    Industry drops Slab off for crown glass???

    Told by my 2 major labs an order for FT's clear glass with a bi-centric grind (slab off) is no longer being done. Only available in glass on progressives.

    True???

    Did you check with Vision Dynamics? They were still doing them as of about 2 months ago.

    Thanks for the reply Bill.

    My Doc wants me to only use our labs.

    Waiting to hear back from Jason at Luzerne if Trivex is a viable option. I've had as good an experience as any other material for resisting scratches and I may switch the patient to it.

    Just wondering why they can't do a FT but can do a prog... seems backwards to me. What is the reasoning behind that?
