Capturing Growth Opportunities in Optometry

Richard Edlow, OD, known as “The Eyeconomist,” provides a forecast of where growth will be found for optometry over the next 15 years. High-impact growth areas include treating glaucoma, dry eye, myopia management and neuro-optometry for eye fatigue and concussions.

Top Growth Areas for Optometry
Top Steps to Capture Growth Opportunities
 

MEDICAL EYECARE A TOP OPPORTUNITY. From glaucoma to macular degeneration, medical eyecare services are the place where growth-minded ODs should focus.

OPTIMIZE NEED FOR EYECARE. The number of ophthalmologists is static, while the number of ODs is growing. You can fill the gap in medical eyecare left by the relatively small number of OMDs.

 

 

 

IDENTIFY MEDICAL EYECARE TO GROW. Areas of interest with potential could include dry eye and ocular surface disease, for instance, or co-management of eye surgery.

MYOPIA MANAGEMENT GROWTH. Myopia management can help you bring more families into your practice providing a service that helps young children and teens.

NEURO-OPTOMETRY NEEDED. Medical eyecare that serves those recovering from injuries like concussions also will be in demand.
