I would not switch anyone to it who wasn't already wearing an equivalent or more basic design lens. The Max is not intended as a top-tier design and will not perform for those expecting "HD" vision.
    Is it similarly priced to the DRx lenses?

    Just a tiny bit more than the Comfort W2 and the same as Physio DRx.

I would like to start offering the X to more patients who seem like they are good fit but our patients have mostly all been fit with the various iterations of the Comfort for years and years, so I hesitate to try to shake things up.
    Fairly high acceptance rate- first time PAL wearers seem to really like it for the ease of positioning. I've gotten pickier about who I put in the Max, because Pete is definitely right, this is a 20/happy lens. Not for the perfectionist patients, or those who are sensitive to swim and distortion. Going from a Comfort DS to the Max I have had no issues.

    Good to know! I have fitted about three first time PAL wearers in it so far. So far so good but with first time PALs it can sometimes be hit or miss.
