Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you deliver on a National basis? +

  • What can be done to improve service in the Optical Industry? +

    We have an amazing on-line system bespoke for the Optometric industry, Green Vision. If all suppliers and optoms use this, there will be transparency between supplier and optom for their deliveries and pending orders. There will be immediate knowledge of the order and accordingly planning in the system can be done to achieve a faster turn-around time, the optoms will have a digital record of their jobs sent to the various suppliers and where the order is in the system for returns, the optom and / or client will receive notification from us regarding pending delivery time. With this being implemented, we can achieve a faster delivery time, cut back on stops where there is no collection and offer effective savings in the long term accordingly.
