Eyecare is one of the most flexible careers around. That's a major theme of our June issue, which is online now.
In our monthly America's Finest feature, we have the story of an optometrist who had already started one practice in Chicago but who, after glimpsing a more laid-back lifestyle in Oregon, launched a second one there -- but not before he took a year off to camp, hike and consider possible Portland locations.
We also have an article about six optometrists who’ve chosen to practice part time. One is just getting started; another is easing into retirement; all wanted more time for family, friends and hobbies. And our "Big Story" is on how many eye docs and opticians are inspired by independent business people from other fields.
These stories are fitting fare for June, since summer can be a time to shake things up a bit. We hope you'll see this season as one of renewal -- and that goes for your subscription, too. INVISION is free to eyecare pros in the United States, but every year, you need to reconfirm that you still want to have our smart, business-building advice delivered to your mailbox.
So if you haven’t filled out one of our subscription cards for a year or so, it’s time to renew. And if you haven't previously signed up for the print edition, what are you waiting for? Either way, sign up online now, and you won't miss an issue. Do it soon so you'll be sure to receive the July/August issue, which will feature our America's Finest Class of 2015 -- 10 vision care businesses that are among the nation's most innovative and inspirational.
