In most Optometry practices 40 to 50% of their gross revenue is eyeglass sales. Patients say the reason they go to their optometrist is to purchase glasses. When evaluating the revenue split for a pair of glasses, the frame and the lenses are typically each 50% of that total revenue. Effective management of the patient management from the examination to the purchase of their eyewear can have a tremendous impact on the finances of the practice. There are best practices that should be adopted by the team from the making of patient appointments through examination and then the selection of frame and lens, ordering of the lenses and the dispensing of eyewear to create a lifechanging experience for the patient. In this course we will evaluate best practices in the areas of each focusing on the role of the team in each.
