    Interested in learning more about Camber?

    Good Morning Optiboard!

    Over the last few months there has been some buzz about the new lens technology developed jointly between Younger and IOT called Camber. For those of you who don't know about Camber, its a variable front curve PAL which combines the advantages of conventional progressives, and the advantages to digital compensated designs. To get more details, including which labs are currently approved to produce these lenses I invite you to check out www.camberlens.com and let us know what you think!

    I see Camber also made the cover of the March/April Optical Lab Products Magazine ( http://opticallabproducts.epubxp.com/title/13850 )

    I have met with a VSP rep who lauds this design. I've been given a big ol' blank.

    Better than making the cover of a trade magazine, we have the Camber making it to the patient level with incredible success! You probably won't get the initial WOW if the patient is already wearing an IOT design done correctly, but after wearing the Camber, we have had comments that it is hard to go back. The design speaks for itself.

    Nothing like resurrecting an old thread, but I distinctly recall the VSP rep I used to work with at my last job telling me about the benefits of the "cascading variable base curves" of their PLX line. Basically, all of the benefits I recall the VSP rep mentioning read verbatim from IOT's website of the Camber lens in addition to the availability of mobile versions of their PALs.

    Since VSP discontinued the PLX line in favor of their Via line (probably in attempt to simplify PAL ordering, what with all those variable corridor lengths of the PLX), I wonder if the Via is also an IOT design? Recent posts here on the ol' Optiboard suggest that VSP does not work in an official capacity with IOT, but I wouldn't be surprised if Via is just a re-branded Alpha series.
