How to cultivate teamwork in your practice
There is an old adage that states that there is no ā€œIā€ in team. The most successful results can be achieved only when we all work together to obtain a common goal.
Modernized lifestyle dispensing
Never before have we had such a plethora of choices at our disposal when it comes to offering solutions to visual needs. It seems as though what used to require occasional education on new products and their benefits has now become an ongoing necessity as advances in technology grow by leaps and bounds.
Maximize profits with managed vision care
We often hear that we get out of life what we put into it. How can we change our outcome or results unless we utilize a new approach and vary our vision? I often say that instead of being stressed, we should accept the things we cannot change and find a way to reach a win-win outcome by embracing what we can control. Knowing that managed vision care is a part of our lives let us explore ways to make it more profitable for our practices.
Responding to a request for PD measurements
Most dispensing optometric practices are fielding frequent requests from their patient base to provide pupillary distance (PD) measurements along with a copy of a prescription for eyeglasses. There are varied responses among doctors, the eyecare professionals (ECPs), and other staff members as to how to handle this request.
Simple strategies for successful frame board management
At the heart of every optometric dispensary lies the important job of managing the frame board inventory. This task can appear to be challenging at times, but by following some simple strategies, it will lead to success.
