It’s Derby Time, Let’s Run for the Roses!

As we are located in Kentucky, come early May it’s all about the horses, Derby horses to be exact. This year will be the 145th running of the $2 million  dollar world famous Kentucky Derby. What some people have dubbed the “most exciting two minutes in sports.” With the singing of My Old Kentucky Home, the array of outlandish derby hats and the drinking of the traditional mint julep, the first Saturday in May is always an event.

Happy Derby Day from Optical Dynamics! (throwback 2016)

Cast Digital Lenses In-House

Offer your patients one-hour lenses while cutting lab costs in half with the Q-2100R Digital Lens System from Optical Dynamics.

Do you want to offer patients same-day lenses cast in-house? Do you want to reduce your lab bills? If so, an in-office lens casting system might be the answer. The Q-2100R Digital Lens System from Optical Dynamics can help grow your business while driving down costs by up to 50%.

FREE-FORM TECHNOLOGY
The Optical Dynamics Q-2100R Digital Lens System incorporates free-form technology into the design and manufacture of the progressive and single vision molds it supplies with the unit. In this way, the lenses made with these digital molds benefit from the features of free-form manufacturing. One advantage is the increased surface accuracy of the lens designs, another is the increased power accuracy of the prescription created. The outcome is better surface quality and more accuracy in the curves generated through much tighter tolerances.

HOW IT WORKS
To make a lens, free-form glass molds are injected with the liquid monomer using the Q-2100R Flash Fill System. The Q-2100R is computerized and easy for staff to master. After the Rx has been entered, the appropriate molds are loaded. The machine scrubs the molds under high pressure to ensure cleanliness, and if an anti-reflective (AR) treatment is to be applied, it is done at this stage. The molds are assembled and injected with liquid polymer. The material is then cured in a light chamber, followed by a post-curing chamber, after which your AR Rx lenses are done. The whole process takes 30 to 90 minutes

LENS OPTIONS
Optical Dynamics offers a family of premium progressive, bifocal, and single vision lenses that are custom molded to a patient’s exact prescription. These are produced using a variety of progressive lens design molds, and both spherical and aspherical FT28 molds as well as aspheric single vision molds. Another option is atoric back molds for minus lenses to further control curves and distortion for myopes. The company’s proprietary liquid monomer, called clearLIGHT PLUS, is available in a clear form. It also has three photochromic options named sunSMART II grey, sunSMART II brown, and a new extra active sunglass version called ultraSUN II. All the lenses, according to Optical Dynamics, have an impact resistance that meets FDA standards even when cast to a 1.5mm center thickness, work well with drill mounts, and are tintable.

If you’re looking to increase profits, reduce turnaround time, and add in-house lens casting, the Q-2100R may be your answer.
