We have posted a new survey in Vision Online to determine what the average monthly turnover of a practice is in different locations, as well as the monthly rent as a percentage of turn over. In the past we have surveyed the salaries optometrists earn, what the average rental per square meter is, and how many empty chair slots practices have. The results of these surveys are available in the survey section. All you have to do is register with your OP number in order to log into these sections carrying sensitive information. The information obtained in this way can be extremely valuable to optoms. It allows one to draw comparisons of your practice with the industry. The information gathered is done so anonymously, so please take a minute or two to complete the survey.
We have posted 19 CPD points to date with another 4 points awaiting accreditation. By the end of January 2020, we would have posted 30 points in total.
So far there are no optometric events in the local calendar for 2020. Please let us know if you know of a meeting so that we can list it under EVENTS.
Vision for the Waiting Room will hit the streets by mid-December. Please display it in your waiting room, it serves to promote optometry at large.
