    glass execs

    OK, the coin finally dropped, execs in glass are now discontinued - or are they? Anyone have a source? Jacqui?

    It's nice to be popular :D :D

    I didn't know they had been disco'd. You may still want to call X-cel and maybe even Vision-ese to make sure, they may have some stock left. If all else fails contact Docinchina, he may be able to get them there. Also contact Optispares on OB, they may still be made in Europe.

    Could do them Franklin style :D

    I have a few Semi finished blanks on my shelf, oddball stuff. What do you need?

    Why would you want glass execs? I think you can still get them in plastic and I believe in poly but I would not swear to it in poly.

    I don't want them, an old customer (that I have escaped from 3 times over the years) has found me; he wants them. If I can't get them, I'll have to listen (again) to the story of Leica\Zeiss, and how Canon can't ever hope to measure up, and the failings of the American optical industry, and rather a lot more. Thank you for your responses. Good ideas there.

    I have two pairs left that will work for my Rx and no one can have them !!!! Call Janet at Laramy-K and see if she has anything that will work for you.

    I don't think they were ever available in poly.
