Dennis – Eye Care Optical – Independence, MO
“I have been an optician for 43 years, and I have run traditional lab systems for the majority of that time. Now that I have had the opportunity to use FastGrind, I wish I had this system 43 years ago. I have processed over 200 pairs of lenses without one single remake. The system is very user friendly, allowing me to make superior lenses in a short amount of time. I am amazed at how FastGrind was able to simplify the process without giving up any of the quality. This system is exactly what we needed and has been a great asset to Eye Care Optical.”
César Sanabria - Owner Saga Centro Optico - Venezuela
"Presently, we have sold more than 1,400 pairs of progressives from Super Systems. Everybody is happy; our clients, our optometrists, our salesmen, and myself. As a result of the success we experienced using the system, we were able to pay back the investment in the half the time we estimated, while delivering a fast high quality product.This year we plan to buy two more systems to be operated in two of our additional stores. We know that delivering progressives in less than an hour is going to provide a differentiating value to our stores, increasing sales. Saga Centro Optico recovered the market it lost in less than a year with Fast Grind; despite the economic situation in Venezuela."
Erin – Newton Eyecare Center – Michigan
“We have had FastGrind for about 2 years now, and we are a small private practice with 7 employees and Dr. Newton. We had been able to edge our lenses for quite some time and Dr. Newton wanted to expand our in-house abilities. Training and learning how to operate the FastGrind unit was a piece of cake. It is very self explanatory. I want to say I grind anywhere from 5-8 pairs of lenses a week, and with that small volume we find it is profitable. We promote FastGrind lenses as our standard pricing options, offering a standard FastGrind AR lens. We mainly do progressives and FT 28, along with their Single Vision Conversion lenses. FastGrind has been a great addition to our practice.”

“We have been FastGrind customers for over 15 years, and when we heard the news that we could use our FastGrind system as an in-house EyeMed lab we were thrilled. We signed up with EyeMed in June of 2014, and it was the best decision we could have made. Our reimbursements have changed significantly; we can see the actual money, which is a big deal. It also used to take 1-2 weeks to see our products delivered when using the partner labs, plus we had no control over quality, time, and cost. Now that we can use our FastGrind system on EyeMed jobs we can provide same day service and control our turnaround time and quality of the products we are providing to our patients. We are so much happier and the process has been much easier. We don’t have to follow invoices to make sure our office got what it wanted. FastGrind has been an excellent investment as Super Systems has always kept us current with new lenses and programs like EyeMed.”
Dr. Gary Brush - Illinois
"I had been looking for a lens with high quality optics like the Kodak Unique and Precise I had been wearing, but at a more competitive price. After wearing the ADDvantage progressive lens, I liked the optics so well that I purchased the FastGrind System. Also, FastGrind gives me controlled production time, controlled quality and competitive pricing which is needed to compete in today's tough economy. FastGrind and ADDvantage are simply the best!”
Dr. Marlene Smith-Day - Jamaica
“As an optician operating outside of the US, I believe that the FastGrind System was an advantage in getting my optical laboratory up and running from scratch; for more reasons than one. First, with the FastGrind System, my patient return rate is much faster; less than an hour. Second, the software was very user friendly and made it easier for me to familiarize myself. It was faster than I thought. Finally, the staff at Super Optical is always available to answer any questions or problems that I have encountered in the past, and they make sure that I have everything that I want to make my business operate successfully. I would recommend the FastGrind System to any optical business who is interested in starting up their own optical lab.”
Columbia Eye Center - Florida
"We have been using the FastGrind system for 11 years and the company is always updating the system to keep us current. We just starting using the new ADDvantage progressive and find that it comes very close in clarity and comfort to the Zeiss ID lifestyle, for the price it is a compelling lens to choose. We were paying 20x more for the same quality of lens. FastGrind is the most profitable instrument that we have purchased for the practice"...
Greg Bogart (Optician) - Bogart Vision Care - Illinois
"The ADDvantage lens is the low cost alternative to the more expensive name brand lenses. We have switched our Varilux Comfort patients with no adaptation issues. ‘Seeing is believing’ and it is proven by comparing the lens map of the of the ADDvantage lens along with the drastic cut in lab bills"...
Laura Keith – Shelbyville Eye Care - Tennessee
"This is Laura Keith, Dr. Dale Hasty's daughter. I must say I absolutely LOVE the FastGrind system. The week that I came back to work is the week Dr. Hasty took my mom, brother, and sister to Ireland so needless to say I was just a little busy. After he got back it freed me up a little to learn more about the FastGrind and I've been searching for any job we can possibly do on it ever since! I've messed up a few but its going great!"
Mark Kramer - Brookneal Optical - Virginia
"After using a water bath casting system and the Innotech system, I could not be happier with FastGrind. The quality is far superior to casting systems. Plus, unlike casting, it allows me to give my patients a thinner lens. Other systems may allow you to offer fast service but FastGrind offers me more; it gives me better quality, more lens types (which continue to be updated as new lenses enter the market), and better control on lens thickness. The customer service and technical support from Super Systems is fantastic."
