COSTA’S SEG SNAKE SLITHERS ONTO THE SCENE. Giving ECPs a way to establish more precise segment height measurements for Rx sun lens fittings, the Costa Seg Snake is free to all authorized Costa optical retailers. This innovative tool has a 6-in. flexible arm punctuated by a built-in light bulb. The bulb inserts comfortably around the back of the glasses, and then illuminates the backside of the lens and allows a clear view of the pupil, resulting in a quick and accurate, individualized segment height measurement. For more information, contact Costa at 800-447-3700 or costadelmar.com.
