3 Unique Ideas for Small Business Success

Eyecare Business March, 2016 Ally of the Independent by Samantha Toth

  1. Fight Commoditization – Many people are turning to the internet for eyewear. Something that used to be available only through an eyecare professional is now widely available. The problem is that eyewear is a medical device – and quality varies widely. Features for one brand are not identical to another…By explaining to patients that you carry quality products and by offering your in-person expertise and follow-up you can fight commoditization. Unique 2
  2. Carry Unique Products – When you carry unique products that are sold only at independent practices, people can’t go online or down the street to try to buy the same thing for a slightly lower price. Instead they will ask you questions and advice, creating a dialogue about their needs and concerns. It’s easy to stand out when others can’t compete with what you are offering
  3. Inform Your Customers – Because you carry unique products you may have to explain to patients why your specialized eyewear is work the price…You have to supremely knowledgeable and who them that products from different companies are not identical

Central Optical Limited, Jamaica, owned by Dr. and Mr. Riley-Ricketts, is a high traffic location, booked months in advanced. Adding the Q-2100 with nanoCLEAR AR unit to their lab in 2012, they are very successful with onsite lens production.

Optica Select, in the Antilles, owned by Dr. Fredrich Davelaar, is an ophthalmology clinic with dispensary in the city of Curacao.  Purchasing a Q-2100 with CFL molds for their lab in 2008, they are a staunch supporter of the progressive designs and its benefit to their patients. They expect to add the nanoCLEAR AR unit to their practice in the coming months.

Man at beach with sunglassesMany of Optical Dynamics lens products are well suited for warm tropical locations. The ultraSUN sunglass photochromic handles warm temperatures extremely well and is ideal for patients who spend a lot of time outdoors in sunny climates.  With our nanoCLEAR AR product, because of the way its processed, it is essentially impossible to induce craze in the AR stack. As a result, nanoCLEAR AR is damaged far less in boiling water and salt water tests than vacuum lenses, for a durable AR coating in coastal locations.
