Cool Optical Lab Site

on August 7th, 2007 | Filed under Optoblog

I needed to know what brand/style of PAL a patient was wearing, but I’ve always been too cheap to pay $36 for the Progressive Lens Identifier book from the OLA, so I searched to find an online version. An optiboard thread linked to Laramy-K Optical’s website. They have their own progressive lens chart, complete with laser markings.

And they even have a blog (although no RSS feed for posts, but curiously they have one for comments). They had even talked about me! That reminds me, I need to find some time to draw more cartoons. Ever since I stopped working at Lenscrafters, I haven’t had time to draw.

Anyway, Laramy-K gets my vote for one of the coolest optical lab websites.

  1. Thanks for the kudos, Doc! I’ll send you an OLA PAL Identifier. 😉 I’ve been neglecting the blog lately and remiss on the RSS issue. We are in the process of moving it over to WordPress which is more conducive to RSS feeds and such. Keep up the good work! We need a stronger blogging community in the optical world.

    Take care

  2. Thanks for the tip on Laramy-k. Their Progressive Lens chart was great!

  3. The new blog is up and running complete with RSS feeds.

    Did you get your PAL Identifier?

    Thanks again

  4. Yes, Thank you for that. Although, with your online PAL identifier, who needs a dead tree one? 😉
    But seriously, we’ll put it to good use, and I appreciate the gesture.

    And I noticed the RSS feed and am already subscribed! Good job!
