Partnering with LabLizard
This software integrates with our system to provide a remote, online Rx ordering program. Providers can log onto the SWEEP website and then order, reorder, or track the progress of eyeglasses moving through the lab. Built-in prompts reduce the potential for inaccurate or incomplete orders. Your order will be processed and integrated into our lab software by the end of each business day.
All lenses produced at SWEEP Optical conform to the most current FDA Impact Conformance Regulation and/or the ANSI X87.1 High Impact requirement. We offer lenses from top manufacturers, and are continually updating the lenses we carry.
We know producing high quality eyewear is important. So, too, is customer service that keeps you informed every step of the way. We are responsive to requests and inquiries, and we take a proactive stance if there is a delay or any irregularity. Most of all, our staff enjoy working with providers and often exceed their expectations.
As a Qualified Rehabilitation Facility, 75% to 85% of our staff who produce eyewear are individuals with a disability, with support and training from our lead technicians who have over 50 years of combined experience.
