Be Profitable. Be Differentiated. Be Independent.



We Are Stronger Together than Apart

TEC is a philosophy, a high-level strategy that can be incorporated to accelerate any practice in any business environment with a focus on independent practices.

After years of watching profits erode and the commoditization of our dispensaries, a novel approach was imperative. Practice differentiation and the premium patient experience are keys to an independent and profitable practice. We did the work for you and aggregated the best-in-class, independent brands in our industry, known simply as TEC—The Eye Consortium.

We have taken it even further to create a comprehensive suite of solutions consisting of products and services for your practice to use to increase profitability and remain independent. We aim to ease the pain points that make running a business difficult and time-consuming, allowing you to focus on what matters most—your patients. Creating a community of like-minded business people allows us to curate a specialized group of vendor partners, focus on maintaining your unique environment, and increase your profitability.
