    Lab delays

    Is anyone else experiencing LONG delays in getting lenses from your lab? I have been using the same lab for several years now and have been quite happy with them until recently. They are days behind in getting me uncuts. Is anyone else experiencing long delays? Where is this large influx of orders coming from that has them so backed up? I am way down in volume, so it ain't coming from me!
    If not please send me the contact info to labs you are using.
    Thanks.

    I am adding a week to any pre covid, time frame for deliveries.

    I'll explain there's a supply chain disruption and that UPS and Fed Ex are not guaranteeing next day or second day delivery these days.

    Also, many labs have had to pare back the workforce and even those still working probably have employees out from catching it or having to quarantine because of contact tracing orders.

    We are having delays as well, just expect the delays to get worse if things here in the US go south again with COVID.

    I love it, not the virus but the delays they are causing. Our customers in Puerto Rico are telling me they are waiting 4 weeks. Using our system it's same day processing.

    Glad you can revel in others misery Don. Do you make posts that aren't self serving?
