What is the industry's view of the industry?
Ed Greene, CEO of the Vision Council joins the show. The Vision Council represents the manufacturers and suppliers of the optical industry. Join Ed as we discuss current global trends in eyewear, Internet dispensing and an interesting variety of other topics.
The Power Hour is proudly sponsored by Essilor of America, VSP Global and Optovue.
ODs love to talk. And they certainly love to talk about optometry. After all, it's what they do, and it's what they are. The Internet has several forums and e-mail lists that allow communication among ODs. While these are all good communication tools, e-mail or forum posts don't allow the true nuances, emotion, and passion of the spoken word to be heard. Emoticons can't make up for the inflections and color of the human voice. While these Internet vehicles allow an exchange of information, they do it at the cost of interpretation and timeliness.
But now--that's all changed.
We're proud to bring you The Power Hour, optometry's ONLY live talk radio show that can be heard every Wednesday night at 9:00 PM ET.
The Power Hour is a live discussion vehicle for current practice-building events in optometry, political viewpoints, and clinical topics. You'll also hear from guests--both in and out of optometry.
The Power Hour promises to deliver an entertaining, enlightening, topical and easy-to-listen to discourse on all things optometry--and at times, a few things not so optometry! Because this is a talk radio show, we encourage open and freewheeling discussion from you, our listeners. You can sit back, chill, and listen--or actively join the fray and share stories and
experiences of your own.
Here's a partial list of some previouis shows and upcoming topics:
- HIPAA - are you prepared?
- President of EyeMed, VSP and Luxottica!
- Why is there so much emphasis on medical billing?
- Are there too many ODs or not enough patients?
- Why even bother with contact lenses? It just feeds the 1-800 monster!
- Can optometry exist without vision plans? One OD tells us how he did it!
Tune in every Wednesday at 9:00 PM ET for The Power Hour. It's real time, with real ODs discussing no-holds-barred news and views.
