Before giving a profile of both of these firms I wanted to introduce few things about a word called OPTOMETRY. As there is very less knowledge about Optometry field in India, because every time when a patient walks in a optician shop he or she expect that a EYE Dr. should examine their eyes, which is not at all possible due to very less population of EYE Dr. in India per city OR state, and also due to increment in number of shops are opening without any specific knowledge in this field.
This is happening just because of there is no legalization or rule in India for opening any Optician shop like you requiring a license for opening a medical shop.
This is my serious attempt to make you all aware of Optometry and it's importance in examine your eyes at primary health care level.
