"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!"

"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!"

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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"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 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."

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"

"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!"

"We are a busy office and contact lenses have always been our bottleneck. We needed a new way for our patients to order from us to keep them from going online. Dr. Contact Lens is exactly this"
