Small-Town Eye Doctors Have a Partner in Fundus Photo, LLC
by Carmen Schwartz
Fundus Photo is a highly-respected name in the optometry/ophthalmology field, and there is a list of reasons why. Not only are they a company that provides the most innovative and up-to-date technology and equipment, but they also provide customer satisfaction that goes well beyond any other company.
It was in 2007 that Fundus Photo Digital Upgrades for Fundus Cameras appeared on the scene. These particular items made doctors see exactly how smooth their daily lives could be when they were working with the right equipment. The instruments and products Fundus Photo provides allows the doctor to diagnose, treat and monitor his/her patients at all times. The professional no longer has to wait or deal with maintenance issues, etc.; with Fundus Photo, time is never taken away from the patient, allowing the doctor to provide the ultimate in eye care.
In April of 2013, Fundus Photo, LLC presented “Fundus Autofluoresence” to the industry, and the doctors out there received even more technology to better serve their patients. They also developed the complete confidence they needed in a manufacturer and supplier. Even in a niche market that only has a hundred or so manufacturers and distributors of this technology, the doctor is able to find and receive the ‘best of the best’ by purchasing from their Partner in Imaging.
In addition, the doctor does not have to worry about other issues, such as FDA clearance, or expensive technical support. Fundus Photo is the only ophthalmic digital imaging provider in this segment to earn the highest level of quality, safety and performance the US FDA and ISO require.
And when it comes to paying extra expenses for technical support once the purchase is made, Fundus Photo actually treats their clients as partners, by offering zero-cost technical support. This is a hands-on company that actually wants to form and maintain a great relationship with their clients. The professional can even speak directly to the President of the company if they have questions or need information.
When it comes to the independent optometrist or ophthalmologist, they are faced with an ongoing challenge of fewer patients and smaller revenue streams than the larger practices, hospitals and surgery centers. Therefore, they sometimes look at these new innovations as being too high-priced for their budgets. But with the industry now growing every year, the independent eye doctor feels the increasing need to have the technology on-hand to fill patient demands for better, quicker care.
Independent eye care professionals face other challenges when it comes to growth. Large national chains have the budget ability to create innovative marketing strategies to sell their products and services; whereas an independent does not. And when it comes to small-town practices, all the local eye doctor can rely on is word of mouth and his loyal patients in order to be a success. But the costs of the national chains are far lower, which means that even the most loyal of patient can move on to save money.
The evolution of worker/employee benefits is also improving when it comes to eye care; however, that means the demand is also growing.
With Fundus Photo, LLC, optometrists are seeing the return on their investment that comes from purchasing the products they need in their offices. This is one industry that must stay ahead of it’s time so that eye care can remain superior.
So if you are that independent – that small practice that truly needs to purchase the equipment to do the job right – Fundus Photo and its parent company, St Louis Ophthalmologic Equipment Company, is exactly where you need to start.
New and reconditioned equipment that has been refurbished by experts in the field are also available, because at Fundus Photo and St. Louis Ophthalmic Equipment, savings comes in all forms, as the evolution of eye care continues.
