3 Insights for Sourcing Eyewear Designer Frames


If you are an optometrist with a private practice, then you already know that stocking quality eyewear frames is an essential part of the business. Clients appreciate an optometrist that doesn't refer them to another optometrist to get frames. Importantly, a good inventory of eyewear frames will give you a good supply of repeat clients. However, if you want to attract new clients and satisfy the ever-changing tastes and preferences of customers, then start stocking designer frames. Other than being durable and excellent in taste, designer frames appeal to clients who want to enhance their eyesight without compromising their sense of style. That said, sourcing for designer frames is not a layman's affair. This article provides tips for sourcing quality eyewear designer frames.

Research. Designer frame vendors come from all over the world, and most of the suppliers have wholesale stores online. Therefore, it is imperative to conduct thorough research for suppliers that only sell genuine designer frames. The research process can be long and tedious, but making sure that a prospective supplier is credible is of utmost importance. For instance, reach out to other optometrists and find out where they get their designer frames. Besides this, read online reviews given by other clients and look out for complaints about bootleg eyewear frames. Researching eyewear frame vendors is one way of getting value for money, because designer frames don't come cheap.

Flexible Return Policy. It is vital that optometrists have a return policy for the eyewear designer frames they sell. A client might order frames only to find out that they don't fit right, or they just don't like the look of the frames. As long as the frames are still new, you should allow your clients to return the frames in exchange for another pair. Similarly, you want to make sure that whoever you are sourcing the designer frames from also has a return policy. For instance, if you order and receive a batch of designer frames that just went out of trend, your supplier should accept your request to return the shipment in exchange for the latest designs.

Informative Supplier. Designer frame suppliers know that it is good business to keep up with current trends. Therefore it is crucial to work with eyewear frame suppliers that can offer information regarding what is trending. For example, if you order out-of-trend frames, your supplier should point that out. The vendor should go further and recommend the latest designs that go for the same price.

Maintaining Your Eye Health

If you want to maintain your eye health, it is really important that you have regular check-ups with an optometrist. An optometrist will perform a number of different tests on your eyes. Because I didn't need glasses, I didn't think I had to go to an eye doctor. However, my wife suggested that I book an appointment for a check-up. I did so and I am so pleased I did. It turns out that I had a problem with my eyes which could cause blindness if left untreated. Thankfully, we caught it early enough so I am now fully recovered. I hope this blog helps you to look after your vision.
