    Take a look back at our financial challenge predictions from 2016—were we right?

    So to gauge what the new year will bring, we asked experts to weigh in on what challenges they expect optometrists to face in 2017.

    Optometry Times Editorial Advisory Board members John Rumpakis, OD, MBA, and Carl Spear, OD, MBA, FAAO, were joined by Bryan Rogoff, OD, MBA, CPHM, founder and consultant at EyeExec Consulting and president of the Maryland Optometric Association.

    • Increased online disruption

    • Cost challenges for providing services

    • Consolidation, consolidation, consolidation

    • Managed vision care (MVC) plans
