WCO Goes Digital

Over the past 7 years, several independent labs and I jointly formed a company called Nexus Vision Group. The idea was to form a “lab co-op” to bring capital intensive technology in one location to serve our own individual labs and ultimately our clients.  Our first purchase and installation was a state-of- the-art anti-reflection laboratory.  This joint venture has grown to process many thousands of coating jobs a month in our own brands – Nvision and Carbonite.

Almost three years ago, we expanded our operations to include the latest in digital lens processing or “freeform” production.  This new machinery allowed WCO to provide you with precise digital lens technology in a reasonable time frame at the highest quality standard. We have been certified to process all  Shamir Autograph and Seiko series of digital progressives. In addition, we launched our own brand of free-form progressives called Proprius.

These additional services, which are part of WCO, allow us to bring you the most recent technology in lenses and coating. In turn, your patients will experience enhanced visual acuity using the latest in digital freeform technology.

I would like to conclude with a few key points for you to consider:

  • We are independent wholesale laboratory located in North Carolina.  We support our local economy and have served our community for over 25 years.
  • Our services are provided to only independent eye care professionals and groups– no mass merchants.
  • We offer a variety of competitively priced lenses from leading vendors – from inexpensive to premium.
  • We are a completely independent wholesale lab and can be fully objective on what is the very best for your patients.
  • We are fully invested in cutting edge technology through our affiliation with Nexus Vision

We are investing in our future and yours and wanted to let you know about this expansion. We truly appreciate your support.
