Eye Center Boutique of Puerto Rico opened their tenth location with a Q-2100 Digital Lens System and nanoCLEAR AR unit this April. “With nine very successful locations across the island, the addition of a tenth boutique was the logical next step.” The newest location, positioned on the northern coast, approximately 15 miles from San Juan, continues to capitalize on their unique optical concept of selling high end handbags and shoes with prescription eyewear. What better way to cater to fashion conscious consumers.
Optical Dynamics is proud to have our technology as an integral part of their successful business plan and looks forward to working with this up and coming retail chain as they continue to grow.
Mary Sheedy is an Optican at Ortiz Eye Associates in Morris, IL and has been dispensing eyewear processed with the Q-2100 Digital Lens System for over 10 years. “I like that we make our own lenses in house, it saves the practice money on ordering out jobs and the fast turn around time for the patients is great,” shared Mary.
“The patients really like the lens quality and appreciate our in-office lens capability,” added Mary.
