As pioneering laboratory opticians, we at Muller Optical recognize a growing need for the development and fabrication of unique or unusual optical lenses to meet the special vision needs of patients. Muller Optical’s special laboratory is the “can-do” place to get those unusual lenses that others may tell you are unavailable or “impossible to grind”. Please remember, if you can prescribe them, Muller Optical can fabricate them. Muller Optical’s reputation has been built by pursuing the motto of, “We can do it better! Today”.
Please scroll down the alphabetical list below to view a sample of vision problems and the lens solutions we create in our on-site optical laboratory. Also included are some unusual lenses and their functions. I’d like to consult with you regarding your difficult or unusual prescriptions. Fax or E-mail your prescription to our laboratory (Attn: Edward Muller) or call me for more information. Please note: To inquire about a product please use this email address

A series of base curves, thicknesses and vertex distances to create binocularity (success is dependent on age, refractive error, v.a., alternator, varied suppression).
Isokonic lenses (myo form) to correct image disparity, Retinal Image size difference’s related to aniseikonia produced by anisometropia caused by genetics, cataracts, implants, or trauma. (Objects that appear to be different sizes from Right to Left eye)
Neutralize prismatic effect related to anisometropia in the distance gaze (both horizontal and vertical meridians). With a series of curves and thicknesses we can correct retinal disparity and create binocularity in a pair of useful and cosmetically pleasing glasses.
Neutralize the prismatic effect (in the horizontal and vertical meridians) caused by the astigmatic correction whether it be corneal or lenticular.

Cosmetic Lens Grinding
A series of base curves and thicknesses to create cosmetic balancing in disparate prescriptions caused by anisometropia or amblyopia.
CPF Glare Cutter
