    If we have a specific rep for VSP, I have never seen or heard from them. We probably only get 4-5 VSP patients a week at most who are ordering glasses so we probably aren't high on their priority...

    Thank you! Wrote that all down in my study notes. What a fitting username, too.

    They do pay for it IF we pass. Haha. Well, it's good to know it won't be like an algebra test. I'm a little dissapointed the speed of light stuff isn't on there! 186,000 miles per second is burned...

    Yeah. I wouldn't be heartbroken if they were going out of business and the Porsche eyewear was discontinued but it would be nice to know that. I have left them several messages since last week and no...

    I think it depends on your patient demographics on whether you can just decide to fit them with whatever you feel will best meet their needs and just tell them the price at the end. I definitely see...

    We do, unfortunately. We carry the Porsche line. They never did call me back and still cannot get a human being on the phone. Very concerning.

    Congrats! I am studying for the ABO. I've worked in eyecare since 2011 but not all of that time was in optical and I am self-taught, so I am very intimidated by the ABO, especially the math related...
  10. Anyone know what's up with Rodenstock?

    Our rep apparently quit, which I was not aware of until now. I have been calling the customer service because I need a Porsche frame for a patient ASAP and no one answers. I've left them multiple...

    Hmmm, it may let you submit the claim but then they could just not pay anything or charge you for it down the road, or do an audit. I'm not sure how sophisticated the "modern" e-claim is now with all...

    Cheap = Nassau. Not always the best quality. We order basic SV lenses from them and have them edged elsewhere.

    I do try to stick to our policies, but honestly when the owners/management don't back employees up when they follow policy, why bother? Patients learn that they can get away with things, especially...

    I haven't worked somewhere that accepted Davis in awhile but when I did the doctors pretty much stuck to what was within Davis' contact lens formulary because we never got paid fairly for the off...
