Tricks and Tips to Keep Your Practice Healthy

Saturday - October 20, 2012
Mixing traditional lenses with digital creates learning opportunities as we usher out the old and bring in the new. The challenge is to keep your practices bottom line healthy and your patients happy!

Join Aspen Optical as they take you on an educational journey that will accomplish all of the above and then some!  Keeping this education day informal and hands on, Aspen will walk you through top tricks and tips that will keep your practice healthy, your patients happy and most of all your life headache free!

Aspen Optical’s Summer Tip – Glare Free

All glare free lenses are extremely sensitive to heat.

Linda Atwood’s helpful hint: take the lenses out of the Zyl frame before you heat adjust to keep the glare free from crazing. Also, remind your patients not to leave their glare free lenses in the Arizona heat i.e. in their car or by the pool.

Thank you and have a fantastic day!

"You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus." Mark Twain"

Meeting your customers' expectations and providing the best visual solution for each requires figuring out how your patients use their eyes everyday. Take a few minutes today and think about how that conversation goes each day and what you would change to make it different.

Use your imagination and turn the table - how would you like the experience to play out if you knew nothing about the optical industry?

Hints:
Use terms they understand!
1.67 means nothing to your patient, thin and light makes sense!
AR makes them think about accounting, No-Glare or Glare Free is to the point and easy to understand.

Questions are a tool to get your patient talking about how they use their eyes each day! Yes/No questions will give you limited information; open ended questions require more words! 

Do you spend time on a computer everyday? Yes/No
How many hours a day do you think you spend on a computer or looking at your phone texting or searching for information each day?  OPEN Ended

Do you like your current eyewear?  Yes/No
What do you LOVE about your current eyewear and what would you change if you could? OPEN Ended

Put on your thinking cap and get creative - it helps your patient experience and keeps your day exciting!

Aspen Optical's Optician Training Center is Here!

Congratulations to Linda Atwood who launched the Aspen Optical Optician Training Center today! Linda has been conducting very successful ABO and NCLE Prep classes at Aspen for the past 2 years, helping opticians prepare and pass their state exams. 

Today another layer has been added as she started her first Beginner Optician Boot Camp! This 7 week training meets one day a week for 3 hours and will take a brand new member of your team and teach them the basics, giving them a solid foundation to build on. The class is offered to loyal Aspen customers as our way of saying, "Thank you for your business!"

"My dad, Bob Kathe, always wanted an optician training center at Aspen Optical because he felt education was so important in the optical industry. I'm glad we accomplished his dream today, he would be so proud of Linda and Aspen's goal to keep education and training a priority at Aspen." Dave Kathe, President, Aspen Optical.

For more information on this training opportunity for your new team members or to sign up for future classes, contact Linda Atwood at (480) 338-9451
