L&T: Special Report

Dec
2010

The 2011 Annual Resource Guide



NEED TO KNOW INFO
Thinking about replacing that old tint tank? In the market for the latest patternless edger and remote tracer? The suppliers listed in this guide distribute every type of equipment for in-office lens processing, as well as tools and instruments for the dispensary. Whether you’re a solo practitioner or the buyer for a retail optical chain, you’ll find a source here that can fulfill all your finishing, surfacing, lens fabrication and dispensing product needs. Doctors and dispensers are fortunate to have an almost unlimited array of options for meeting virtually any type of vision correction or cosmetic need. Yet the continual addition of new products by lens suppliers (and the elimination of very few products) also makes it challenging to keep track of all the choices. L&T’s handy, at-a-glance listing gives you contact information about lens suppliers as well as a quick rundown on the lens styles and materials they offer. Contact the suppliers to find out which wholesale laboratories or stock lens distributors carry their products.
