Sumary of Consumer survey results reinforce value of eye care services:
- Tu said every patient in his clinic gets a 60-second talk, whether they’re wearing contact lenses for 30 years or this is their first time.
- That’s why contact lenses and glasses are so important; they allow us to do what we have to do comfortably and clearly.
- We can say, ‘I understand your lenses may feel OK, and your vision may still be good, but you know you’re putting yourself at hazard by overwearing your lenses or topping off solution.’ If a patient is telling you they’re wearing their lenses longer and topping off solutions, it’s a bit late at that point, Ito said.
- In August, 251 contact lens wearers were asked to assign value to 26 different products and services in the categories of personal health, entertainment, clothing, dining and other discretionary spending options, according to a press release from the Contact Lens Institute (CLI).
