BizRate then reviews the scores annually for AC Lens, as well as the scores for over 5,000 online retailers, to determine award winners.
This year's win earns AC Lens the Biz Rate Circle of Excellence award for the 3rd consecutive year. "Once again we're pleased to be a part of the BizRate Circle of Excellence," said Dr. Peter Clarkson, CEO of AC Lens. "In these tough times, price and customer service make the difference with the buying public and this award shows we're meeting the needs of our loyal customers."

4. Repurchase Intent after receiving the order
5. Product Met Expectations
