    Just a few questions from a new lurker. Does anyone know if Bausch and
    Lomb will produce a toric division II type contact for the PureVision
    brand? I guess 6.0 is as high as they go.

    Another quick question. My prescription is -7.75od, +1.00 cyl, and 98
    axis and -9.25os, +2.00 cyl and 84 axis. How much would I benefit from
    going from a 1.67 index to a 1.70 or 1.74 index lense?

    Thanks a bunch

    1) PureVision is coming out in a generation 2 material sometime soon
    (1-2 years).

    2) Definitely worth the money to go to 1.74. Your script is in the
    stock range for Nikon lenses, so should only cost ~$350.00 (Oz
    dollars). Made a pair in -10.00 and -10.50 the other day and they look
    brilliant. Make sure you keep the frame small and you want the frame pd
    to match your pd. Frame pd is the eye size and bridge added together.
    Your pd=64, frame pd=64: glasses are the thinnest you will get. Your pd
    =64, frame pd=72: lenses are getting thick at the edge.
