“Throughout the challenges of 2020, IDOC has been here to support the business interests of our members and the optometric industry as a whole,” said Dave Brown, president and CEO. “We have seen the positive impacts of keeping our community connected and informed and are pleased that we have greatly assisted IDOC-affiliated practices return to strong business growth in 2020 and look forward to continued growth in 2021.”

Over the past twelve months, IDOC has launched multiple new benefits for its members, including a redesigned website and expanded consulting team, Social Media Marketing services and a partnership with Illinois-based United Eye Care Providers (UECP), a leading group of private practice optometrists that are focused on advancing medical optometry expertise for independent ODs, including providing unique Continuing Education coursework throughout the year.
