Zenni Business partners are using its solution suite in the following ways:

  • Zenni partnered with Meta in early 2023 to provide VR prescription lens inserts for the Meta Quest 3 headset, catering to 66 percent of American adults needing corrective eyewear.
  • Zenni is fueling U.S. Vision’s e-commerce strategy to enhance its omni-channel presence across 260 retail locations nationwide.
  • Zenni created a tailored shopping experience for PPG employees requiring ANSI Z87.1 Safety Eyewear, available at over 200 locations after a successful pilot program.

“Partnering with Zenni Business will help us to deliver on our long-held mission to provide broader access to premium eyewear for all of our customers, regardless of their proximity to our brick-and-mortar locations,” said Eric Bertrand, chairman of U.S. Vision. “Zenni’s top-tier e-commerce experience provides us with a digital infrastructure that can scale our offerings quickly and easily.”

“We identified a strategic opportunity to revolutionize this industry, and the response to Zenni Business has been extremely positive,” added Brian Persons, head of business development at Zenni Optical. “We have found that a significant number of businesses have been seeking an innovative partner to challenge the prevailing norms. Traditional industry leaders have maintained dominance for far too long, often with a rigid mindset, and our market entry now presents a more progressive alternative.”

Zenni Business offers a suite of end-to-end products tailored to meet individual needs of businesses and insurance companies. Designed for eyecare professionals, Zenni Optical notes that its B2B platform can help grow practices by providing new revenue streams and creating customer loyalty. This can include a curated collection from cost-effective options to designer brands, managed by Zenni to minimize infrastructure investment, ensure seamless execution and hasten time to market.

In addition to broadening partnership with industry innovators, Zenni Optical is also working to support the next generation of eyecare providers.

In January, VMAIL reported the announcement of the 2023 Eye Care Access Scholarship winners. The scholarship program advances Zenni’s commitment to helping the world live better and see better by supporting the growth of the optometry profession in the U.S. The winners each receive a $2,500 scholarship with the opportunity to cultivate a network that plays a pivotal role in their professional development.
