lense

I'd try a beltsander and goggles. Fine paper and set the lense on a piece of rubber to absorb vibration.

Maybe try taking it to a eye Dr and see if they can or would grind it for you

I've done glass and poly with the belt sander. Tape both of the lens, draw the circle on the tape, sand to the mark.

You make it sound s simple! I emailed feather vision. Maybe I could send them out and have them done.

Any optical lab can cut that down without issue. I recommend taking it in to someone who can has a lensometer so they can make sure that the optical center of the lens is also the geometric center. Otherwise if the o.c. is not in the g.c. it creates prism. The lenses made for the archery industry are horrible quality. Full of prism and coated with bad anti reflective coatings... even the most expensive ones. Find an optometrist that has an on site lab. Cutting that down will only take a few minutes.

My advice--sell it and use the money to buy the proper lense size. If you do it and something goes wrong your out the cost of the lense + the added expense of buying a new one of the proper size.
