America's Best Contacts and Eyeglasses
America's Best Contacts and Eyeglasses is a leading source of affordable and discounted vision products.
The company was founded in 1978 by Bill Grody in Chicago shortly after Federal Regulations allowed optical companies to advertise price. The company streamlined the eye exam and production process and began offering deeply discounted eyewear products. In the 1970s, they offered a complete exam and contacts for under $100 along with exams and eyeglasses for under $50. The company also began an aggressive campaign to sell two pairs of glasses at a discounted price.
ABC&E has since developed the largest volume optical lab and has expanded to over 300 locations. In the 1990s ABC&E established a financial arrangement with Bershire Partners, an investment firm in Massachusetts, which acquire ABC&E along with National Vision.
The Eyecare Club is a subscription service for free eye exams along with discounts on glasses, contacts and contact supplies.
