Including the belief that staffing issues and inflation concerns don’t seem to be going anywhere.





CL Sustainability Series in 25 Languages

The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has published a series of infographics in 25 languages that encourage responsible contact lens recycling and disposal with additional languages being added over the coming months. The four designs, intended for professional and consumer educational purposes, include one that puts contact lens-related waste into context with other common products and lifestyle habits; two that explain the best routes for ideal contact lens disposal, and a fourth that reminds wearers not to put contacts into wastewater systems. These free infographics can be printed and provided to patients directly, sent via email or text, or used on social media and practice websites.

Multilingual Myopia Resources

Myopia Profile has introduced its enhanced Managing Myopia Guidelines Infographic. Available in 10 languages, with another seven in development, the free infographic contains two color-coordinated components. The blue section is a chairside reference guide for ECPs offering information on myopia risk factors, prescribing recommendations, follow-up schedules, and evaluation of long-term outcomes. The multi-colored section assists with patient and parent communication tactics, including addressing visual environments, available interventions, the ease of children wearing contact lenses, and myopia management’s importance.

Inflation and Staffing ECPs’ Top Concerns

The Vision Council has released Provider inSights Q3 2023 exploring ECP sentiments related to daily operations of their practices, the eyecare industry, and the economy. Findings show the outlook for the U.S. economy among ECPs has worsened compared to Q2 of 2023, with providers less confident in meeting revenue goals. The report also found hiring remains the biggest challenge for eyecare providers in Q3 and most expect staffing levels at their practices to remain the same. Inflation challenges seen in Q1 and Q2 did not change significantly in Q3. The full report is available complimentary for members of The Vision Council with a paid option for non-members.
