    Specialty Chemistry Clips

    We have a patient that has a neuro issue that affects her pupils making her constantly fully dilated along with other issues affecting sensitivity. We are using a combination of several devices to accommodate all of her needs. However, I am needing a special clip, preferably a chem clip with a 7-10% transmittance (near black-out).

    I know folks with the Me1200's have been edging special clips like regressive readers and all kinds of fun things.

    Anyone know of a lab that is willing and able to cut a clip outside eyenavisions perimeters and process this for me?

    Both my patient and myself appreciate any and all help.

    What is the transmittance on their gray lens with silver mirror? I have a feeling it may not be *quite* that low, but it is the darkest in their "normal" line. Not to say something else couldn't be fabricated on a custom basis - which I believe is what Barry is offering.

    Joe Zewe is an optiboard member and a major purveyor or Chemistries Clips. Maybe you could bring him into the conversation.

    Thanks everyone for the responses, our current lab came back and changed there mind and said they would process the job for us. However, I believe there is a decent chance of the clips being "unacceptable" so I will most likely be in touch Barry.

    Also, I believe the darkest standard clip is 15%
