Upgrading your progressive lens choice comes with a lot of anxiety and a ton of questions. Should we implement a change? How would we implement the change?” “Is this new lens really better than the one that we use the most?” “How can we be sure the lens does what the manufacturer says?”
By the end of this series, you’ll not only understand why upgrading your go-to progressive makes sense, but also feel confident about your decision to upgrade, and be armed with the tools and know-how to execute the change successfully.
In this first installment, we’ll address why it might be time for a change.
As an eye care professional who's success depends on the happiness of your patients, the mere thought of changing lens products can send chills down your spine and waves of nausea through your belly. Change is hard - especially if you're moving away from something you've relied on for years, or even decades.
That was the case for Outlook Eyecare in New Jersey, when they were first introduced to Unity Via Progressive Lenses. But Unity Via's technology, performance, and simplicity quickly turned anxiety into exhilaration when they saw the difference it made for their patients and practice.
We chatted with Outlook Eyecare Optical Manager, Grace Danieles, to better understand what it was like making the change initially, how long it took for the butterflies to stop swarming in the team's stomachs, and how things are going now that they put their progressive patients in Unity Via.
VSP recently asked eye care professionals (ECPs) nationwide for performance reviews on Unity's new task-oriented lens. According to the survey results, Unity Via OfficePro has already emerged as a top performer in the workplace. See exactly how it rated and what ECPs had to say in this infographic.
A recent survey shows that almost half of Americans do not know what digital eye strain is. Additionally, most aren’t aware that lenses and enhancements are available to help with irritated eyes or visual issues that arise from daily screen time. These and other concerning findings surfaced in recent digital eye strain research conducted by Jobson/WebMD and by The Vision Council.
Digital eye strain symptoms are surging, while awareness of their cause—and alleviation—remains low. Digital eye strain sufferers are desperate for help. This presents you with a fantastic opportunity to provide them an informative, personalized, effective, and ultimately satisfying experience.
Now you can help your patients understand the symptoms associated of too much screen time, and the lenses available to help reduce them.
Vision Monday magazine recently featured a cover story called “MEGATREND: Screen Time,” examining the intensifying phenomenon of device use, and how it connects to digital eye strain.
Drawing from two recent surveys—a July 2018 VisionWatch survey by The Vision Council, and a new survey jointly conducted by Jobson Research and WebMD®—the publication unearthed some startling, perhaps even alarming trends.
The Unity Lens Matching Tool is an interactive assessment tool that helps gauge a patient’s digital eye strain symptoms and match them with their perfect lens. But before you use it with your patients, there’s probably some questions you’d like answered on it.
So, putting ourselves in your shoes, we put together five questions we’d want answered if we were eye care professionals:
In a recent VSP provider survey,* eye care professionals (ECPs) were asked for their opinions on Unity Via Progressive Lenses. From ECP and patient satisfaction to ease of dispensing and overall performance, Unity’s digital, effortless, customized progressives earned top rankings from industry pros.
Some lens companies will try to convince you that digital eye strain should be treated according to age. But this is far from a best practice—and a recent study* proves it, showing no correlation between age and severity of symptoms. In other words, if you choose the lens according to age alone, you might as well choose it randomly.
Eye care professionals (ECPs) have made their voices heard and the overwhelming sentiment is that they’re extremely happy with Unity Via. A recent survey*conducted by VSP® asked ECPs to rate Unity Via against the top players in the progressive lens space, and the relatively new participant in the category more than held its own.
Here’s a look at a few standout questions and answers from the survey:
