How can strong leadership transform your Optometric Practice?
Strong Optometric Leadership Leads to Strong Optometric Institutions.
The entire Optometric industry as a whole is currently faced with the following challenges:
Deregulation threats from corporates and individuals that want to own optometric practices and turn them to solely retail institutions.
Innovation and technological advances that makes it easier for consumers to access eye care products directly from the manufacturers or suppliers and not the optometry institutions themselves.
Outdated policy frameworks
Unemployment affecting millions of people resulting in limited access to visual care.
Increased costs to products and service offerings.
The “death” of the independent practitioner due to big corporate merger and acquisitions taking place.
Government, organizations, institutions and associations that have different methodologies and strategies as to how to correct visual problems that exist.
Individuals in leadership positions that put their own interests above those of the people they lead.
Lack of involvement from the optometry fraternity on matters of importance regarding eye health and care.
