Press Releases LION Eye Group Collaborates with OCLI-Spectrum Vision Partners The partnership ‘gives patients more options, while allowing the ophthalmologists of OCLI to concentrate on laser and cataract surgeries.’ Published 3 years ago on February 19, 2021 By Press Releases Share Tweet (PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — LION Eye Group announces it has entered into a collaborative agreement with OCLI-Spectrum Vision Partners (“OCLI”) for integrated eye care. The collaboration was the result of LION’s effort to engage in high quality medical optometry in conjunction with building out a better retail centric business model. The partnership gives patients more options, while allowing the ophthalmologists of OCLI to concentrate on laser and cataract surgeries. James Vena, executive operating partner and interim CEO of LION, envisions integrated eye care as an enhanced bridge between medical optometry and the retail side of the industry, offering a better in-office experience as well as ecommerce for LION signature locations. “While LION originated as an exit strategy, the outlook heading into 2021-2025 may be that we self-finance and partner with venture capital to create a foundation for franchise-like optometric stores.” Related Topics:Latest News TopLION Eye Group click to Comment(Comment) Up Next Donor Support Offers More Doors of Opportunity in Optometry at Salus Don't Miss Ibisvision Breakthrough Remote Optometrist Technology Accelerating Covid Rollout SPONSORED VIDEO Turn Patients Into Loyal Eyewear Shoppers 80% of patients are browsing eyewear online, are you influencing patients online before your competition?
