    What is the layout of the engravings?

    If the PC is above the U nasally (and it's using the U instead of the circle for the layout engraving), then it's an IOT design from US Optical.

    If the U is below the circle nasally, and PC is above the circle temporally, then it's a Unity, although I'm not sure about the 9.
    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.

    Thanks for the responses!

    The PC is above the circle temporally and the U is below the circle nasally....furthermore the 9 is 1-2 mm to the right of the U, and vertically, the top of the 9 begins about the middle of the U and extends a good bit lower than the U (it is sort of diagonal downward to the right of the U).

    I'm pretty sure it is a Unity, but if anyone knows which one it would be greatly appreciated.....we have a new patient in a high plus Rx that is wearing this design currently and is very happy with it, I don't want to rock the boat.

    The only thing I am seeing that could be it is the Ultimate HD lens with the 9 being the design number. If it isn't that then I am stumped

    It depends on which lab you got it from. IOT allows you to rename their lens designs to whatever you want (within reason, you can't, for example, call it the Comfort or VIP).

    If the lab that made it stuck with the IOT name (Ultimate), then the 9 is probably the corridor length, which would mean it's their Ultra Short design.
