    Searching for a new lab which produces leaded glass lenses

    I'm searching for a new lab to use for leaded glass lenses. I've used Aura Visual Concepts in the past, so if you get any part of the job done through them, I'm not interested.

    If you have a link to a thread covering this same topic, feel free to post it, as I was unable to locate any useful information when I searched.

    Try three rivers they have come trough for me in the past with things like 1.80 glass. I haven't heard of leaded glass in ages what do you use it for?

    I'm needing it for radiology glasses.

    Thanks for the input, I'll give them a call and see if they'll be able to produce what I'll need!

    I called them up, and I think I've found my future lab. Thanks so much!

    No problem, I'm happy to help. They rocked it out when I used them. They also have what they call the O seg. It's a blended bifocal only back side and in any material.
    I should have though of the radiology part.

    LOL, win a few lose a few...taking a month off for back surgery had to be done. We tried to get everything out the door, but there were a couple that refused to get done. We did the best we could under the circumstances.

    Well, you never notified us of any delays.

    Communication would've made a huge difference, if any effort had been made.

    Actually, we did. I've got a copy of the e-mail I sent notifying you that the job would be delayed. As well as responses to the many others you sent (which seemed to totally ignore the original e-mail I sent).

    I never received a copy, and you never once referred to said email in our correspondence.

    Will you send me a screen capture copy of that sent email?
