Are You Buying the Right Frames for Your Optical?

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 |
I often get asked this question when I am on the podium or consulting for a practice. It’s a great question. The simple answer is--probably not. Buying the right frame inventory is definitely an art form. But it also has a very specific formula that you can follow to maximize your sales and ultimately your inventory turn. Though selling is a very important part of the process, buying may be even more important. If you don’t buy the right mix of frames then you will not be able to maximize sales. Additionally, if you don&rsquo  Read More

How's Your Optical Doing?

Thursday, April 09, 2015 |
Have you ever thought about what you do every day? Do you have a routine? Is it the most efficient way or just the most comfortable way of doing things? When I go into practices as a consultant, the very first thing I do is watch what things that each doctor and staff member does. In most instances practices could improve their efficiency by 20-40% and improve their bottom lines substantially by just analyzing what each and every person in the office actually does every day. This process is called workflow efficiency analysis. It is  Read More

The Health Care Book List

Friday, March 20, 2015 |
What was the last good book that you have read? As you think about that let me narrow your decision to the last good business book you read. If you can’t remember the name of the book or how long ago you read it then it’s time to re-evaluate how and what you learn. If you spend time building your knowledge about your business and implement changes from what you have learned then your business will grow. You will likely expand your own personal horizons as well. Unlike a medical text book, chalk full of statistic  Read More

Enhancing Your Contact Lens Practice

Thursday, February 26, 2015 |
This week we are going to focus on enhancing your contact lens practice. This is an area of the practice that is often forgotten or overlooked. There are a few reasons for this. Either a practice says “we are doing fine” or that what can I do, the big box stores or online are killing me! Sound familiar? In both cases-not true, at least in my opinion and experience. As you know, every part of your practice has to be competitive and profitable. Your contact lens business is no different. Follow these steps and improv  Read More

Enhancing Your Annual Supply Sales: Opportunity or Impossibility

Tuesday, February 10, 2015 |
This week we are going to focus on enhancing our annual contact lens sales. There are two reasons why we want to focus on this subject. First, there is a moral and ethical issue with only allowing a consumer to buy a partial order of contacts. Second, there is a HUGE financial difference between selling a pair of boxes of contacts and selling an annual supply of contact lenses. Let’s first review the philosophy of an annual contact lens supply. I once had a doctor in one of my seminars ask what the big deal was abou  Read More

There are potentially hundreds of things that you could focus on to build your practice. However, to create that future, yo  Read More

Concierge Eye Care: Opportunity or Impossibility?

Friday, August 01, 2014 |
With all of the changes in healthcare and the ever increasing complexity of managed care there is an increased discussion about the opportunity of concierge medicine in the eye care space. This endeavor is not for the faint of heart or the ill-prepared, but if done strategically, it provides a fresh opportunity for select practices and creates a new niche for other practices. In most communities there is a select group of consumers who desire and are willing to pay for higher levels of product and services. We are seeing an increasing n  Read More
