Fun FlashCards For Eyecare Training


This is pretty cool- EyeTrain4You is now offering online interactive optican study flashcards. Over 700 of these cards are currently available with Rebecca Johnson planning on introducing more in the future. You can test a live demo on the site. Even though I am not an optician, I got 2 right!! There are 40 categories available from basic to advanced, something for every staff and eye doc for that matter.

How It Works 

  1.  Select from over 40 categories you wish to study (basic and advanced).
  2. Deal the cards with the click of a button.
  3. Read the question and flip the card to see if your answer is correct.
  4. Got it? Put it in the Got It Deck. Need to study more? Put it in the Study Deck.
  5.  Grab the next card from your customized deck and repeat!

You can access the cards online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for just $9.99 per month. Once you have mastered all of the cards, or no longer need access to them, simply log in to your account and cancel your subscription.

As competition heats up, it is becoming increasingly more important that your staff is educated more than 1.) consumer and 2.) online retailers. This is unique and fun way to keep staff up to date and have a little fun.

How to use: 

  • Make it a game with staff: Set aside a certain amount per week, the one who answers the most correct questions, gets a paid day off, a free lunch..
  • Incorporate into staff meetings
  • New Staff: Make it part of the Training Manual
