How Many US Adults Are Planning to Have an Eye Exam Soon?

Some 19.6% of US adults said they were planning to have a comprehensive eye examination in the next three months in The Vision Council’s December 2011 Consumer Barometer report. That figure is slightly up from 2010, when 18.9% said they were planning to have an eye exam in the following three months.

It’s time to review your recall system.  Here are the three steps you should implement today:
Step 1:  Move to a pre-appointing system. It is the most effective of the recall systems.  

Step 2:  Integrate your pre-appointing system with one of the practice management software programs to help you effectively manage your recalls.

Step 3:  Ask each patient for their preferred communication approach.  Is it US Mail, e-mail, text message or some other format?  You need to know this for each patient and use the preferred method with each patient.
