This is a remarkable business course that gives you a clear roadmap to starting or expanding a vision therapy practice.  The 12 hour course leads you step by step through the system we've taught for decades.  Learn the systematic way of operating that you'll find in the top VT practices everywhere.  Stop struggling to figure it all out by yourself.

Everything from costs to marketing, to how to conduct the key patient interactions that result in very high sign up rates.  It is everything about having a winning vision therapy practice they didn't teach you in optometry school. 

Every practice has a system in place for handling patient flow, but not all systems are created equal.  If there are things you don't like about how your practice runs, this course will provide what you need to fix them.  This course will eliminate years of frustration and expensive trial and error learning.  It is a must for any doctor starting a new practice, expanding vision therapy, or starting VT in a primary care setting.  As a client, Julie Ryan, O.D., FCOVD, Irvine CA said, "You don't have to do this alone."

Like all our courses, if you decide to do a full consultation, you get a credit on the balance for your full course tuition.

The Essentials course is delivered in 6 structured segments of various lengths.  There is ample of time for questions and discussion.  This is a business course , however it does address some clinical considerations.

 Segment 1:   The market for VT; escape managed care;  startup projections for VT; facility requirements; insurance issues; pricing strategies; profit margins; private pay only.  KEY DEMO:  Up Down Reader.

 Segment 2:  Communicating the VT Message;  explanation vs experience; power of observable signs; the communication protocol that works; inviting to take action;  preview of the practice flow map.  KEY DEMO:  Double Vision Demos.

 Segment 3:  Overview of how to organize the practice; the critical first contact; the system map of the step-by-step-by-step Lecoq system; VT with primary care/VT only (care tracks).  KEY DEMO:  Why saccades count.

And, every course is tailored to the needs of the doctor.  One size does NOT fit all.
