    Hahaha, I think my last post had the wrong tone, I fully recognize I am definitely still a novice and learning! What I meant was I know what you mean about opticians in Texas completely, and “one of...

    Thanks for your fast and helpful input. I found that site when searching, but hate that type of almost-legalese found on government websites and decided to just ask informally first. I'm seeing some...

    The current doctor I work for and the last one I worked for both refuse to email a prescription, insisting it is illegal, even though it isn't. They just didn't want to risk it or bother setting up a...
  4. Becoming a certified optician in NY from out of state

    Hello, OptiBoard! I plan to move to NYC by the end of 2020 and am starting to gather some precursory information. I know that unlike my current state of Texas, New York requires all practicing...

    This is your advantage when it comes to competing to Warby as an online retailer. In store experience is quite different, as Warby has dedicated Opticians and they prefer to hire people with optical...

    I hated what it was becoming. When I joined, they were already a large company, but their physical retail presence was brand new and still had a real small, grassroots feel. They seemed to truly care...

    Marketing. Their aesthetic and "brand" is equally as important to the company as the product itself and they made glasses "cool". Their price is also really good, and most independent places that try...

    Was just teasing about the dirt ; ) Unfortunately they never shared that info with us retail side, even us Opticians! It seems to be more basic digital PAL lens, it isn't awful by any means, but...
