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:
As an eye care professional, you understand the importance of a second pair of workplace lenses for presbyopic patients. However, convincing them of the value of splashing the cash on a task-oriented pair for work can be a challenge.
To help overcome this issue, we partnered with nationally recognized optical training consultant Denise Capretta COMT, LDO, ABOC, NCLEC to offer you five talking points you can use to help your patients easily understand the value of adding a work-specific lens to their everyday eyewear. Over the course of this blog series, we’ll share those talking points with you and how you can use them at the dispensing table.
Welcome to part two in our series on showcasing the value of office lenses to your patients. In our first post, we discussed how to help patients understand the need for a work-specific lens, and why one type of lens doesn’t fit all. In this next post, we’re going to dive into visual comfort and how a task-oriented lens can provide it anywhere your patients get the job done.
Welcome to part three in our series on demonstrating the value of a second pair of work-specific lenses to your patients. So far, we’ve discussed highlighting the customized performance advantages and visual comfort as key talking points when discussing office lenses. In this post, we’ll discuss how a task-oriented lens can make work less of a pain in the neck for your presbyopic patients.
Welcome to part four in this five-part series on helping your patients understand the value of adding a workplace lens to their optical ensemble. Our first three emails listed customization, relief from eye strain, and ergonomic comfort as valuable benefits for patients considering on office lens. In this post, we’re going to discuss a growing issue among the American workforce and how a task-oriented lens can help combat its effects.
Welcome to the final post in our series on task-oriented lenses and how to demonstrate their value to your patients. So far, we’ve discussed how a lens specifically designed for workplace needs can help reduce visual strain and fatigue, alleviate ergonomic discomfort, and help battle symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome.
In the conclusion of the series, we’re going to help you flip the cost conversation on its head and introduce a benefit most patients wouldn’t think of but can’t wait to enjoy once you reveal it to them. And since this is our last post, we figured we'd throw in a bonus talking point.
