EPIC – The Electronic Progressive Identifier Catalog


The Electronic Progressive Identifier Catalog (EPIC) is the industry’s online guide for identifying lens designs based on their marked engraving.

This electronic catalog contains graphics for more than 500 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.

The lens 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, materials and custom designs.

The EPIC catalog is designed to be updated immediately by the lens manufacturer/designer.
