With the Optical Dynamics Digital Lens System you create a finished Rx directly from the premium index lens material, eliminating the need to stock a semi-finished blank that is later surfaced to the final prescription. This lowers expense and ends the delivery challenges associated with ordering, shipping and managing an inventory of thick semi-finished lens blanks or disposable molds. This process also reduces the variables of surfacing and ensures consistent high quality digital lenses at a much lower cost.
With the Q-2100 Digital Lens System, all you inventory is the bottle of premium lens material. This bottle in clearLIGHT, sunSMART, ultraSUN, or blueVIEW, becomes a progressive lens, a single vision lens, a flattop lens, a plus lens or a minus lens. With bottles packaged in 16 to 32 pair for production, you have on hand what you need when you need it. As written in an article by Joseph Bruneni for Eye Care Business, “This is an inventory control concept called just-in-time delivery and works when limited inventory is stored at hand until shortly before it is needed for the production line…lens casting its a prime example of how such a process can work.”

- 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.
- 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
- 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
Optical Dynamics is pleased to celebrate 2-years working with Dr. Peter Lombard and the Team from Lombard Health. Located in Sinajana, Guam, Dr. Lombard personally visited our headquarters in Louisville, KY for training.
As a graduate of Annapolis, John Hopkins Medical School, and 2016 Rio Olympian, Dr. Lombard is committed to providing quality, ethical and compassionate eye care for his patients. As shared on his practice website, his philosophy is simple: Inspire trust, practice with honesty, and communicate with respect.
Dr. Lombard wanted the latest in lens processing technology for his newly opened dispensary. Providing patients with quality eye wear and just-in-time delivery was key to his decision making process. Adding the technology to the island also keeps jobs and business local, an important factor of his ongoing business plan. We look forward to hearing of Dr. Lombard’s continued success.
