    Alternative to Frames Data

    Good morning guys and gals! Hope everyone is doing as good as can be in our current climate. Does anyone know of a good alternative to Frames Data? My Doctor is fuming right now because of what they did with our account during this pandemic, so trying to see if anyone knows of a good alternative. We use Office Mate if that helps. Thanks guys!

    Is Frames Data still relevant (needed)? I haven’t used them in over 15 years.

    We continue to subscribe because of how it integrates with Eyefinity Practice Management. I know of no alternative.

    Same. And unfortunately, for us, still relevant. We were hoping to find something else that could work with Eyefinity systems.

    If your dispensary isn't too big, you can simply hand-enter frame data for only what you carry. It's a huge time suck to set it up, but not too hard to update as you go. I've had to do that with a couple offices.

    Yeah we've expanded the optical side heavily, too many frames now in and out and adding more and removing others. lol Looks like we're stuck with it.

    Just curious. What is the cost of a subscription these days? I thought it was outrageous when I dropped it years ago.

    They're still fairly expensive annually. We get a discount through one of our groups, but still expensive. Unfortunately, it helps a lot.
