    "The software allows the patient to directly order contact lenses and frees up valuable staff time and labor.  Dr. contact lens also messages patients directly when they are due to order additional lenses.  Best of all, patients are offered the absolute best price and deters the patient from internet shopping.  It allows us to sell to patients when we are not open, after hours, or in the event of closure.  It is a great patient retention tool."

    "DCL was easy to implement and seamless. Staff training was comprehensive and allowed us to start using it right away.  Patients have accepted it well, and it's always fun to see new orders come through from patients who might not have purchased in the office!"

    "Patients are more prompt with ordering contacts from us or coming in when they’re due for an exam because DCL reminds them when it’s coming up. My staff loves it because it’s a much more streamlined way to order and ship contacts to patients and because response time is amazing in the new live chat feature whenever they do have a question."

    "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!"

    "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"

    "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."

    "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."

    "I love technology, it has streamlined my practice so much. We work less, make more AND our patients are floored at our efficiency & services. We love making our patients & staff happy. Nothing does that better than cutting edge technology like Dr. Contact Lens!"

    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!"
