    Best IOT progressive for hyperopes?

    I'm wondering about Optiboard members' experience with IOT progressives dispensed to hyperopes, not including Camber lenses. Which designs, Alpha or Basic, seem to work best with low, moderate, and high hyperopes?

    Alpha 45 has a very low rejection rate.

    I almost always use Camber, but if not, the Alpha H65 or Alpha H45. Why not Camber?

    There's a multi-pair deal through Cherry Optical on Alphas but not with Camber.

    Camber Steady is too narrow at near, If your customer is a big cell phone user use the Camber Mobile...No disappointments, I assure you!

    I've used the H45 a bunch of times but was wondering about the H25, which is designed more for larger near fields.

    Thanks Glenn. The Mobile seems similar to the InTouch.

    Nope and I can't imagine any of my patients would accept it as their only full time PAL. Do you offer a discount to your patients getting an Alpha series lens vs a Camber Alpha lens? Do you tell them there is a better lens(Camber) available but it's not this months special?

    We use the H25 quite often when customer wants a wider near. All have been happy,
