Optometry, like all professions, has a variety of professional organizations that doctors can participate join. There are academic organizations, such as the American Academy of Optometry, that promote the vision research that I write about. There are clinical organizations that promote specialties of clinical care such as contact lenses and pediatric vision. There are also organizations to assist optometrists in business management. This last one is important because, although all optometrists have four years of classes (after college) learning about eyes and vision, they typically have little or no business and management experience.
I have found that one of the most rewarding organizations that I belong to is one that is dedicated to offices like Bright Eyes. This organization is called Vision Source and it is a nationwide network of small, medium, and large independent optometry practices that strive to provide the very highest level of clinical care, the best customer service, and highest quality in optical products.
One of the reasons that I enjoy my membership in Vision Source is that all of its members are very progressive and are willing to try new ways to improve their craft. Vision Source meetings are very fun, because all the members take the initiative to be the best doctors that they can be and have the best offices that they can have.
If you are looking for an Optometrist and you want someone that is going to be very attentive to your needs, you can visit visionsource.com to find a Vision Source doctor near you!
