Executive Trifocals no longer being produced?

    For reading the computer screen (20 inches), I sure like
    executive-style lens -- lets me look from left to
    right by merely turning the eyeballs -- not the head.

    (For computer, bifocals with reading on bottom and
    computer-distance on top. For distance -- look over
    the top...)

    For driving, trifocals (executive-style) -- top for distance,
    mid for odometer, etc, bottom for reading maps, etc.



    Now, my optician tells me that they no longer make
    executive trifocals.

    TRUE?

    (Only in U.S.? (partly, wholly) Worldwide?)

    Anyone know if a manufacturer still has a bunch
    in stock, ie haven't run out yet (and didn't
    melt them down to reuse the glass!)





    And, WHY did they do this?


    Thanks!

    I must agree here. Thick, heavy, ugly just what all my patients ask
    for..........NOT.

    Get the new physio 360. They are working really well with computer
    users.

    Maybe -- but you can wash and then rub them with anything --
    no scratches. That is one BIG benefit.
    Do they still make BI-focal exec glass lenses?
    Where (on net) can I look at these two lenses -- ie a picture describing
    where the lines/curves are?


    Thanks!

    A genral question about use of "tinyurl.com":


    That (just now created?) tinyurl.com "directory" (/jq7ky) --
    how long will that "url" continue to be valid for?

    Thanks!
