At VisionWeb, we are always looking for a way to reuse everyday objects. So, when the Optical Vision Site gave us 33+ ways to recycle common eycare practice items, we got excited. Get inspired! You may just find new uses for those extra frames and glasses cases you have laying around. You just can't beat creating something spectacular while simultaneously saving a buck!

Opportunities For Eye Care Practice Professionals

Always in the green and save mode and thinking of ways to reuse everyday optical-eyecare objects it occurred to me while we did a post on reusing eyeglasses cases to make a Train Set -we haven’t done a post about how many other ways can you reuse eyeglass cases. When I started listing all the ways you can reuse or use eyeglass cases.. WOW- what a great opportunity for eyecare professionals! Thinking out of the eyeglass box.. eyeglass cases are not just for eyeglasses anymore.. Why not set up a ‘Store Within A Store‘ concept just with different types of eyeglass cases and do up some demo- displays like the ones shown below.
