Are you using multiple software programs to view patient ophthalmic images from diagnostic equipment? If yes, consider moving to an ophthalmic image management system that consolidates all the images into one central repository. This allows you to quickly access, compare, pan, zoom, and annotate images from multiple patient visits and devices.
Every day, Dr. Chet Myers, an independent optometrist in Lihue, Hawaii, goes above and beyond to drive customer retention, promote loyalty, deliver top-notch patient care, and spend time outdoors with his wife and twin 15-year-old sons.
Dr. Peter Falk and his partner, Dr. Michael Downs, with ReVision Eye Care, needed a better way to manage eye care software patient encounters and image management, improve office productivity, and enhance the patient-provider relationship.
On June 23, 2020, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced the final rule amending the Contact Lens Rule. Let's review how eye care providers must comply with the FTC Contact Lens Rule and how you can implement workflow options using your eye care EHR and practice management software.

You’re an optometrist or ophthalmologist, but your patients are—simply put—people. They might be stay-at-home parents, managers, students, CEOs, retirees, or any other profession that has nothing to do with contacts and cataracts. Your patients don’t know what you know, and they don’t speak the eye care professional’s lingo.
Your optometry staff is the face of your practice before a patient ever sits in the exam chair or gets fitted for contact lenses. Running a successful optometry practice demands excellent leadership and vision—and recognizing your staff as key drivers of patient satisfaction and revenue growth.
Every day your eye care practice faces challenges. Billing issues, patient communication problems, and server crashes all add up to one thing—wasted time. Inefficiencies create chaos in the office, negatively affect patients, and directly impact your bottom line. You need ophthalmology and optometry EHR software to solve these problems and save you money.
Why have so many eye care professionals adopted optometry EHR software? Because optometry practice management and EHR software have the power to transform the patient care experience. EHR software can also lower your productivity or frustrate you to no end if you choose an inefficient product.
Optometry and optical practices are embracing modern technology more than ever before, abandoning manual approaches that hinder revenue potential and the ability to provide top-tier patient care. Embracing technology is an essential step for improving your processes. However, maximizing technology is how you advance those processes.
