Loss of savings can result from high repair bills if your equipment is not properly maintained, follow- ing proper procedures, there are very little dangers to employees. There is misinformation regard- ing toxic waste or air quality. Our coolant system addresses this. –Matt Vulich, AIT With modern patternless tech- nology, there are no operator risks. MEI's milling technology ensures a reliable process avoid- ing lens breakage. MEI uses mill- ing tools that have a gentle action, protecting the lens and coating from damage. All of MEI's equip- ment is safe and complies with regulations in each country. –Fabio Verzeri, MEI There are no risks associated with lens spoilage. Coburn's edgers have a patented axial mode that eliminates lens slippage, even with the best hydrophobic coatings. duced by MEI, edges with no sizing or axis issues, completely changing the ROI equation. –Fabio Verzeri, MEI ROI is a two-part equation. How many jobs need to be processed daily? What will the future of my business look like if I don't pro- vide the services my competitors do? With a range of options and price points, there is a system that is right for you. The more elabo- rate system, the more choices you can offer patients. More choices equal more profit. Drill mounts, high wraps and interchangeable lens style frames can propel prof- its quickly. -Kevin Paddy, National Optronics What are the risks (spoilage of ex- pensive lenses and coatings, dan- gers to employees, conforming to rules and regulations, etc.) when it comes to edging in-house, and how do I overcome them? Edging hydrophobic AR lenses requires a system designed for these lenses or the recommend- ed blocking pads. When edg- ing high-index lenses, consider a milling system or attaching a filter to capture the dust, which will also alleviate the odor. While spoilage should be calculated into the ROI, proper procedures should eliminate any spoilage. –Robin Rhodes, Essilor Instruments After taking on responsibility of the finished product, your prima- Our tracers use 3D technology for sizing and placement calculations, eliminating spoilage associated with 2D tracing that shapes one side of the frame and flips it for the other. As long as you follow the doctor's prescription, you'll be within industry standards. –Alex Incera, Coburn Technologies I'm not sure my office is equipped for in-house edging. What kind of infrastructure do I need? You can edge with an all-in-one system in less than three square feet or up to six square feet for sys- tems that have two or more pieces. Most systems operate with recy- cled water by means of a pump and tank positioned directly be- low the edger. A vent or filtration system will help with any dust, and a 20 amp dedicated outlet meets all electrical requirements. –Robin Rhodes, Essilor Instruments Most in-house edging equipment systems operate on standard 110v power. Some require water sys- tems, while others use vacuum sys- tems. A complete in-house finish- ing area can be as little as 50 square feet. A sturdy countertop will work great, and manufacturers can rec- ommend a room layout or provide specifically designed cabinets. –Kevin Paddy, National Optronics HIGH QUALITY IMAGING SOLUTION FOR YOUR EYE EXAM The perfect corneal expert : * precIse diagnosis * effOrTless contact lens fitting * AdvAnced Tear film Analysis * UnIQUe dry eye screening Learn More Today ! 855-393-4647 Photo courtesy of Coburn Technologies, Inc.
