Cutting Temples


Cutting temples is a skill many opticians struggle with.  Even experienced opticians.  Some don’t know how, some don’t know when it’s appropriate to cut, some opticians have no idea which temples you can cut and which are more difficult.  Some don’t even know it’s an option.

For some patients cutting temples is absolutely the right option.  In many cases it’s easy and requires no tools that every optician should have.  In some cases it’s more difficult and requires some very special tools.  In every case it’s a possibility though every case is an individual and has it’s own limitations and challenges.

Here is a short video about cutting temple so you can see how it’s done and what the end product will look like on your patient.
