    That's odd. We do a lot Trivex and we haven't had any issues getting our lenses in. Essilor products and lab.

    Local independent lab, only 7x28 clear affected... Essilor lab can't seem to get a clear SV -3.00 trivex and said they're all BO indefinitely! It's insane.

    We are still unable to get our hands on any lined Trivex product. More recently, Poly 7x28 has been an issue along with some 1.67 lined product. Has anyone out there had the same issues with the Poly and 1.67?

    No issues with poly products. I have 3 patients who are all waiting for 7x28 trivex. Told them it could be Jan by the time they come in and they are all happy to wait. Hate to do that. Offered poly but they all want trivex. So they are waiting... and waiting and waiting.
