In the competitive eyecare industry, practices are constantly looking to get an edge over the competition. For some, bringing lens finishing in house is a beneficial option. In addition to eliminating lab and shipping costs, it gives the optician more control and efficiency. The biggest advantage of having an edging system in house is the additional services you can offer your patients: immediate dispensing of eyeglasses to patients who have a “stock” lens prescription, edging down of patient’s old lenses to new smaller frames, and the option for patients to keep their own eyeglasses while replacement lenses are on order.
While finishing equipment can be quite costly, Enhanced Medical Services (EMS) provides the affordable option of purchasing pre-owned edgers. After completing a comprehensive refurbishment process, you may even think it’s a new machine when it arrives at your office. Additionally, all used edgers from EMS include free training and installation as well as warranties and lifetime phone support.
In addition to patternless edgers from Santinelli, Briot, Essilor, and more, EMS carries all the accessories and chemical supplies needed to set up your lens finishing lab. Browse our selection of lensometers, blockers, tracers, groovers, frame warmers, and tinting supplies.
