Onsite Lab

What is an on-site lab?

The on-site lab is an optical laboratory that’s located within the facilities at Dr. Gottlieb Optometry. Most optometry practices make use of off-site labs to fabricate your prescription lenses, but Dr. Gottlieb Optometry keeps all of those services in-house, which provides a wealth of benefits to your experience as a patient and customer.

What are the benefits of having an on-site lab?

Having an optical lab on-site at Dr. Gottlieb Optometry cuts out one more step between you and your glasses. When an optometry practice works with an off-site lab, it has to send your prescription details to an entirely different facility, wait for that facility to fabricate your lenses, then wait for those lenses to come back. This means that it takes longer for you to get your lenses, and can even make your lenses more expensive because of shipping costs and facility fees. 

With an on-site lab, Dr. Gottlieb Optometry has more control over making your prescription lenses, which means the process runs more efficiently and effectively, and most glasses orders can even be expedited. They offer one-hour service for most prescriptions, so you can potentially get an entirely new set of glasses during an extended lunch break from work.

The lab at Dr. Gottlieb Optometry is capable of in-office finishing for your glasses, as well, so the team of optometric professionals can cut your lenses while you wait. That means that you don’t have to be without glasses for an extended period of time if you need to adjust your prescription or upgrade your lenses.

What services does an on-site lab provide?

Some of the services that are typically performed at off-site labs but can be done in-house include:


  • Casting
  • Tinting
  • Edging
  • Surfacing
  • Finishing


Moving these services in-house creates a more streamlined workflow for getting you your prescription lenses, thereby eliminating the potential for logistical hiccups and making your experience that much better.
