    SolaMax

    There is a golden opportunity to increase market
    share similar to the Luxottica situation several years
    ago.
    Essilor and Hoya have forced independents to choose labs
    based on authorized distribution of proprietary
    products due to ownership of wholesale labs by Essilor and
    Hoya.
    Luxottica did a similar transaction with the purchase of
    Lenscrafters. Most independents stopped carrying Luxottica
    product and switched to other frame wholesalers.
    Sola
    has introduced the Sola Max product and even sent a
    letter to all independents saying the Sola Max is priced
    like a CR 39.
    Upon calling numerous wholesale labs,
    the Sola Max is being priced as a hi index
    lens.
    WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    PRICE THE LENS TO
    COMPETE AGAINST VARILUX AND HOYA AND GET THE ENORMOUS
    POTENTIAL CONVERSION NOW WHILE THE INDEPENDENTS ARE READY
    TO SWITCH.
    WE DO NOT LIKE BEING TOLD WHERE TO BUY
    PRODUCTS.

      While SOL has fallen to 5 from 40, LUX has risen from 9
      to 23. There certainly has been some frustration re
      LUX and Lenscrafters and the Essilor and now Hoya
      move into the lab business may present opportunities
      for SOL, but the LUX and Essilor business models
      cannot be so swiftly set aside as your comments seem to
      do.
