We are serious about privacy! All patients have to opt-in to patient targeted advertisement.

POV software is also free for optical stores because it is transaction fee supported. Suppliers to optical stores and Users will pay a modest transaction fee for all orders that are forwarded from the POV Store Interface to the POV Supplier Interface.
