What you should expect to pay for Ophthalmic equipment repair and service
Fresh equipment is generally covered under 1 year warranty, so paying for the repair and service usually is not needed until then.
Some bigger firms may consider hiring an in-house ophthalmic equipment repair and service team that will be accessible at any time. This can save them money and time when it comes to continuous repairs, tune-ups and preventative maintenance of different pieces of equipment used on a regular basis.
Anyway, hiring a technician can be pricey; mainly considering that, for most of the time, there will be no services or repairs.
Making one-time service calls, and calling for quick repairs, may cost less than hiring a permanent staff technician, depending on the pieces of tools that are being serviced.
Others have opted to buy service plans. There is a big range of choices when it comes to purchasing a service plan, and the plan can be purchased either for the entire tool or specific, high-use parts.
As a rule of thumb, service and maintenance will cost far less than buying a new ophthalmoscope. Depending on which piece of equipment you are having serviced, preventive care may cost anywhere between several dollars to many thousand dollars based on the repair urgency, and the piece that needs fixed.
Some pieces, though, like many optical lenses, may cost more in repair than it would cost to change. It is a best idea to keep this in mind and perform research to put a repair and maintenance plan in place, so that when something occurs, every person is on the same page and knows what to do.
