    Is Essilor dissing their Physio lens?

    I'm hearing from up front that VSP's drop down list will not show Physio Trans 8 (or the prior version for that matter).

    Any scoop? Are they turning down the faucet?

    Comfort 2 is available with Trans 8.

    Yes... the Physio lens is not available in Trans 8. Physio DRX, Physio Enhanced and Physio W3 are all available in Generation 8.

    Yes, you are right. We called our Essilor rep.

    Oh well. It doesn't bode well for the lens.

    It's a really old design, and I haven't dispensed one in years. No problems here.

    I am of the opinion (and you know what that's worth, ha) that the Physio design is what all the following jazzy lenses have been based on.

    SO THERE!
