    Looking for G-15 color in polarized progressive lenses

    Any suggestions? I called my lab and was told that the Younger Image comes in G-15, but I can't find confirmation on their website. I was also told that a lens called "Discovery" comes in G-15, but I can't find anything about that online.

    I'll probably just use a Gray-3 and ask the lab to add some green to it, but I'd rather use one that's already the right color.

    Thanks!

    Vision Ease has Coppertone in Green. Very close to G15. You should be able to order it in a free form PAL.

    Any tintable Gray 3 lens can be changed to G-15 by a 5 second dip in yellow dye.

    All the Essilor full backside progressives (at least) are available polarized G-15 (Varilux DRx, Ideal, all Shamir designs) https://www.essilorusa.com/content/d...ty%20Chart.pdf

    KBCo is the only manufacturer of a conventional PAL in G15. The Image says it comes in 'green' but that is actually referring to Drivewear. As mentioned above, if you are going digital, you should have plenty of choices of PAL style.
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?

    KBCO or the Coppertone are the best

    Also Xperio looks very close to the Rayban G-15 lenses?

    Discovery is a Three Rivers Optical House lens - a molded one that nobody should ever use anymore. Don't do molded progressives in Polarized anymore, there is absolutely no reason unless you are surfacing them yourself and absolutely have to. Even if you insist on using molded lenses for traditional PAL, use digital backside for polar.
