The Vision Council, a nonprofit trade association, is pleased to offer free services and materials for eye care professionals. We are dedicated to improving the eyewear industry and helping eye care professionals educate their communities and grow their practice by offering the following:
• Free Patient Magazines and Education Materials: An educated optical patient is the best patient, which is why The Vision Council offers free optical patient education materials. Our marketing materials, available at www.thevisioncouncil.org/ecp, include items like recall cards, brochures and posters to help you educate optical patients about the need to receive regular eye exams and how to choose the right eyewear for good vision and overall health. We also offer product-generic consumer supplements and brochures about many topics.
• Free Industry Reports: The Vision Council regularly publishes reports on various eye care and eyewear-related issues. Recent topics include children’s vision care, the cost of vision problems on businesses and the state of vision care coverage.
• Free Doctor Locator: When consumers visit The Vision Council website to learn about eye health, they can connect with doctors in their area and you can be one of those doctors! It is free to register for this program. Visit http://www.thevisioncouncil.org/doctorlocator and follow the instructions to sign up. During registration, you can provide contact information, languages spoken by staff members, practice specialties and a practice description.
