200 Of Seattle’s Independent Eye Care Professionals Learn About…

LEWISVILLE, TEXAS, (December, 2011) “Thanks for a great day of education and fun! We appreciate your investment in private practice and newest technologies in lenses. We only offer our patients the best. Thanks for helping us make that possible,” said a post from Snoqualmie Valley Eyecare Associates on HOYA’s FaceBook page.

Doctors and staffers from Snoqualmie Valley were among the 226 people from 62 practices that participated in The Business of Eye Care Forum©.

Developed and Produced by Cleinman Performance Partners and exclusively sponsored by The HOYA Free‐Form Company, the Forum is a practice leadership university comprised of five programs designed to help independent eye care practices improve their business and patient care. More than 3,000 people have attended a HOYA sponsored Forum in 2011.

“Through our continued support of the Business of Eye Care Forum, thousands of independent practices have a valuable resource visiting their back yard,” said Barney Dougher, President of HOYA Vision Care. “Mark Mattison‐Shupnik from Jobson is part of the curriculum. His presentation on the impact of free form and patient benefits is just one example of the amazing quality this day has to offer,” continued Dougher.

“Bringing this level of quality to big cities like Boston and Seattle and more rural areas like Albuquerque and Little Rock, speaks volumes about HOYA’s commitment to independent practices,” remarked Gregory Hicks, O.D., HOYA’s Director of Professional Affairs.”

“So many people were so pumped up at the event,” exclaimed David Cohen, Territory Sales Manager for HOYA, “they were asking me when they could sign up for the next one!”

The HOYA Free‐Form Company is the sole sponsor of the Business of Eyecare Forum and through their sales team invites local practices to the one day event. Practice owners and their entire staff are invited to participate. Many states honor continuing education credits for the programs as well. Every presentation offers either national COPE (PM) or ABO credits.
