OptiSource Introduces Their New Job Tray Cleaner

OptiSource has developed another first-of-its-kind solution that removes dried polish from job trays, and restores them to like-new condition. Cleaning caked-up polish from job trays is a near-impossible task. Alternatives such as tray inserts, industrial washing machines, or replacing dirty job trays have been the only available options. With OptiSource’s new formula, the lifetime of a job tray is extended and the problem of scratching lenses from built-up polish is finally eliminated.  The new Job Tray Cleaner works instantly by using a simple spread-on and wipe-off process, and is good for both traditional and robotic-style job trays.

“Scratched lenses are a prolific pain-point for any surfacing customer”, states Daryl Squicciarini, president of OptiSource. “Our Job Tray Cleaner eliminates one more variable contributing to scratched lens remakes.” The new formula has been specially developed not only to remove dried polish from job trays, but also from any other polish-laden surface, making it a must-have for all labs.

OptiSource Introduces Kodak Lens Folding Reading Glasses

OptiSource International has launched a new breed of folding reading glasses that combines quality and style under the trusted Kodak Lens brand. The compact folding reading glasses feature patented telescoping temples, resilient spring hinges, and comfortable built-in nose pads. The design technology allows the glasses to easily fold into the size of a Zippo® lighter and carried inside a stylish and durable Kodak Lens branded case. These are the only folding reading glasses in the market that can bear the name and lens technology of one of the world’s most trusted consumer brands.

“Kodak represents over 100 years of quality, innovation, and integrity” states Daryl Squicciarini, president of OptiSource. “Our Kodak Lens Folding Reading Glasses will bring our customers new add-on sales, especially for newly diagnosed Presbyopes that are reluctant to carry full sized reading glasses”. The Kodak Lens folding readers not only offer the ultimate in convenience and functionality, but they also look great with their unisex design. Squicciarini also states, “The secret to the elegance of the folding design is in the ingenious telescoping temples. They don’t require any bulky hardware or mid-temple folding”. The micro-size case easily stashes in pockets, purses, glove boxes, and more. Reading glasses are available in black, gunmetal, and brown in powers ranging from +1.50 to +3.00.

OptiSource Introduces the Lens Inspection Station

OptiSource International has developed a first-of-its kind 3-in-1 lens inspection station. This compact machine includes a PAL Identifier which brings invisible PAL markings into focus; a Polariscope that identifies hidden stress in mounted lenses and injection molded lens blanks; and a Final Inspection lamp with a white light that allows the user to identify any abnormalities in the finished eyewear.  This product is built with an ergonomic counter-height design which allows the user to comfortably view mounted or un-mounted lenses. 

OptiSource’s pursuit of innovation continues to provide the optical trade with solution-oriented products. “When our customers requested a new PAL Identifier, we intuitively considered what other devices they currently use or need while dispensing”, states Daryl Squicciarini, president of OptiSource. “Based on that analysis, we developed a multi-use machine for the same price or less than a PAL Identifier only, without requiring any additional counter space.” The Lens Inspection Station features interchangeable lenses that can be rearranged by the user, and an LED light source which eliminates the need for replacement bulbs.
