As independent optometrists (unlike chain or big-box stores) we utilize a wide variety of the finest ophthalmic lenses from respected international brands such as Carl Zeiss, Varilux, Nikon and Shamir. With our on-site computerized optical lab we offer better quality assurance and faster turn-around of eyeglass orders and repairs.
7 Reasons Why We Should Be Your Source For Contact Lenses
Competitive Pricing: The price of many contact lens brands dispensed at eye doctor’s offices is essentially the same as internet suppliers, and stores such as Costco and Walmart. Much like Apple Inc., which carefully regulates the price vendors charge for their products, most of the leading contact lens manufacturers have recently adopted a “Unilateral Pricing Policy” or UPP. This essentially sets minimum pricing that vendors are allowed to charge for contact lenses. Our office sets prices at the minimum allowable amount for each manufacturer. In some cases, special manufacturer’s rebates for the exam and lenses can add greater value.
(The contact lens industry is moving in this direction to place a greater emphasis on the patient-doctor professional relationship regarding eye health and safety, and less on the commoditization of contact lenses, which are after all, an FDA – controlled prescription medical device. For most patients this has resulted in a net lower cost for their contact lenses.)
One-Stop Convenience: Seamless transition from the exam to dispensing of contacts. We offer lenses in stock or rapid delivery time, including home delivery if desired.
Insurance: we accept most vision insurance plans which can be used to purchase contacts. In some cases manufacturer’s fitting rebates can provide an even better value.
Accuracy: The lenses you receive are exactly as we prescribe. All lenses are unexpired FDA – approved brands and no “gray merchandise”.
Selection: We carry all of the FDA-approved lenses and not just the most popular brands.
Exchanges: Lenses supplied by our office can be exchanged if there is a prescription change necessary during the annual CL Rx period.
Free Diagnostic Trials: To determine the precise prescription and to replace the occasional torn or lost lens.
