Jane’s Testimonial: How I avoided Laser Eye Surgery and corrected my eyesight in 2 months

Featured

Hi, Jane here…I’ve started wearing glasses for my near-sightedness (myopia) since I was about 6 years old…Then later on in high school, I developed far-sightedness (hyperopia) as well…

So I constantly had to bring 2 different types of glasses with me almost everywhere I went. After I started working, my colleague recommended me to go for laser eye surgery (Lasik) as she had a smooth surgery and didn’t need to wear glasses or contact lenses anymore.

I was seriously considering going for LASIK surgery as well, but somehow the idea of someone cutting into my eyes while I’m wide awake didn’t quite appeal to me (I was very scared actually). I know it’s very safe and the technology has come a long way, but I was a chicken I guess…LOL

Anyway, to cut the story short, I continued to switch between my glasses and contact lenses all these years. The good news is, I stumbled upon this site when googling about what to do to improve my eyesight. It taught me the vision strengthening exercises that I need to do 15 minutes everyday. These were actually techniques invented by Dr. William Bates long time ago, but the ophthalmologists and optometrists don’t really practice it in America, so it’s such a shame.

I also learned that glasses and contact lenses actually ruin our vision in the long run, because it actually prevents our natural body function to correct our eyesight!

I was also quite sceptical about this all natural method, as I was so used to depending on my glasses. However, since the site offers a 60 day money back guarantee and it only cost me $37 for this program, I decided to give it a try since I had nothing to lose!

For the last 2 months, I’ve followed Dr. Bate’s 15-minutes-a-day action plan that literally forces my visual system to work as a cohesive unit to self-correct. I’ve also curbed many of my bad habits that caused my near and far-sightedness in the first place. I’m not perfect, but at least now I know what can worsen my eyesight and I can avoid it if possible.

My eyesight is much better after 2 months (not perfect yet), I’m still doing the exercises everyday and I occassionally need my near-sightedness glasses when reading fine print…but I go about most of the day without my glasses now… And I’m so glad I didn’t have to go through Laser Eye Surgery like my colleague did!

That’s why I highly recommend people like me to try this Dr. Bate’s natural methods, even if you have already scheduled for LASIK surgery.

You’ll also receive 3 bonuses along with the program, which includes a system of formulated eye charts that gauge your visual fitness:

– Classic Eye Chart.
– Interactive Eye Chart Generator.
– Letter Rows & Grid of random tumbling E’s.
– 10 charts for practicing fusion, convergence & divergence.
– Astigmatic Mirror.

Best of all, you’ll also receive unlimited email support from the ophthalmologist once you join the program (You’ll be a member for life). It’s only a one-time-fee of $37 to join, and they’re so confident about their methods that they offer us a 60 day no questions asked money back guarantee. So it’s no risk on our part to give it a try!

One day I discovered the work of Dr. W.H. Bates and it profoundly changed my life and my practice as an optical doctor. It shooked me to the core when I realized:

A) How glasses and contacts are practically guaranteed to ruin your vision over time… (and a little known way to prove it for yourself!)

B) The obvious and overlooked reason why optometrists and doctors are so misinformed and skeptical to Dr. Bates natural vision improvement… (No, it’s NOT a big conspiracy of self-interest and profit like many people seem to think!)

C) Dr. W.H. Bates hidden-in-plain-view secret that speeds up recovery with more than 400% and massively improves Myopia (near-sightedness), Hyperopia (far-sightedness), Presbyopia (Old-Age Sight), macular degeneration, eyestrain, Glaucoma and more within mere weeks of starting the program…

Thinking one thing best.

Hello everybody. I am new to this forum but not new to the Bates Method. I have years of experience of getting it wrong.

I have read from this site a few times and have found the posts helpful and insightful. I am contributing now because of my latest conclusions based on what I have read from others and my own experience.

This is my own success story in that I think I have finally pin-pointed the key to vision improvement. It makes sense of all my past failure and aligns with the teachings of Dr Bates.

Whenever I experienced a clear flash, it came after a moment of focused attention. I often would ask myself afterwards, “What was it I was thinking when that happened?” As for my eyes, I wasn’t even aware I was doing anything with them.

Whenever I experienced a longer period of better-than-usual vision, it was always during a time of generally focused activity. I either didn’t have time to think about my eyes or I had decided I didn’t want to be thinking about my eyes in case I made them strain more and missed something.

There had been times in the past when I would employ a technique such as swinging or shifting, or even a technique of my own devising. These techniques would either be physical or mental in nature. For a while a particular thing would work like magic, giving me near 20/20 vision for longer periods of time over maybe a couple of days or nearly a week. Then it would suddenly stop working and even become a strain. I would be left utterly demoralised, wondering if I will ever be able to see normally. My miracle cure had stopped working and my sight would return to it’s previous state. This happened on numerous occasions with different techniques.

Recently I have realised, after reading posts on this site, that it is not so much seeing one thing best but thinking one thing best which is the key to success with the Bates Method. My own experience backs this up. Over the past several days I have been focussing my awareness. I have done this in various ways such as:

Focussing on the here-and-now. I am not good at living in the present and I find the practise uncomfortable, but as a result all other thoughts about other things outside of the present moment fall by the wayside somewhat and my mind is centralised in the moment.

Thinking generally but simply about the activity I am doing. For example – “I am watching my son’s swimming lesson”. I have to qualify such a thought with things like “This is all I am doing – not straining, just watching”. Basically I am getting the message to my mind that what I am doing is utterly simple.

Letting my attention shift naturally, unforced, between various points such as things going on around me to sensations around my eyes and then maybe back to a visual point or a particular thought which something triggers. This I do in a relaxed way.

Thinking about one thing while maintaining an easy awareness of my visual field. While being aware specifically of both things I think my attention jumps backwards and forwards between what I am seeing and what I am thinking so that my attention is always on one thing best.

I have found that by focusing my attention in general (not just visual attention but mainly mental attention) has brought about a much more consistent and greatly improved level of vision. I still need to practise this and I still have a long way to go but I do believe I am on the right road now.

My theory is that a focused mind brings about focused eyes. I have spent most of my time not thinking about anything in particular but everything at once with dissipated attention. No wonder I’m not terribly “switched on” most of the time! During those times when a technique was working well, I believe that my mind was focused on that technique. I really was thinking one thing best. But I focused on the technique rather than understanding why it was working. After a while I suppose either my brain got tired from focussing too much on one thing, or my general attention began to dissipate again. Not quite sure what happened really. Even now I have to change what my mind is focused on. I need to keep my mind focused on something though and I think it desperately needs the stimulation as I seem to take very little interest in anything. I find that even thinking about mundane things which I look at clears my vision. This is helpful if I am in danger of being bored like when I am waiting in the car while my wife is on a shopping rampage with my credit card after saying she is just popping into the supermarket for some milk.

I would say it’s all about being relaxed, easy thoughts, natural shifting of attention, a holistic kind of awareness, thinking about the things you are seeing, engaging in life with your whole person and whole attention. Would we not rather be truly involved with the world around us without having to think about our eyesight? Isn’t this how normal sighted people operate. They are thinking one thing best and fully engaging their whole being in each moment.

My prescription is -4 in one eye and -3.75 in the other. This is so you know that I do have a not insignificant level of myopia and that the level of vision improvement the Bates Method has gained me is generally substantial.

Hello Jimboaxeman
Thanks for sharing your experience and your thoughts.
I think you are right in connecting these things. My own ‘experiments’ have led me in a similar direction.
There is just one thought I would like to add. Similar to vision, the focus of concentration on one thing is not achieved by excluding everything else of the mind, not by a forced narrowing of the the mind.
Like in vision, which consists of a ‘center’ and ‘peryphery’ and you can’t exclude peripheral vision and only see the center, but you have to see the periphery in a different way, just let things be there as they are. The same way to deal with ‘unnecessary’ thoughts, worries etc, which tend to become more dominant the more I try to exclude them. So I try to let them ‘be unimportant’, ‘step back to the background’ and attach more importance to what I’m doing just now, get more and more ‘involved’ and ‘absorbed’. This is much easier and the focus of attention stays naturally where it should be. If you concentrate on keeping your focus on one thing, excluding everything else, this consumes a lot of energy and ‘tires’ the mind.

Thank you for your comment, Nini. Very helpful and it lines up with my own thoughts on the matter. I still tend to tire my mind out with making too much of an effort to centrally fixate my mind. I know that I can hold awareness of several things at once and it would seem that I will tend to be most aware of one in particular if my attention is allowed it’s freedom. Trouble is I find that I am stopping my attention from moving when I am trying too hard to centralise because of my agenda for clear vision. It seems that we have to forget the quest for perfect or normal eyesight and just engage in life in a naturally focused manner and then the eyesight becomes centrally fixated as well. This is the trick isn’t it? I will take on board what you have said. It is encouraging to find people on the same road which has been discovered by our own experience rather than by what we are told by somebody else.

I think, the ‘trick’ is not to ‘judge’ what you see and not to concentrate on ‘making it better’, as I wrote elsewhere:

Quote:If you get a headache, that’s a sign of too much strain, you are putting in too much effort in seeing as clearly as possible without glasses. To avoid this here an advice: Try to see only “what is there actually”, not in a ‘judging’ way like: “oh, this is too blurry, I should see it more distinctly”.
Allow yourself to see blurry, this takes a lot of strain away and with the relaxation, your sight will improve much more easily.

When you tell yourself: “It is good, what ever I see, let’s just make the best of it.” you will soon discover more and more details in the blur without putting yourself under pressure.

Don’t use your imagination and your knowledge of perfect sight in a ‘destructive’ way, that is to tell yourself how far you are away from this goal but in a ‘positive’ way as a sort of ‘pattern’ or ‘template’ to help your eyes in finding the correct adjustment.
I wrote about it here:
viewtopic.php?p=18833#p18833
and here:
viewtopic.php?p=18472#p18472
with one example of a cure in Bates’ book which impressed me very much.

Thank you. So many times in the past I have given myself an awful migraine headache by trying too hard. Lately I have not experienced much discomfort in my eyes since I have been more aware of my mind’s role in the vision process. As for judging, there has been times when I simply accepted the level of blur and interacted with the world as it was. I just found though that I somehow lost the knack and strain returned. This was one of my previous experiences I mentioned where something worked like magic for a while and then just stopped working altogether. But there was always something to be learned from each of these experiences. I think also that we sometimes need the attitude whereby we think “This is how MY eyesight is and if it stays this way then I will learn to sense the world around me in other ways. I will not let poor eyesight stop me connecting with life.” As long as we decide to be focused in our general perception of the world our eyes will do the same anyway. One way of being focused it to simply be mindful of the things we see – what is it? What does it do? Who put it there? Already I am focusing my mind and my being on something rather than the bored indifference which has become habit – and a hard one to break!

I’m not quit there with using my visual imagination. I think maybe it is too strained at the moment. I find that some Bates principles do nothing for me until I have reached a certain level of relaxation or understanding from personal experience and then I find they make sense and work for me better.

I am grateful for your advice. I need to learn from people, like yourself who are some steps ahead of me in this.

This sounds like everything I have been going through, 4 times I have slipped into long clear vision 3-7 days at a time, and when it goes, I do the same thing as before but without results, and for me it usually follows by 3 days off more than normal strain. But I have trouble getting back into that state again, until I completely give up everything, which I can very rarely do. I always need unusual little triggers that relax my whole body for it to be successful.

Hello Eaglevision,

It is a frustrating business isn’t it? But I always concluded that that these different occaisons must have had at least one thing in common, and that being mental focus. It seems that we have to change what we focus on frequently and I think we need to ask “What is the easiest thing to mentally focus on right now?” If we are busy and into what we are doing we needn’t ask the question but there are times when being focussed on a task doesn’t seem to bring clear vision. It could be that we are failing to focus in a relaxed way and on one thing best at a time. We cannot really synthesise this central fixation of the mind without straining just as Nini is saying, so relaxed attention is the way forward. I think that when we find something which works, after a while we start to demand that it works. Couple that with the anxiety that it may stop working and there you have it – straining, putting pressure on ourselves, treating the eyes like slaves etc. I often think about how people with normal vision see and these are the thoughts which come up:

No effort,
Unaware of the eyes,
No anxiety or expectation of failure to see,
Vibrantly focused on whatever is grabbing the attention.

You mentioned completely giving up your attempts to see clearly. I remember when I made a decision out if sheer frustration to completely give up on the Bates Method and go back to wearing glasses. I immediately had an impressive clear flash. So, I didn’t, i the end, give up. But there is something to learn from this.

Thanks for the suggestions,
sorry, by ‘give up’ I mean’t on the previous method that got me initially focused. So I needed to find or develop something new.
I am with you when you say mentally focused is the only thing in common and must be the way forward,
and that is perhaps the reason why this is the only way for me the flash lasts longer that a day.
this relaxed attention does seem to be the key however for me at the moment it is easy when I am in it,
however a little hard to get, once it has left me. I do hope this will change with time though.
one last thing if I may, since you came to this realization (of thinking one thing best), how long did it take for you to easily grasp this mentally focused state back once it left you or maintain longer periods of this state.
Thanks for sharing this with us, its always great to hear success story’s.

I am still new to practising the mental focus, but I find in order to regain it I make myself aware of the here-and-now. I make myself more aware of what is happening around me more than anything else going on in my head. I will focus on the particular thing I am doing, rather than just doing it without thinking, or going onto “auto-pilot”. The present moment really is the most important thing as it is all we really have. I am often thinking about the future or a number of things I feel I have to do today rather than living in the moment. This is a long in-grained habit for me. I think also it is important to let thoughts about the clarity of your eyesight become less important. Another tip I picked up in this discussion. So I intend to absorb myself in what I am doing now without too much concern for my vision. What I am doing right now is more important and calls for more attention than thinking or worrying about my eyesight or anything else not relevant to the moment but which would otherwise steal my best attention. This way I am often finding an immediate positive response with my vision. Sometimes it takes longer if my eyes are feeling tight.

For me the easiest way to get this mentally focused, relaxed attention is watching TV.
I have a rather small screen (21″) in a distance of 10 feet (next to my eye chart). In the beginning it was hard to resist the urge to put on glasses to really enjoy what I see. Now it usually takes only a few moments to see better than at the time, when I had my contact lenses in my eyes; I see all the details very clearly and can read very small texts – still fluctuating a bit, but more and more stabilizing.

I use this sort of ‘vsision practice’ to ‘investigate’ and find out, what I am doing exactly with my eyes during that time, what leads to better vision and what is hindering; that is sensing the muscle tension – how much and where I have to ‘manipulate’ and where I just have to ‘let go’. This is not a single act, but a process to find more and more the right way to ‘support’ and ‘guide’ the focusing of my eyes without directly interfering with the work of the eye muscles. The more I manage to find to this ‘indirect guidance’, the more I feel, that I can loosen the tight ‘direct grip’ on the eye muscles and they become more and more ‘flexible’ and reactive; vision improves.

This sort of feeling I try to find again in other situations and ‘reproduce’ the relaxation; and – if I can’t get it – try to find out what is going wrong. This helped me to progress, but my vision is still best while watching TV.

I know what you mean by watching TV and it is a good way to lose yourself in something interesting. I like your balanced approach as well in that you know when to manipulate the eye muscles and when not to. I have had times when my primary focus has been on physically relaxing my eye muscles and it has worked well at the time, but it certainly does not work all of the time, not even half the time.

This morning I was straining because my underlying objective to the thoughts which I thought I was thinking best was just to see clearly. So I forgot about seeing and put more attention on my task. The tightness left and my vision cleared. As a result I was thinking (as I have done before) that maybe we need to forget we are myopic? But no, as you said, I just need my clear vision agenda to become less important than what I am doing now. I realised that my best thought was on seeing, or at least my thought on seeing was equal in attention to the task in hand. Hence, strain. Seeing clearly must become less important. I cannot forget it, but that is ok, as long as it is in the background and I am able to put my best attention on something else. This is thanks to your advice.

It’s helpful to read about your progress and your successes. I also am working out of a similar myopic hole, -4.25 and -3.75 diopters. I am curious if you also have astigmatism which causes you to see double images? Also, what do you think was the cause of your vision problem…excessive reading, video games, etc.?

I’m still not sold on the idea that the cure to my vision problem is mainly mental focus, but I can evolve….Just not there yet.

Hello lou_deg,

Yes I do have a degree of astigmatism. I don’t have my full prescription handy but I get a lot of double images, especially with small LED lights.

I could not pin point the particular cause of my myopia. It started when I could not read the blackboard very well at school from the age of about 13. I think it must be down to some kind of stress and anxiety. I think that when we used to have normal vision we were given the impression that we should have perfect sight all of the time. This isn’t true. So when we notice an occasion of less than clear eyesight we don’t accept it as normal eye behaviour, perhaps responding to some anxiety. Instead we think there is something seriously wrong and the next thing is we are carted to the opticians and have spectacles clamped to our heads. Thus begins the downward spiral of worsening eyesight.

Your vision journey is your own and I wouldn’t try to embrace any ideas which do not make sense to you now. I get nothing but strain from doing Bates prescribed eye exercises, so I don’t do them. There may come a time when my eyes will respond better, but other things need to fall into place first. I think we all arrive at different places at different times and piece the jigsaw together in a different order. As the puzzle becomes more complete, the things which didn’t make sense to us or work for us before are presented with a new understanding. Enjoy the journey and do what works for you now.

jimboaxeman Wrote:I get a lot of double images, especially with small LED lights.

Yes, I only need to buy one set of Christmas lights on the tree because they appear plentiful already.

It is a fun journey to becoming less dependent on glasses. Glad to have the company of others to share experiences. Looking forward to hear when you achieve your perfect, focused thought. You must be very close if you are able to temporarily get rid of your double images that way.

Lol.

I think we are always close to perfect sight, but in the same way as getting lost somewhere until you realised you passed your destination several times!

It really does seem to be a wrong thought which causes the problem, and the change in mindset is so small that we don’t notice what it is. When I have experienced the flashes, (and I have had them come back again recently as a result of practising mental focus,) it is like my mind is clear as well. When this happens it is just as difficult to pinpoint what was wrong in the first place. It is like clearing your mind of all agenda for perfect vision, a moments distraction from the tyranny of effort.

It helps me sometimes to think (or remember?) how I would interact with life if I had normal vision. There is sense of just being able to get on with life, no bothersome thoughts about trying to see clearly, confidence to relate to the world, freedom, clarity….and whatever else comes to mind about such a state.

Another thought I sometimes use is to think my sight is fine but I am viewing the world through a misted pane of glass. This has brought about some flash-like quality vision. It may not work for particularly long as your mind will tire, but it demonstrates a bit more about how your vision processes work and can be of help in reprogramming and relearning visual perception.

Today I was watching a film on TV and I involved my imagination a lot more in that I was familiar with the film and anticipated through my imagination the scenes of the film as they were playing. A tricky one but again this brought some good quality visual clarity. Not sustainable for long for me but another lesson in the school of seeing.

I try to let my mind and my eyes teach me. Sometimes you just got to sit back and let go of the whole thing and allow your vision processes some space to do the right things automatically.

Effects of diet on vision

Hi everyone! I am new here. I recently found out I have an intolerance to gluten, so I started a gluten free diet about 6 months ago. Since then I’ve had to have my prescription reduced twice. It was -6.75 in both eyes and now I am wearing -4.00 and am able to read the 20/40 line on the snellen. I haven’t done any excercises, so it must be the new diet that is improving my vision. I did find others with similar experiences on a website for people with Celiacs disease (Gluten intolerance). Anyway, I just wanted to share my results with everyone. I will keep you updated on my progress. Mike

Mike, sorry you never got a reply to this. I would be interested to hear how it’s going for you at this point. I do believe that gluten or other elements in wheat have a bad effect on health in general.

Hi Mike,

Yeah, it’s a shame your post got missed, as it’s a very interesting one. Food intolerances can cause blurred vision, but I was only aware salicylates did that. I’ve got a sensitivity to both wheat and salicylates. After majorly reducing both (which isn’t particularly easy), I’ve noticed better vision also.
Please keep us posted on your progress. Have you got the web address for that gluten intolerance website? I’d be interested in having a look.

Cheers,

Vision Plan Customer Satisfaction Declines, J.D. Power Finds

Primarily driven by challenges with cost and coverage, overall satisfaction among vision plan members decreases by 4 points (on a 1,000-point scale) to 753 in 2018 from 757 in 2017, according to the J.D. Power 2018 Vision Plan Satisfaction Report.SM

“Convenience and reasonable costs are essential to having satisfied and loyal customers,” said Greg Truex, Managing Director and Healthcare Practice Leader at J.D. Power. “If vision insurers can find a way to bring down costs, specifically for contact lenses, as 84% of consumers find those costs are least reasonable and provide services to find an optometrist or ophthalmologist, they will have satisfied clients that are more likely to recommend their plan to others.”

Study Rankings

UHC/Optum and Highmark/Davis Vision/HM Insurance(773, respectively) rank highest in customer satisfaction with vision plan insurers, performing particularly well in the communication, customer service, and reimbursement factors for UHC/Optum; and in the coverage, and cost factors for Highmark/David Vision/HM Insurance. EyeMed (760) ranks third and VSP (749) ranks fourth.

The 2018 Vision Plan Satisfaction Report is based on responses from more than 1,000 vision plan members. The study was fielded in October 2018. The report, now in its fifth year, measures customer satisfaction with vision plan providers based on five factors (in order of importance): coverage; cost; communications; customer service; and reimbursement.

Brice: -7.25 Down To -4.50 (Plus Reduced Child Myopia)

Today let’s take a quick look at a great e-mail from Brice, who managed to reduce diopter dependence for himself, and his entire family.

While I only manage to post a small amount of the total improvements being made by endmyopia followers, ones like this are pretty instructional.  All it takes is one family member to take the lead.  Learn about the biology basics, learn about diopter dependence, learn about the realities of myopia, as well as reversing myopia.  Then make your own progress and once you’ve proven to yourself that it’s possible, apply your knowledge to the rest of your family.

Before you know it, several lens customers of big optometry are no longer part of the money making scheme.  That and you now have one more thing to bond with family members.  More new outdoor hobbies, more involvement with your own biology and well-being, less dependence on dogmatic beliefs about “illness” and genetic defects.  Win for everyone!

Here’s Brice’s e-mail:

All the gains.

Also remember to send me your improvement reports.

One thing I’ve learned over the years that most people won’t let me know what’s going on, unless I specifically ask (hence my checking in once every six months or so, see what’s new).  A great way to “pay back” endmyopia for all the free resources, is sharing how you benefit form them.  So many readers really enjoy progress updates!

So fire off a quick e-mail, or post in our Facebook group (or private form), let us know how you’re getting on.

Cheers,

-Jake

Why were optometrists in quebec unsuccessful in blocking internet sales?………….

WHY WERE OPTOMETRISTS IN QUEBEC UNSUCCESSFUL INBLOCKING INTERNET SALES?

A similar action taken by the Ordre des optometrists du Quebec v. Coastal Contacts Inc. ruled in favour of the company against the Ordre (College) in December 2014. What was different then and there?

Turns out, words do matter! The Quebec case is distinguishable in the detailed definition of the practice of Optometry in Quebec’s code, which includes the words “sale and replacement of ophthalmic lenses.” The decision in the Quebec case is driven by the word “sale”. The law of British Columbia ruled the day since it was determined that the sales contract between the company and the resident was substantially entered into in BC, and that the product was only “delivered” to a resident in Quebec.

“Dispensing is qualitatively different than selling”,wrote the Justice. As such, notwithstanding the position held by the Company and their attempt to draw parallels with various classes of pharmaceutical agents, the Judge returns to the basic tenets of the Ontario Legislation;“…what professional (optometrists and optician) is responsible for providing the health care associated with obtaining eyeglasses and contact lenses(“prescribing”, ”preparing”, ”fitting”, “adjusting”, “adapting” over the internet from Coastal and Clearly? I repeat, apparently this is not one.”

NO HARM, NO FOUL

Clearly’s counsel additionally submitted that controlled acts should be narrowly interpreted and that evidence of “risk of harm” is a requirement of the Colleges; “Despite the recommendations of two seasoned regulatory law firms, the colleges have not introduced any evidence of the risk of harm.”

The Court however held that the risk of harm assessment is intrinsic to the controlled act (“Dispensing”) definition in the related legislation and that the Court has no role in the risk assessment of harm. To suggest otherwise, is, according to the decision, “…to negate the value of the regulation.”

SO, NOW WHAT?

Clearly is appealing the decision. While the appeal process is underway, Clearly plans to continue to service customers in Ontario.

Clearly representatives advised the following; “Clearly is committed to making vision care accessible worldwide and believes that the Internet is complementary to other distribution channels”, says Clearly Managing Director Arnaud Bussieres.

“Clearly is well-known for accessibility, affordability, consumer satisfaction and quality of service throughout its eighteen years in business,” added Bussieres.
According the company, Clearly has a history of engaging in dialogue with optometrists and opticians across Canada to find areas of collaboration and ways to provide better products to consumers. “We don’t see this decision impacting our progress and ambitions of working directly with eyecare professionals to address opportunities for additional vision care access in the market,” commented Bussieres.

The Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO), upon request, indicated they were “not in a position” to comment, given that the application was brought on jointly by the College of Optometrists and College of Opticians.

A statement from the Ontario Association of Opticians was not available at the time of publishing.

Discounting & Promotion Strategy Help

You have to have a strategy.

For example, if you have too much inventory, you can use a discount to blow it out. Discounting is easy.

A promotion, however, is a lot of work. You have to get a solid ROI on your time. Therefore, money off is not the main enticement. It should be an all out push on every patient. A program. Balloons or whatever. An “ask me about” button on the staff or something.

I would promote something that would create a buying habit. For example, Rx sun. Or computer glasses. Or, a nice add-on like AR. Stuff that will pay off, over and over again.
