    need a video tutorial on reading a progressive lens

    I've searched youtube and can't find one. Does anyone know where I can find a video showing and explaining how to read progressives?

    Only videos I remember, were old VHS training tapes from when I worked at Pearle Vision. They were all made at the home office, with various members of the field support team as the cast. Some of the titles were, "Edward Dispenser Hands", "Rom-ANSI-ng the Stone", "Managed Vision Scare" just to name a few.

    They were all ridiculous and cheesy, but fun and informative.

    I realize this doesn't help you much, but it was was a good ride for me down memory lane.

    Depends on what equipment you are going to use to check with. Here is one method using an auto lensometer

    I trained with those videos, I would love to be able to get my hands on these and convert them to files. Super cheesy, but that is what sometimes helps people, like me, to remember things better.
