Optical Fun Events-Eye Caching


You may have heard of Geo-Caching, an international game of hide and seek. Basically what happens is an geocacher places a ‘geocache’ in a location, pinpoints it’s location via GPS and then publishes the geocache’s existence and location online. Anyone can go and try to find the geocache.

Wouldn’t an Geo Eye-Caching Promotion be a fun and engaging event for your patients and future patients? It would be simple and easy to do, place various objects such as sunglasses, eyecases, repair kits, gift certificates around town, pin-point the location via GPS and publicize your event.
