Eye care professionals use our products to check product specifications, set pricing, verify managed care information, and manage their inventory systems.

Frames Data® E-Products

The Frames Quarterly CD-ROM and monthly SPEX/UPC CD-ROM provide all the data in our print publications in a format compatible with nearly every practice management program available, facilitating automated inventory management and search capabilities, saving significant time and manual effort for the practice. The CD-ROM also works by itself as a stand alone program, allowing users to easily search for frames, maintain inventory, and print out ordering information. TRACING POINTS is a database of over 80,000 frame shapes, and can be used with many laboratory management software systems to determine optimal blank size requirements for uncut work. DRILLING POINTS is a complete database of shape and drilled feature attributes for drilled rimless eyewear styles. It is compatible with manual and automated drilling machinery, most major laboratory management software systems, and is available in versions for both the wholesale optical laboratory and in-office finishing labs. Our electronic products are available by themselves or at a special discount price to our current print subscribers.
