Below is a list of the most common questions about VCD Labs. Browse the list below, or filter by clicking on the appropriate tags.
What is the Abbe value of Resolution?
Abbe value is the same for all poly. It was thought for many years that the abbe accounted for the patient complaints regarding optical quality related to poly as there were no other variable that could be adjusted until our process of removing the stress/distortion that caused the birefringence. This technology “discovery” resulted in the elimination of patient complaints. The normal Trivex is 1.53 index and thus Resolution at 1.598/1.60 is thinner.
Is there a warranty on the Complete Eyewear frames?
Complete Eyewear has a limited 1 year warranty against manufacturer defects. See Terms and Conditions for other details.
What happens if a frame breaks and the Rx is still good? Can frames be reordered individual or is the complete job replaced?
Frames can be reordered and replaced if manufacturers defect at no charge.There is a non-manufacturing replacement $6 charge for frame and $13 for overnight shipping. Ideally, the frame can be replaced out of the kit and then the frame can be reordered with reduced shipping.
How many times can lenses be replaced under the PAL AR 24 month warranty?
One time – at this cost any warranty is a bargain since most high end AR coatings like PFO’s don’t have an issue with scratches.

Will we be able to offer staff webinars to train on lens design?
Yes! Contact us to schedule a time for training for your staff.
