A history of service continues.

What’s in a name? For Bell, more than 50 years of representing the most innovative ophthalmic instruments and the world’s foremost manufacturers.

But more importantly, personal service that goes beyond the sale. As our founder Charlie Bell famously said back in 1962, “The foundation of our company must always remain customer service – before, during and after the sale.” We don’t just sell hardware, design exam rooms, or repair slit lamps. We forge partnerships. The kind you’d expect from an ophthalmic distributor with more than five decades of history under its belt.

Not all instruments are created equal.

Great eye care practices are powered by smart, reliable and well-made equipment. While the technology has evolved since we first opened our doors, our commitment to offering only the top-of-line instruments remains the same.

We select all of our products based on four stringent criteria:
Accuracy. Can my patients count on me for an accurate measurement when it matters most?
Ergonomics and usability. Is it easy to use, or will my techs send me the bill from a chiropractor?
Technological integration. Does it integrate with EMR and allow my practice to run as efficiently as possible?
Aesthetics. Do my patients think I am at the top of my profession with the equipment I use?

Local roots grow better practices.

We cover more ground by staying regional. You’ll find Bell factory-trained technicians all over this four state region.
When doctors in our area need us, we’re just a short drive away. That’s peace of mind you won’t find with national distributors.

Bell covers ophthalmic and optometry practices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware. We treat your practice how you treat your patients.

Considering a new equipment purchase, or searching for ways to make your practice more efficient? Think Bell. Talk to Chuck Bell, our CEO, and let’s get started. Email or call him directly at 1-800-255-5929.
