    Anyone know what this progressive is?

    180 engravings are +

    Add below temporal engraving, CO below nasal engraving.

    I've tried my PAL identifier book, as well as the identifier tool on the Laramy-K website and can't find anything.

    HELP!!!!
    There are rules. Knowing those are easy. There are exceptions to the rules. Knowing those are easy. Knowing when to use them is slightly less easy. There are exceptions to the exceptions. Knowing those is a little more tricky, and know when to use those is even more so. Our industry is FULL of all of the above.

    I was thinking it might be a Signet Armorlite lens, they're the only ones I know who use the + sign, but I see no CO listed.

    Yeah, the closest I could find was the Concise in a couple of materials, but none of them have the CO. And SA doesn't have a list of their engravings on their website.

    It's most likely a Shoreview, they use anyone's seconds to make those pieces of crap, it might be a european or asian only design.

    https://epic.thevisioncouncil.org/ This is the best available online. But there will be a ton of private label lenses that won't be in there.

    The private label lenses are killing our resource. What does the power mapping look like?
