    Question Can you identify this progressive?

    "below a diamond is a circle Which contains a horizontal diameter line then a vertical line down from the centre of the diameter line then a line from the right of the vertical radius line that follows the radius and diameter in that quadrant shaped like the letter r"

    I don't see anything in my progressive lens identifier that I can match with this description. Anyone have any ideas?

    My only guess would be the Ovation, but I am not sure about that.

    Thanks, but the Ovation uses circles instead of diamonds on the 180 with a funny S-shaped symbol below.

    Not sure if I understand your description, but look thru this chart:

    Sorry, but that's the description that was sent to me. It took me a few times reading it through before I got the gist too. Essentially, it's saying the lens has diamond shapes on the 180 with a circle below. The circle has what amounts to a T-shape on the inside of it with and r-shape in the lower right corner (that's how I interpret it anyway).

    That's my chart, btw. Glad to know people are using it. :D

    I have recently been stumped. The lens has on one side the add, just like every other lens. On the other side there is a 2.45. The best I can come up with is the Progressive Life 2 (even though their symbol is different on the chart). I know this doctor like the Life 2. I was also getting a lens that said "Ad", and nothing else. I know that doctor uses a private lab.
