If you need to place a new order for plano convex lens, and have paid a high price in the past, you may be looking for a new manufacturer to order from.
If this sounds like you, it may also be time for you to move away from ordering from American companies and look to China, Thailand or Malaysia instead.
Why choose Asian companies? -- Some of the top lens manufacturers in the world are based in China, Thailand and Malaysia.
They manufacture their plano convex lens, and other lenses, to international specifications and in factories that are high-tech and operating with some of the best equipment you can buy.
They can, thus, manufacture the highest quality plano convex lens you have ever bought, but can do so at a low price you have never paid before.
How to find the best Asian companies? -- Do a search for online reviews written by people who have bought plano convex lenses from an Asian company, and see what they say.
Make a note of any company that the reviewer likes, as well as the price they paid for the plano convex lenses they received.
Look for the company's website via Google or Bing search, and read all the information you can find about them. Specifically look for companies that have been in business for several decades, as these tend to be the most reputable and the most reliable.
Ordering from an Asian company -- Placing an order with an Asian company is no different than doing so with an American one.
If you do it by telephone or via email, you will be dealing with English speaking staff that can give you a free quote and answer any questions you may have.
Place your order just like you have always done, and then wait for it to arrive.
