    Partner Labs?

    IOT you have gained my intrigue, but I am unable to find a lab that offers your product other than re-branding the designs as their own. Is these a list of labs that offer these designs that can be posted on here? I am really trying to find pricing information but I assume that when the lab brands it as their in house they tact on a little surcharge for that as well.

    Unfortunately, IOT is not going to give you a list of the labs using their designs. They have a core belief that they should keep their customer list confidential.

    IOT's initial plan was to have labs brand it as their own product. They didn't want to create their own brand. They did come up with brands in order to obtain VSP approval. They didn't want every lab to have to go through the process of getting verified.

    If you ask, some labs will probably tell you what they are using, and others will not. We have had great success with the IOT designs, and will be happy to discuss them with you.

    James is complete spot on. IOT has been a great partner to work with, and the only way you are going to find out who makes their designs is by asking each lab to see if they will tell you who their lens designer is.

    It's actually refreshing to see a company like IOT, who was virtually unknown a few years ago, has jumped to the point of rivaling the biggest in the industry.
