FT. WAYNE, IN – Eye Pro, Inc., world leader in disposable Eye Protection for indoor tanning and makers of Ultra Gold WINK-EASE, Lash Room WINK-EASE and WINK-EASE Dark, is offering salon owners a FREE step-by-step guide on how to stop providing shared eyewear and sell it, instead.
“Salons are always looking for ways to make a profit on accessories,” explains Brenda Fishbaugh, Eye Pro President. “Sometimes, salons don’t realize the expenses involved in providing eyewear for free instead of selling it,” she continues. “We’ve created the handout called, ‘Making the Switch: To only SELLING Eye Protection’ with easy, step-by-step instructions to help operators implement a new policy of not providing eye protection and stop losing money on it.”
Goggles need to be disinfected properly and most salons don’t follow the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) instructions and manufacturer’s instructions. “Did you know solution is required to be mixed daily and goggles must soak for ten minutes?” Fishbaugh asks.“Or, that clean goggles need to be in a covered container to avoid contamination?”
Shared eyewear is expensive and poorly cleaned eyewear can spread colds, flu and eye infections to tanners.“Thousands of salons have made the switch to just selling goggles and WINK-EASE disposable eyewear,” says Jackie DeWald, Eye Pro Office Manager. “Selling each pair of WINK-EASE for 50 cents or a dollar makes a big difference on the bottom line.”
Only three states now require eye protection to be provided for free by salons: New York, Pennsylvania and Texas. New Jersey and Ohio no longer require salons to provide it free. Salons in Kentucky, New Hampshire and Iowa MAY NOT allow tanners to share eyewear, since it spreads disease if not disinfected properly. Salons in all other states may choose whether tanners purchase eyewear or salons can provide disposable WINK-EASE at no cost to tanners.
