DOTmed: What differentiates you from your competitors?
Our business has been built by establishing long term relationships with manufacturers, distributors and doctors around the world. We are the only company in the United States that is supported by all of the top manufacturers in our business including Abbott Medical Optics (AMO), Alcon, Ziemer USA, Bausch & Lomb (Technolas Perfect Vision), Nidek, and Lightmed. This means we are able to refurbish and service our equipment using manufacture specific parts to as close to new as possible, but we can also warranty our equipment, as well as involve the manufacturer should we run into a problem we cannot solve.
Combined our company has over 40 years’ experience in the Ophthalmic industry, from the introduction of the excimer laser in Lasik to offering the first used Femtosecond Cataract laser on the market, we have done it all.
Our staff consists of factory trained laser engineers to professionals that have owned and operated their own surgery center, so our knowledge, advice, and the relationships we offer set us so far apart from anyone in this industry.
We also operate out of a luxurious, state of the art 12,000 square foot sales and service laser facility in Tampa Florida that is like nothing else in our industry. Just as we handle our refurbished equipment, our facility was built custom and exhibits every last detail of who we are.
DOTmed: Give us a snapshot of your business.
Laser Locators was created to help doctors buy and sell used lasers, and other ophthalmic equipment, as conveniently and as affordable as possible. Technology changes rapidly and patients are better educated than ever before, and keeping up with what drives patient volume to your practice is essential. We specialize in helping you provide your patients with the latest refractive lasers, surgical equipment, and diagnostic equipment upgrades that help you ensure growth.
Sean O’Donnell, President of Laser Locators, has been in ophthalmology sales and marketing for over 23 years. As the refractive surgery market grew, he saw the need for a comprehensive resource providing doctors with a one-stop-shop for their entire refractive laser and ophthalmic equipment needs. With several years of refractive practice marketing and sales experience under his belt, Sean was a natural fit to fulfilling that need. Sean has honed his skills and knowledge through years of experience with Chiron Vision (now B & L), Summit/Autonomous (now Alcon), and by owning and operating his own refractive surgery center.
