    Fit them in a modern lens, with correct measurements, tell them to wear them for two weeks. Done.

    AO Compact is now under the Synchrony brand. Contact your Zeiss rep for details. In the meantime, there are multiple FF options available to fit PAL as low as 13-14mm. A much better option than the Compact, IMO. However, most FF options are 4 drop, not 2 drop. Hoya Amplitude is a 2 drop, as well, and may be an alternative. An upgrade is the Amplitude IQ.
    I bend light. That is what I do.
