Unilens Vision joins VisionWeb network

2011-05-12 11:22 ET - News Release

Mr. Kelly McKnight reports


Unilens Vision Inc. has joined the VisionWeb network of suppliers. VisionWeb is the premier provider of technology services to the optical industry. This strategic partnership will give independent eye-care professionals the ability to browse, place and track C-Vue disposable contact lens orders from Unilens Vision on-line through the VisionWeb portal. Unilens, known as the independent eye-care professional's specialty contact lens company, brings a rich portfolio of specialty lens options to the VisionWeb network that will contribute to the practice profitability and patient retention of its independent practitioner members. VisionWeb members will now be able to order C-Vue disposable contact lenses along with thousands of other ophthalmic products from one convenient, on-line location at the VisionWeb website. VisionWeb users have the ability to view C-Vue brand lens options, choose shipping methods and track order status, which will provide for the efficiency and convenience of on-line ordering. Members can also choose to have their lenses shipped directly to their practice location, or to have them drop-shipped from the Unilens distribution centre and sent to a patient address. Orders placed to Unilens through VisionWeb will provide users with order status information, on-line in real time.

"We are very excited to announce our new connection with Unilens, and to continue growing our contact lens supplier portfolio," said Tom Loveless, vice-president of business development and chief financial officer for VisionWeb. "This allows more customers to order more of their products in one place, increasing the value of VisionWeb for our customers. We see this as an important addition to the VisionWeb network that will support our efforts of providing the most expansive and robust portal in the market."

"At Unilens, we have a long-standing commitment to supporting the growth and strength of high-quality independent optometry," stated Kelly McKnight, vice-president of sales and marketing for Unilens Vision. "We believe this partnership, along with our recent launch of the C-Vue HydraVUE family of custom silicone hydrogel lenses, continues to illustrate Unilens's commitment to independent eye-care professionals throughout the United States by providing outstanding specialty lens technology coupled with the convenience of VisionWeb's on-line portal."

Ordering on VisionWeb is free for eye-care providers. VisionWeb members can add Unilens's C-Vue brands to their supplier accounts and begin ordering today. For more information, or for help with VisionWeb ordering, please contact VisionWeb customer service at 800-874-6601 or e-mail customer service.
