    Dr. Contact Lens, Fort Lauderdale, FL –February 23rd, 2022 – Dr. Contact Lens, the first contact lens service company that streamlines the contact lens ordering process for both patients and private practice owners via its powerful website, today announced the appointment of their new Vice President of Sales, Robin Rhodes.

    Carrying more than 25 years of experience in the optical industry, Rhodes hopes to push the Dr. Contact Lens brand to new heights in its goals to bring innovative technology to independent eyecare practices. Like co-founders Dr. Brianna Rhue and Dr. Jenn Tabiza, Rhodes noticed the unmet needs of eye doctors everywhere and now looks forward to helping those solutions succeed.

    “The technology and the people are what made me decide to join Dr. Contact Lens,” Rhodes said. “I’m very impressed with how energetic and excited Drs. Brianna Rhue and Jenn Tabiza are to work with and how much they care about their product. They see a need in the contact lens industry that is not covered, and it’s exciting to be a part of their mission.”

    Rhodes joined Dr. Contact Lens after acting as the VP of Strategic Accounts for Essilor Instruments and aiding in several startup programs throughout her career. She envisions the Dr. Contact Lens brand enhancing patient care by propelling providers into the future with its revolutionary contact lens ordering system, designed primarily with user experience in mind.

    “I foresee a lot of growth for Dr. Contact Lens in the future,” Rhodes said. “We will continually improve and expand our platform as doctors utilize it and find new ways we can make their experiences better. We’re flexible regarding any new ideas we receive from doctors and patients as they use our services, resulting in continual improvement that will drive us forward.”

    With the addition of Rhodes, Dr. Contact Lens expects to gain more traction in the market and better refine their contact lens ordering solution that has already improved the lives of many users in the optical space.

    About Dr. Contact Lens

    The Dr. Contact Lens platform is HIPAA-compliant and allows users to order contact lenses straight from their medical records. The ordering process is then handled by Dr. Contact Lens from start to finish and includes features such as automated exam and re-order reminders.

    Lumen Vision

    "I love Dr. Contact Lens because it impresses my patients as a cutting-edge solution to ordering contacts. We save an extraordinary amount of time every month because we don’t have to place contact lens orders and waste time with data entry. Our patients prefer the convenience, and I’m happy to give it to them - all while supporting my contact lens business!"

    Hudson River Eyecare

    "Dr. Contact Lens has been great for our practice.  Patients appreciate the easy access to their prescription, and the 1-click ordering has increased our capture rate for sure!  If our office has to close again due to the coronavirus, we can be sure that our contact lens sales will continue to grow!"

    Perry Brill

    Perry Brill, Office Manager

    Brill Eye Center

    "It really bothers me that the eyecare industry is slow to adopt e-commerce. Patients have been screaming at ECPs to buy contacts from us online for a decade. Finally, an OD friendly company made this possible. Thank you Dr. Contact lens!"

    Candria

    "It's never been easier to compete with giant online retailers. I'm ecstatic to have implemented Dr. Contact Lens & keep my contact lens sales in house. Thank you DCL!"

    Melanie

    Melanie Denton, OD

    Salisbury Eyecare

    "My patients love the convenience of Dr. Contact Lens, and my team loves the time it saves them. Because it is fully integrated with our EHR, it's easy to use for both the office and the patient. I'd highly recommend DCL!"

    Jazzy Eyes

    "Incorporating Dr. Contact Lens into my practice has helped me in many ways.  It has kept more patients in house for purchases and it has other features that are great. It frees up time my staff so we can spend more getting patients booked for exams.  It is more convenient for the patient as well, in case they want to order contacts at 1 in the morning, and it keeps track of expiring prescriptions, alerting both the patient and the office that it is time for the patient’s annual exam.  It complies with giving the patient their prescription for contact lenses.  It keeps pace with the pricing on 1800 so I can inform the patient without hesitation that we are priced competitively and they do not need to price shop online.  It makes the patient feel that we are modern and up to date with technology."

    Gus Garmizo, OD, FAAO

    Everything Eyes

    "I always prided myself on keeping my practice up to date and growing into the future. With Dr. Contact Lens we have done just that and streamlined a very old process. My patients love being able to order their contacts in one click, delivered directly to their home."

    Audrey

    Audrey Raley, OD

    Refined Eyecare & Eyewear Gallery

    "Dr. Contact Lens has completely transformed contact ordering in my office.  Before DCL, even with our other "direct-to-patient" software, contact lens ordering was still such a time consuming area of my practice. I can't get over the ultra sleek portal patients get access to in order to buy their contacts with DCL and how much time is saved! The marketing software/dashboard is everything I needed to boost my practice revenue, capture opportunities we were previously missing, and free up staff time"

    Bri

    Brianna Rhue, OD, FAAO, Co-founder

    West Broward Eyecare

    "Before Dr. Contact Lens we were always on the defense when it came to patients ordering contacts. We had no easy way to follow up with them & ordering the old way wasted so much time. Now we have a tech savvy way to compete in the growing online market, keep our practices thriving & our patients ordering from us!"
