    Wow. Not terribly surprising, though.

    My understanding is that this is Zeiss's decision. Zeiss pulled all free form back to only in their labs, and now have done the same with the rest of their product line.

    Indeed? I figured this almost certainly came from the Walman side. Huh.

    I just got a call from WVA lab 5 minutes ago and our rep said they cant offer us any zeiss products anymore and all jobs must be ordered through a Zeiss lab. Sounds like this is the case for all labs across the country. Some strange business decisions from Zeiss in the last couple of years.
