    Reccomended short / ultra short corridor PALs

    Hi there, the thread title says it all. What are your recommendations for frames with with very shallow B (31mm)?

    Unless the frame sits really high up on your customer's nose there is no reason you couldn't fit any progressive lens, no need to use a short corridor. 31mm is not a "shallow" B, generally a short corridor progressive has a seg of 13-16mm with a B under 28. You can fit 18-20 seg in a 31mm frame pretty comfortably, but you would know this if you had been fitting progressive lenses for even 6 months. I suspect you are not in the field of optics in any way, best of luck to you.

    Knows all the parlance of the industry (sort of) but then asks a nonsensical question. Website designer for an online Canadian store?

    no need for apologies, this is an excellent combination second only to vinegar on fries.

    FWIW this is a classic lunor frame that is padless. Sits on the bridge of those nose. Seg height 15mm.

    It depends on the Add, use, etc., but one option would be the IOT Ultrashort.
