Posted by James Stephany on Jun 27, 2019 8:59:00 AM

In September of 2018 we took a look at the differences between fixed corridor vs. variable corridor digital progressives. While that is a great explanation of how to get the best out of each, fixed corridor progressive lenses can give you a new arsenal to keep your patients happy

We are seeing more of our customers choosing fixed corridor for their patients and for good reason. This blog will give you best practices when fitting your patients with fixed corridor progressives.

4 Ways To Increase Patient Satisfaction At Your Optical

Posted by James Stephany on Jun 13, 2019 9:09:00 AM

 

We are all in the business of striving to help each patient recreate perfect vision and we always hope every patient leaves satisfied. While we know that won't always be the case, there are some key drivers that will help to achieve those lofty goals!

 

Every patient is different and even in patients with similar Rx's the end result for their lenses can have a wide amount of variance. This is all based upon their individual needs.

 

From older traditional progressives like the tried and true Varilux Comfort to newer top of the line digital progressives like the Shamir Autograph Intelligence, and even with simple single vision lenses or new technology like Eyezen single vision lenses, every patient has a wide variety of options available to them.

 

Here are 4 easy ways you can increase patient satisfaction at your optical dispensary:

Eyezen+™ Lenses Can Bring New Patients To Your Practice

Posted by Michelle on Mar 21, 2019 4:26:15 PM

 

In 2015, Essilor launched the Eyezen+™ lenses giving patients across the world a better alternative to traditional single vision lenses. These lenses are geared toward the modern digital lives of your pre-emerging presbyope patients.

 

While it's hard for me to admit, this year I reached the point in my life where my phone, tablet, and computer became a challenge to see. I started noticing at the end of my work day my eyes were tired and I had to come to grips with the reality that I needed help. In what seemed like overnight, I had become a pre-emerging presbyope

 

As I have recommended the Eyezen+™ lenses to our customers over the last few years, I knew it was time to give in and get a pair for myself. The difference was amazing! My eyes actually felt fresh at the end of the day again. I believe the combination of the additional add power in the bottom, along with the blue light protection simply allowed my eyes to work less throughout the day.

 

With four options available, patients under the age of 17 to 45 or 50 can find great benefits form the Eyezen™ line, even if they don't need prescription lenses, just like myself.
