    Check out the latest news in contact lens technology, best practices & how to maximize your revenue.

    Optometry & Tech

    The world of Optometry is an ever changing environment. Adaptation has been the strongest indicator of practices that thrive versus those that struggle. Remember eye exams without auto-refractors and optos? Technology has given Optometry the necessary means to increase volume, add efficiency and create a profitable business. We have come a long way, but our journey forward is never over. 


    How to decide when its time to upgrade?

    Investing in your future self is the way to give your business the insurance it needs to keep up with patient demand and how the world is changing. 

    So lets do some calculating...

    Sometimes it can seem daunting to know when investing in a new technology will pay off. Math has always been a surefire way to give you this answer:

    Lets say 30% of your patients don't order or re-order from you. If you see 800 patients in a year, and 240 of them order elsewhere...that is easily $90,000 in sales right out the door (basing it on just a monthly lens). And lets not forget other retailers offer online eye exams, further dwindling future exam profits. Check out your ROI on lost contact lens sales here

    ROI

    Would you pay a monthly subscription fee to capture 15% of that, streamline your practice, and save hundreds of hours of ordering time? The answer is clear - without investing in a tool that can help you capture more sales, it is hard to ever expect them...

    Afraid of learning something new?

    Yes, we know this is a barrier to adapting to new technologies...but at Dr. Contact Lens we hold your hand through the process making it simple and painless. Our platform interface is easy to use and intuitive. You will have a personal account manager for staff trainings and consulting on how to grow your practice. Putting this effort in now will pay off later.

    Technology is our mission.

    At Dr. Contact Lens, we invest constantly in technology. We are always innovating new tools for your practice to grow. Using our service makes you part of a network of ODs who share best practices and is backed by strong customer service.

    Ready for a change?

    What ODs are saying

    Ryan Capouch

    Ryan Capouch, OD

    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!"

    Larah Alami

    Larah Alami, OD

    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

    Candria Krywko, OD

    Eyes on Hayden

    "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!"

    Laura Falco

    Laura Falco, OD

    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

    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" 

    Parkside eyecare

    Monica Ma OD & Jonathan Renyon OD

    Parkside Eyecare

    "Dr. Contact Lens has been a game changer for our practices. We used to track our patients through an excel spreadsheet and now we can see and do everything through Dr. Contact Lens. Patients are loving it and staff are loving it! It has been a win-win."

    Jenn

    Jenn Tabiza, OD, Co-founder

    Westchester Eyecare Center

    "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!"

    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!"

    gianni

    Giannie Castellanos, OD

    Infinite Vision Care

    "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"

    Brian Abert

    Brian Abert, OD

    Vista Eyecare
