    Is Walman Truly Independent ?

    Why is Walman pressuring us to use Varilux instead of other brands if they are independent ?

    Everyone and their mom are giving deals on the X so that when the promo is over you are stuck with figuring out what to do with those patients. Do you try and switch them in your 'everyday' lens or do you bite the bullet and now pay the hefty price tag that was neatly hidden behind those deals?
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?

    I've never been pushed to purchase any brand over another by Walman.

    It started as a BOGO option but the most recent pitch was 100 pairs free (excluding upgrades) for 30 days.

    No pressure here also, although I do hear second-hand grumblings that their partnership with Zeiss is not as strong as it once was.
