Our Corporate Foundation

In 1967, Seymour Marco, OD, began a mission to pro­pel the profession of Optometry with the best exam lane and diagnostic technologies available. At that time he could not have imagined the amazing proliferation in vision-diagnostic technology we are all familiar with today. David Marco en­hanced that vision with groundbreaking automated re­fractive devices more than 20 years ago. We are proud that Marco has helped pioneer this evolution across five decades. As The Leader in Vision Diagnostics,® we are committed to offering the finest in both classical and automated diagnostic instruments, for the complete practice. With ‘Marco Connect’, we now make all Marco automated instruments integrate to meet your EMR/ EHR requirements.

Our products are higher quality, more ergonomically designed, better integrated, and deliver more efficient functionality–for the life of any thriving practice. As important, Marco instruments are supported by superior educational tools and courses as well as extended protection programs.

‘The Difference is Marco™’ is not just a marketing statement, but a mission statement we strive to deliver every time you purchase Marco equipment, call our office, send an email, or meet with your Area Manager. No matter where you are in the life of your practice, Marco is available when you need assistance, consultation, or are looking to take the next step in implementing the latest technology. Today Marco continues to shape the industry by redefining both the products and the process of refractive diagnostics.

marco vision for the future

Today our industry faces many challenges that impact EyeCare practices, the professionals that staff them, as well as the patients who depend upon them to deliver best eye care standards. One of the greatest hurdles that all parties face within the practice is the traditional compromise between quantity, quality, and cost- the value proposition. Minimizing this compromise lies at the core of meeting all needs and creating healthy, thriving practices. The challenges are clear:

  • Doctors need to obtain as much relevant data as possible …as quickly and economically as possible…to establish clear and realistic patient expectations, yield best diagnostic discernment, achieve superior treatment outcomes, satisfy patients, and realize critical ROI and profitability.
  • Practice staff members are tasked with increasing daily patient throughput… while providing reliable test methodologies, meaningful patient education, and enhanced workflow productivity- all in a high-tech environment with more engaged and satisfied patients.
  • Patients expect a shorter office visit that still fulfills a greater need to understand their experience, more face time with the physician, and superior optical results that enhance the quality of their lifestyle. Office visits that run efficiently, respect the patients’ time and schedule.

At Marco, we know that the correct combination of technology and process implementation can create a paradigm shift within the practice- redefining the traditional value proposition and creating a new template-standard for technology adoption within our industry.

Time is the hinge pin within each practice. A new generation of Marco technology integration recaptures this precious commodity - allowing each practice to choose how to reinvest ‘time’ for their greatest gain.
