Recycling glasses: they too have the right to a second life!
Like last year, proof that a certain ecological awareness is being deployed among optical players , our article on recycling glasses is at the top of the most read articles in 2019.
It is true that there is no shortage of unused pairs of glasses in France, since, according to a survey carried out by our member Atol in 2015, there are around 100 million!
Recycling your old peers means providing equipment to the most needy, especially in developing countries, which represent 90% of the visually impaired in the world. A staggering figure due to the difficulty of access to healthcare and medical devices.

Blue light filter: the lenses too!
In second position, there is an article combining health and high technology. The blue light problem is always worrying and, although we are familiar with the treatment of lenses for optical frames, we are not always aware of the one that can be applied to contact lenses.
However, lens wearers can also be protected by a blue light filter because some lenses have a selective blue light blocking filter, are flexible , renew monthly , and have the advantage of filtering UVA and UVB rays. .

Insurance, guarantees…: what after-sales service for opticians?
Our article on after-sales service at opticians closes the podium. And yes ! For a customer, price is not everything. The service offered after the purchase by the optician will allow the latter to stand out.
It is above all a matter of relieving the customer of overly restrictive procedures by offering exchanges and repairs in the event of breakage or loss , the first levers of concern for someone who has just changed their pair of glasses.
