    GlassesUSA "G-vision"??

    We have a high myope who is preferring his glasses he purchased from glassesusa.com last year over the new 1.74 lenses he purchased from us this year.

    I see that glassesusa uses "1.67 index G-vision Ultra Thin Lenses". What in the world is "G-vision"?! I know glassesusa is not using a digital design for those prices.

    Anyone have any insight?

    After you double check the pd's and OC and dot them up and make sure they are looking through the OC I would check panto. Then check to see if there is a difference in the base curve, maybe the 1.67 is aspheric?

    Yes, I think their 'special' g lens is prob just aspheric. PD and OC checked. Panto's a good call, will check.
