The World of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses is a major part of a successful independent optical practice, therefore everyone in the business needs to be knowledgeable and confident in talking to patients about the benefits and options available. Over the course of the four sessions we will cover the information required to enable anyone in the practice to be able to successfully handle customer enquiries for contact lens information. Leading to better conversations and recommendations, as well as support staff being better able to handle the common questions that potential wears might have.

We gain so much more than the many benefits of membership – fellowship and friendships we’ve made, training we’ve had, additional free resources and the annual conference which we thoroughly enjoyed. All included in the support package from the team of experts at SightCare and through fellow members (and now friends) that we have met.

We found the help given by SightCare outstanding. Their dedication is second to none and their artistic abilities in producing professional videos, social media content and their support to practises is highly impressive. During Covid they’ve been exceptional in the support of the Independent sector.

I have been in optics a long time now and feel we can run a successful practice, but being “independent” has its drawbacks in not speaking to like- minded professionals enough. The support we have had individually, and as our small collective group has been invaluable. Support of course much needed through lockdowns-but now we progress more and more into improving our businesses to the best we can be. We feel lucky to have had both David and Gavin who inspire us every time - and the whole community of SightCare has felt like ‘family in a time where it has been needed.
