Art Optical Consultants Earn Advanced Certification

Art Optical Contact Lens, Inc. is pleased to announce the attainment of Advanced Certification for two members of its consultation team. Nicole Edwards, NCLC, and Bethany Peebles, NCLC, recently received recognition for successfully passing the Advanced Certification examination of the National Contact Lens Examiners Association.

Edwards, who is the consultation department supervisor, has been with Art Optical since 1991, and Peebles joined the team in 1999.

“Advanced Certification was a logical step for Nicole and Bethany,” said Mike Johnson, FCLSA, and Director of Consultation Services. “It validates the knowledge they’ve gained through their extensive interactions with practitioners and GP patients,” he continued.

Art Optical’s consultation department has gained national recognition as a primary source for GP fitting and problem solving information. By providing fitting and design assistance on over a 2 million lenses, they have established fitting philosophies that result in a high percentage of first fit success. The staff also includes an Optometrist, two FCLSA accredited lens fitters, and two NCLE certified consultants who are available to provide immediate fitting assistance to practitioners until 6:00 pm EST on weekdays.

“Eye care practitioners throughout the U.S. are truly receiving the best care and advice when they work with the Art Optical consultation group,” notes Johnson. Established in 1931, Art Optical Contact Lens, Inc. is the worlds’ leading GP lens manufacturer. Trained lens technicians in the advanced production facility specialize in custom contact lenses made to exacting standards by practitioner prescription for the correction of refractive errors including myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia, as well as custom contact lenses for orthokeratology, pediatric patients, and those with post corneal trauma, pathological concerns, and ocular disease.
