Optical center brings patient-centric care and eyewear to Hudson community
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Shopko Optical, a leader in providing trusted eye care to communities for over 40 years, is pleased to open its new center in Hudson, Wisconsin. The new center, opening March 22, is located at 2220 Badger Drive. It will provide patients with comprehensive eye care services through digital eye exams.
“We are excited to serve the Hudson community,” said Russ Steinhorst, Shopko Optical CEO. “With our new location, we can better meet the needs of the community and continue to provide the well-known patient-centric care that Shopko Optical is known for.”
When patients arrive at Shopko Optical for a digital eye exam, an optician will walk them through a series of pre-screening tests followed by a remote technician performing a complete subjective refraction. Following this, an optometrist will appear on a screen in real-time to complete the exam. If needed, the prescription will then be printed in Hudson’s Shopko Optical for the patient to use. The average appointment time is approximately 30 minutes.
In addition, Shopko Optical’s Kids in Focus program will work with Hudson’s local Lions Club to identify deserving children within the area to receive a comprehensive eye exam and pair of glasses at no charge from Shopko Optical. Those looking to participate can contact their local Lions Club.
Shopko Optical accepts most major vision plans, including EyeMed, Davis Vision, UHC Vision, and many more. Shopko Optical is also an open-access provider for VSP.
