polish up to 16D. The carrier is...

    Best option. Lenticularized FF 167. Request an MR10. Assuming a 30b, I would drop the PRP by 2mm for better cosmetics.

    Not an option. When I bring the matter up at our regional meetings, I am the bad guy, so I leave it alone. Close relationship? With some locations, yes.

    In so many ways, yes. There can be a liability to the dispensing optician and the lab should these be worn in an environment requiring OSHA approved safety eyewear. Z87 minimum thickness is 3.0mm,...
