ABB OPTICAL GROUP IS PUTTING THE FUTURE IN FOCUS FOR THE EYE CARE INDUSTRY

 

Las Vegas, NV (September 18, 2019) – ABB Optical Group, a leading national provider of optical products and business solutions for the eye care industry, announced today, at Vision Expo West, the reintroduction of its brand to the eye care industry. The rebrand and introduction of product, service and business solutions represent the latest efforts in ABB's decades-long commitment to providing high quality products and services to more than two-thirds of eye care professionals (ECPs) throughout the United States.

Founded in 1989 by Angel Alvarez, ABB Optical Group began as a distributor of soft contact lenses and has significantly expanded its operations over the years, eventually growing into the leading distributor of optical products in the United States. Over the last 30 years, ABB has delivered value to its customers and the industry that goes far beyond distribution. ABB Optical Group is committed to ensuring that ECPs succeed by helping them grow revenue, improve efficiencies, increase profitability, and navigate market changes.

ABB Optical Group's commitment to ECPs has never been stronger. The company has reorganized its services and solutions into three new groups: ABB Contact Lens, ABB Labs, and ABB Business Solutions.

ABB Contact Lens is America's leading authorized distributor for all major soft contact lens manufacturers and the industry's foremost manufacturer of custom soft and gas-permeable contact lenses.

ABB Labs offers ECPs fabrication of a wide selection of brand-name digital lens designs and AR coatings, as well as its own proprietary products, with the best quality and fastest turnaround times. ABB Labs' fully automated laboratories feature multiple fabrication lines, onsite AR coating capabilities, as well as lens finishing centers, and frames distribution.

ABB Business Solutions provides ECPs with operational solutions to help them attract and retain patients and drive efficiencies in their practices. Collaborating with industry leaders to offer new products and services to its ECP customers, ABB Business Solutions features a practice performance optimization platform, vision care benefits optimization system, patient communication system, an automated contact lens reordering platform, and more for a total of five new solutions supporting ECPs.

  • ABB Analyze, powered by Glimpse: Practice performance and dashboard analytics software
  • ABB AutoShip: Gives patients the convenience to order and receive their contact lenses when and where it works for them
  • ABB Educate: Online and in-person training for ECPs and optical staff
  • ABB Verify: Benefits and managed care verification technology
  • ABB Connect: Loyalty driving marketplace platform

"Together, the three pillars of ABB Optical Group represent the services, value, and commitment we continue to offer to our customers. While we are very proud of our legacy, we are not only a contact lens distributor, we are an optical platform that uniquely supports the doctors with choice," said ABB Optical Group CEO Tom Burke. "We deliver services, solutions, and convenience to our customers that can't be found anywhere else. With our refreshed, updated brand identity, ABB Optical Group is putting a brighter future into focus for eye care professionals."
