Inbox: Letters From Our Readers for December 2017




I always love the section where you let us know what is events are happening that month and the managers to do list. Meredith Nowak, Coffman Vision Clinic, Bend, OR

Editor’s Note: Then Meredith, you will love this month’s Big Story: The Ultimate Calendar!

  • Concerned about the Essilor/Luxottica merger. BJ Chambers, Carrera Optical, McQueeney, TX
  • DIY Eye exams. Robert Johnson Jr., OD, Johnson Family Eyecare, Latrobe, PA

Editor’s Note: Robert, we get it. Telemedicine, online refractions, phone apps … there is a lot to unpack here. Stay tuned!

  • I would love to see our industry stop servicing eyewear that is purchased online. Clients and patients must learn the value of the cost of having a professional fit and fabricate their eyeglasses. Kate Giroux, MacPherson Opticians, Arlington, VA
  • I’m becoming obsessed with the new technology, specifically the technology based apps for taking measurements from a selfie. From what I’ve read the accuracy is amazing. This, more than anything, can change the online eyeglass industry. Rick Rickgauer, Vision Associates, Girard, PA

Editor’s Note: Rick, be sure to check out next month’s issue: Revolutionary Ideas!

  • Scleral lenses – what’s up w/ this increasing popularity? Bruce Krymow, Optivision, Phoenix, AZ

Editor’s Note: Bruce, March’s Better Vision feature addresses just that! Keep an eye out!

On a Positive Note…
  • 2017 has been a very good year. I still feel eyecare is a great profession. Fun to sit back and watch the Healthcare Arena and how it will change in coming years. Texas L. Smith, OD, Dr. Texas L. Smith & Assoc., Citrus Heights, CA
