    Obscure question.

    Anyone know if the scalpel Asian fit lenses were 8.75 curve like non-Asian?

    I got a lead on some and I know the standard lenses make XX donors..... Hoping the Asian ones would too.

    Thanks that's helpful.
    So what differentiates the Asian scalpel?

    They aren't any wider? I thought back then Asian fit lenses didn't fit standard frames. Hmmm.

    What I thought too...

    I need an authoritative answer! Anyone got sets of each lens to compare?!

    Being wider shouldn't affect the cutting..since it's the base curve that you're mainly concerned with,should it?

    Good point. I basically want to confirm that Scalpel Asia lenses are usable for XX cuts.

    confirmed. done it before. just the nosebombs for this model. there are models with a flatter profile categorized asian fit, of whose the lenses vary slightly in fit, not curvature. cant recall which model right now tho...

    Superb - thank you.

    Well don't forget the Badman. 8.75 in regular but curvature 6 (?) I think in Asia fit! Don't want that to happen when I cut for XX!
