ABSTRACT
This articles suggests ways in which an optical laboratory business can cut costs and stretch its money. Among these suggestions are daily checking of coolant concentration using a hand-held refractometer and the use of pads and polishes that work together. Products offered by some leading consumable manufacturers that help save money include DAC Vision's Lumina Polish Pads and Quattro Advance Lens Polish and PractiCool Coolant from Practical Systems Inc. These products aim to help lessen spoilage while increasing surface quality.
