    Coronavirus and your supply chain

    Having been retired from the business for some time now I am wondering if you have experienced any disruption in the supply chain from China due to the coronavirus.

    Some of the modo product coming from China (eco) has been delayed, ostensibly because of coronavirus

    It won’t be just frames. It will affect all optical commodities.
    I bend light. That is what I do.

    First the tarriffs , now the virus. Paying more and waiting longer. Can't even get quotes till the 17th.

    Not only optical. Devices and instruments are also significantly delayed. Most resellers in the US are clearing inventory.

    It's the auto industry that's really sweating. There are a lot of parts that are only made in one or two Chinese factories, and you can't build a car with 99.9% of the parts.

    The Doc's parents are on the ship at our practice. So it's affecting our office in a different way.
