The article presents solutions to some common challenges and problems encountered by lens laboratories. To deal with separation of the blank from the lens caused by vibration, iCoat Co. trims down larger blanks for extreme curve combination in the edger and then generate them. To avoid slipping while edging in flat-top bifocals, iCoat Co. places a second half-eye adhesive pad on top of the seg line before blocking.
