    Post Opinion: Article On Free-form/Digital Progressives

    http://www.ecpmag.com/1webmagazine/2...tal-lenses.asp

    I came across this article explaining about the new progressive manufacturing processes. I wonder if people here can give me any feedback on the quality of information in this article, or have anything to add?

    I'd like to share it with my classmates in the Dispensing Optician course but would like to verify that it's good info.

    Thanks,
    Cindi

    Thanks, I agree on his photo, but I'm glad you all thought the article was good. I posted it for my colleagues. Now let's see if they have the initiative to read it. LOL

    It is a good article. If I can find one that goes into more depth about the actual manufacture I will send it to you.

    We're just razzing old Fezzie, since he wrote that article.

    But at least he now knows who his friends are!!:D:D

    Fezz, it's a talented writer who can write about technical things simply and clearly and get the point across. Much appreciated.

    You should have gotten the memo when you got your first screwdriver.

    I think its going to be a requirement to take the ABO starting in 2010.
