Our Laboratory

Log In

Today’s optical world requires that both ECP and supplier be resourceful, innovative, and adaptable. If the pandemic of the last 15 months has taught us anything it’s that “business as usual” no longer applies.

That’s why we have rebranded our portfolio of businesses and services (which includes Central One Optical, Cherry Optical, Homer Optical, Opti-Stock and the Central One Buying Group) into one diverse but single business entity—The Network of Labs. We accomplished this to reaffirm our extremely focused commitment to you, the independent eyecare professional.

You need to have suppliers that you can depend upon, certainly, but also ones who bring you quality, innovation, unique, exclusive products, expert service, and creative marketing—all in a “one stop shop” environment. We also believe that that supplier needs to be easy to do business with and always responsive to your ever-changing needs.

The Network brings to you over 100 years of collective optical laboratory expertise, and a commitment to technology which has never been stronger. We are able to offer the most technologically advanced No-Glare processes from top industry brands, as will as a host of proprietary, private-label products. We offer both digital and conventional lens surfacing, and unsurpassed, quality lens finishing.

We at The Network vow to stay at the cutting edge of innovation in optical products, services, marketing assistance and communications with our customer base.
