    We get ours from Ron's Optical. Not super cheap but our MD wants us to carry "good quality" readers to sell to the post-cataract patients who don't need prescription glasses anymore. Ron's Optical...

    So people are walking around with blue light test kits now? Good grief.

    I have yet to encounter an MD who writes their scripts in minus cyl, but I am sure trying to keep the patients here may be some motivation. I'm not going to complain about anything that deters an...

    New York has an Esquire line that is very modestly priced but pretty good quality. Our New York rep suggested we try them and they have done well for us. We mostly carry Kasperek's Camelot and Pure T...

    I don't mind transposing RXs, but as someone who works for an MD who prescribes in plus cyl, we have issues when our patients take their scripts elsewhere to be filled. Sometimes the person taking...

    I kind of agree with Andrew. The parent can obviously do whatever they want and of course they make the calls, BUT if they want their money to be well spent and for the kid to actually want to wear...

    Honestly, we haven't been sanitizing frames. My employer feels it's sufficient to just ask patients to use hand sanitizer before handling the frames. So far no one has licked a frame... yet. Now, we...

    Wow. Out of curiosity and for better understanding I googled how many microns the thickness of paper is - and it's an average of 100 microns. Obviously I knew a coating would be much thinner than...

    In my opinion, working with kids is a lot easier than adults when it comes to the optician role. Now, being a ophthalmic tech for a pediatric office - heck no. The moment those dilation drops hit a...

    I do not understand the cult following that these brands have. Apple products are not always the best and we now know they use questionable labor practices, so they are definitely not spending much...

    Davis just sucks. :frown: Nothing works and they are extremely disorganized. Reps are no help either. Say a prayer or do a ritual - be just as good as calling their provider service.

    *Sometimes* you have to clear your browser cookies, and magically the site will work, but it is not uncommon for it to be buggy.

    I just think they should give a lot more. I don't think you could find a pair of dentures for $800. Maybe off of Wish! They should come up with a Zenni Optical but for dental appliances. People will...

    Now if they did that for vision, I'd be on board! Makes it all so less complicated and patients could get a quality set of eyeglasses. I am sure there are easier ways to verify Medicare eligibility...

    I like that there are different opinions discussed in this thread. It helped me look at it from another standpoint and see where others are coming from. I think it's important to remember that we're...

    DanLiv makes good points. I hadn't thought of it that way, and maybe this is something that a lot of other opticals do - since I have had a few patients tell me they thought all lenses came included...

    Just saw the CE course in 20/20 mag on Zeiss's Blue Guard. Notice how they always say "potentially harmful."

    I wonder why UV protection isn't as valued as blue light protection? I see people...

    I forget what the manufacturer is, but the "Champion" (like the sportswear company) licensed line has a pair with side panels. Just saw them in one of the trade magazines. I'd love to pick up a pair...

    There are always fitover sunglasses for those willing to make the fashion faux pas. The kind with the little sunglass panels on the temples, like Solar Shields. Our patients are mostly geriatric,...
