"A big difference between the big box retailers and this company is that Eyemart Express is run by ODs. The professionalism is at a much higher level."

"I look at Eyemart Express as a hybrid situation. It’s not commercial, yet it’s not your typical private practice because we aren’t selling eyeglasses—and that was a great thing for me. It’s simpler now that the dispensary is gone."

"We learned early on that 90% of the headaches came from running the dispensary. If we had a frustrating day, typically it came from the eyeglass sales. It has been—without a doubt—a fantastic decision for us."

"I'm just more comfortable. My head is with the patient, not with the retail. My focus is now truly on performing exams."

"When I came out of school, literally every optometrist was charging low fees and marking up the glasses–I didn't want to do that. I wanted fees for service. I didn't go through eight years of college to be an optician. Breaking free of the optical allows me to spend more time on patient care."
