Eye Care Professionals
FAQ for Eye Care Professionals
Does the DryEyeShop sell to ECPs or just patients/consumers?
Both. In addition to retail sales, we sell to a great many eyecare professionals, including universities, civilian and military hospitals and private clinics. We are not, however, a wholesaler. Typically, institutions and physicians purchase from us either for use in clinic or for infrequent specialty product needs. If you are purchasing products for routine resale in your practice, in most cases you can get better pricing if you purchase direct from the manufacturer of the product(s) you are seeking and we will be happy to provide contact information for them.
Doctors find it advantageous to purchase scleral lens care products and dry eye consumer products from us for use in their practice because we are a single source for a wide variety of specialty products, provide prompt, top quality customer service, and provide extensive information and support to ECPs and patients alike.
How can my patients place orders? Do they have to go online?
Your patients can order by PHONE or online at dryeyeshop.com. Many patients prefer to order by phone and we love to take their calls. Dry eye patients and scleral lens users alike are often anxious and have many questions and we like nothing better than to support them and help address their concerns. Consider us part of your team!
