  3. Phone: US Practitioners, call 800-367-4009 and press 2 for Consultation. Canadian Practitioners, call 800-567-7350 and simply ask for Consultation.

In an effort to help improve the quality and timeliness of service we can provide; we kindly ask that you refrain from requesting specific consultants. ALL our consultants are extremely knowledgeable and have thorough training and experience in fitting all our lenses.

  1. Have your account number, as well as the patient name & any previous invoice for that patient.

You can pull up invoices via the Extranet, found on the homepage of this website. To access the Extranet for the first time, you will need to select “Forget Password?” and a password reset will be emailed to you.
