    Labs

    Ok, best labs for product quality and pricing, can be independent! I have experience with DBL, Hoya, POG, what else is out there?

    I only recommend Midland Optical. We've been using them exclusively for 20 years. Not the cheapest, not the fastest, but the best. I've dallied with a dozen other labs over the years, including the cheapest and the fastest. Yup, they were cheaper and faster, but we all know the "cheaper, faster, better, pick two" adage. Midland has been around 60 years and is still run by their founder. Their customer service team is ON IT and actually knows their optical stuff without having to "ask the lab manager". They are more than 50% Essilor partner lab, but so far they are allowed to operate as they always have without too much corporate meddling.

    I recommend Cherry Optical in Green Bay, WI. That is the best lab I've ever used, and I have tried a bunch of them.
