(PRESS RELEASE) ONEONTA, NY — Cleinman Performance Partners (CPP), the nation’s leading Optometry business development consultancy for larger practices, has announced that its highly successful conference, “Exiting Vision Plans…Profitably” will be held on two upcoming dates. The event provides guidance for Optometrists who want to reduce their reliance on low margin, high maintenance Vision Plans.

“Exiting Vision Plans…Profitably!” is part of Cleinman Performance Partners’ unique Business of Eyecare Forum conference series. The all-day events will be held on Tuesday, April 21st in Phoenix, Arizona and May 12th in Orlando, Florida. This deep-dive meeting will feature speakers with broad knowledge of Vision Plan management strategies.

“Many Optometrists have a love–hate relationship with Vision Plans,” says Cleinman Performance Partners’ founder Alan Cleinman. “What they lack is independent, knowledgeable resources to help them decide how to reduce or eliminate their dependence on deep-discount Vision Plans. Exiting Vision Plans…Profitably! brings together those resources,” he said.

Conference attendees will hear from a cadre of highly experienced speakers who will discuss:

  • How to separate one’s practice from the competition
  • How to understand vision plan economics and financial impact
  • How to attract more self-pay patients
  • How to maximize reimbursements
  • How to plan an exit from vision plans… and much more

“I attended the Exiting Vision Plans…Profitably! Conference and it gave me the tools and methods to analyze what VCPs were specifically doing to our practice and what our practice would likely look like without them. I highly recommend that you check it out,” stated Dr. Andrew Neukirch of Illinois’ Carillon Visioncare.

The conference provides strategies and tactics on how to exit vision plans as well as how to maximize economic opportunity while within plans.

Podcast: Why Optical (and Especially Optical Retail) Is Lagging Behind Other Industries

“CooperVision has a heritage of addressing widespread refractive issues such as astigmatism and presbyopia. More recently, we have taken on even greater challenges such as childhood myopia, not only correcting it but also successfully slowing its progression,” said Daniel G. McBride, president of CooperVision. “Even with the remarkable progress we’re making, no single organization can do this alone. We’re optimistic about what our new partnership with IAPB will mean for millions of children, adults and families worldwide.”

“IAPB are excited about the opportunity to partner with CooperVision to create sustainable and lasting change in eye health, including addressing the substantial global increase in myopia,” said Peter Holland, chief executive, IAPB. “The leadership, insight and innovation of our Patrons regularly unearth new approaches, models and alliances for greater collective and individual impact. By working together, we exponentially increase our abilities to confront and overcome vision impairment issues.”

In addition to its IAPB patronage, CooperVision contributes significant funding, knowledge and time to a range of eye health-focused organizations every year. These include being a founding member of the Global Myopia Awareness Coalition, a Global Platinum sponsor of Optometry Giving Sight, and partner in Our Children’s Vision. As part of its corporate responsibility initiatives, CooperCompanies is also aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, concentrating on good health and well-being, responsible consumption and production and complementary partnerships.

CooperVision develops a range of products designed to aid eye care professionals. Silicone hydrogel soft contact lens brands such as Biofinity and clariti 1 day are worn by millions worldwide. Its myopia care portfolio includes advanced lenses such as Paragon CRT and Procornea DreamLite designed for overnight wear (orthokeratology), as well as innovations such as MiSight 1 day contact lenses for slowing the progression of myopia in children (8-12 years of age at the initiation of treatment).
