NIKON OPTICAL USA and ANAGRAM, a software suite for independent eyecare professionals (iECPS), have formed a partnership to provide patients rebates on Nikon Lenswear through Anagram Prosper. Participating iECPs will enjoy access to special wholesale pricing on Nikon Lenswear and patient-facing rebates sent through the Anagram platform, the companies said in a statement. “The partnership between Nikon Optical and Anagram is driven by a shared goal: to give independent eyecare providers the tools and materials they need to grow their practices with freedom of choice,” explains Jeremy Bluvol, CEO and co-founder of Anagram.

Through this new partnership, the Anagram Prosper program allows providers with Nikon Optical accounts to offer cash back rebates directly to patients who purchase Nikon Lenswear lenses.

“Beyond an iconic brand name, Nikon is a precision optical company that has been ranked amongst the most respected in the world. Over the years Nikon Optical USA has established itself as the perfect partner to help create future value by empowering all iECPs to grow and adapt to an ever-changing market,” says Everest Pandya, director of business development for Nikon Optical USA.

He adds, “Anagram’s powerful mission statement built on price transparency, supporting private pay practices and moving vision care forward completely aligns with Nikon Optical’s goal to allow iECPs to operate with no compromises. We’re very excited about our partnership, as it is the coming together of two organizations with the ultimate goal to foster sustainable growth for all iECPs.”
