This includes the installation of two in-house Crizal® AR systems, robotic surfacing and the acquisition of three robotic lens edging lines (Satis-Loh ES3, Santinelli AES-1500, and Satis-Loh ES Curve) , two with drilling capabilities, which has greatly enhanced the speed and accuracy of our finishing process.

We take pride in our ability to handle all of today's more challenging work including drilled rimless and the ever more popular "wrap" style frames. Our skilled technicians use our Santinelli AES-1500 and Satis-Loh ES Curve 5 Axis robotic edging/drilling lines to assist them in crafting high-quality drilled rimless.
Our experienced sales consultants are available to provide ABO certified education and staff training right in ™your office. They can assist with capture rate assessment, dispensary set-up, equipment purchase and installation and many other facets of practice management.
