The Vision Council has announced the launch of its new Electronic Progressive Identifier Catalog (EPIC), available for the first time in a digital format. The catalog is the industry-standard guide to the identifying marks engraved on progressive addition lenses, and is available for ECP use. Previously, the catalog was available for order in hard copy only.
This latest edition contains graphics for more than 350 lens designs distributed in the United States and Canada, showing the markings that identify the lens supplier, lens name, lens material, filters, and corridor lengths. Diagrams include the relative position of the fitting cross, as well as the lens suppliers' recommended minimum fitting height.
The catalog also contains several indexes, listing the lenses according to: identifying symbols, lens supplier name, minimum recommended height, lens name, extended range of add power, and custom progressive designs.
The new EPIC can be found here.
