Cidra Optical is located in Cidra, Puerto Rico, a city of approximately 43,000 people in the central part of the island. Away from the tourist destinations of the coast, owner Melvin Alvarez has the only system in his city. Celebrating his 6-year anniversary as part of the Optical Dynamics family this August, he wanted to provide a different level of service to his patients.
Not only does he have the only system in the city, he is the only laboratory in town that can provide one to two hour service on progressives and FT lenses. Alvarez consistently produces over 60 pair per month utilizing the equipment to its fullest potential with particular focus on nanoCLEAR AR and sunSMART II photochromic lenses. Alvarez is thrilled to have all his patients in eyeglasses the same day. “That is truly amazing,” he concludes.
