    any suggestions

    I have an aphakic patient with this rx: OD +11.75 +0.75 X 118
    OS +13.00 +0.75 X 045 ADD +3.50

    Our lab is saying the only lenses available for this patient is a CR39 FT28 Lenticular? Is this the case? Really we can't get a thinner material? The patient is very young, and I would love to make them look better cosmetically if possible.

    Please advise....

    Thank you!

    That might not be aspheric, and it has to be, or the near and peripheral vision will be poor. Short of CLs, the best spectacle lens for acuity will be the Essilor Super Modular. Keep the decentration at 2mm or less, in a roundish frame with a textbook bridge fit.

    Hope this helps,

    Thats nice that your lab told you that at least. I have refit a few 1.67 aspheric st28 from other places. Doing what Robert said made them thank me profusely.
