Expanding Patient Base Prompts Michigan Eye Care Provider Relocation to New, Larger Lansing Office

Lansing, Michigan – January 7, 2019 Rx Optical, Michigan’s leading eye care provider, announced today that they have relocated from their existing Lansing office location to a new, 4,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility located at 5204 W. Saginaw Hwy. The strategic move from their previous office location at 6001 W. Saginaw Hwy. is in response to a need to accommodate for their growing patient base in the Lansing area. Rx Optical’s Dr. Melissa Kong is now accepting patients at the new office.

The updated, free-standing location will provide eye glass lens manufacturing and fitting, medical patient care, eye care solutions for adults and children, contact lens fitting, adjustments, and repairs. Rx Optical worked with Visser Brothers Inc. of Grand Rapids for this relocation project.

“Rx Optical has had a presence in Lansing since September 1993, and because we are dedicated to providing the highest level of service to our patients, we felt that now was the right time for a relocation,” said George Jepson, Rx Optical Vice President of Marketing. “This new space will allow us to accommodate for more patients and improve access of care.”

Rx Optical, which was founded in Kalamazoo in 1947, currently employs more than 350 people throughout their 54 offices in Michigan and Indiana, including six employees in Lansing. In 2019, Rx Optical plans to open new office locations in Kalamazoo and Saline.

“We have been serving the Michigan community for 70 years, providing hands-on solutions at our in-house laboratory and locations,” said Jepson. “From eye exams to eye glass manufacturing to insurance billing, we are constantly striving for improvement in our processes so that we continue to earn our patient’s trust and confidence.”

Rx Optical has locations in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Holland, Grand Haven, Muskegon, St. Joseph, Benton Harbor, Battle Creek, Lansing, Jackson, Ann Arbor, Plymouth, Livonia, Farmington Hills, Allen Park, Southgate, Woodhaven, Niles, Three Rivers, Sturgis, Coldwater, Jonesville, Ionia, Hastings, Angola (Indiana), Kendallville (Indiana), and Elkhart (Indiana).
