One of the things we always get asked for by both consumers and eyecare professionals are:
1.) Eyecare Products made in the USA.
2.) Biodegradable products are products which have a low impact on the environment.
3.) Recycleable packaging.
A fairly new company to the US is Kleerspex meets all of the above: Their products are not only made in the US (Minnesota) and utilize both water-based and biodegradable ingredients which are listed on the ‘Cleangredients Database‘ plus recycleable packaging. You can now offer to your patients low environmental impact options, a good thing for the eco-conscious consumer.
As a believer in thanking your patients (see dentist post) I am particularly impressed by their Gift Set, which includes the cleaner, wipes and a Thank You bag. It sends a great message- we thank you, we like you, we want you to care for your eyewear and we care about your health, we care about the environment.
Even if you don’t care about the eco friendliness, offering Lens Cleaners in general is important and can be an additional sale. (See $5) Personally speaking, I have lens cleaners in front of my computer, in my car, in my purse, in my backpack. I use to clean my phone, my computer, more than I use to clean my glasses… I have about 5 spray bottles scattered throughout the house. Maybe I have a spray addiction, but I can’t be the only one.
Another added benefit, is the refillable option. It keeps the patients coming back in for refills, offering free refills (or refill coupons) with an eye exam is good business.
Anyway, check them out, Kleerspex.com or call (877) 553-3737
