Working a prescription into a lens is akin to shaping and polishing a fine piece of wood. And that’s just part of the process.
Prescription glasses take many stages of processing before they are ready to be sent to the customer. From pulling the lenses to grinding the prescription, edging to coating, there is an array of different processes that must be carefully completed in a specific order.
Prescription eye labs such as ours must be equipped with a prescription generator, fining and polishing machines, edging machines, coating machines, lens tinters, and a lens meter. The machinery must also be constantly calibrated, coolant and polish replaced and filtered, and lenses inspected and reinspected. To keep an optical lab running correctly is like maintaining a complex machine.
Your prescription lenses are inspected several times throughout the process to ensure that any errors are caught right away so they can be amended. It is very important to us to get your prescription glasses out as quickly as possible, and to get them out right. If we make a mistake, we do our best to discover and repair it right away to minimize delays.
Our lab produces thousands of prescription lenses a week and even more non-prescription. We have polishing and fining machines for glass and plastics so that we can create almost any sort of prescription in-house, and we have some of the most advanced edging machines in existence today.
Because there are many moving parts to the creation of prescription lenses, and because many people must be involved, we do our best to engender a sense of teamwork and accomplishment here at Rx-Safety, and we hold office contests and parties regularly to celebrate the accomplishments and dedication of our team.
