We often use the word ‘vision’ when we’re talking to business owners. As opticians, you’ll realize more than anyone how critical vision is to life – and how important your business vision is to your business life. We’ve worked with optometrists to opthalmologists, a variety of opticians and those in the optometry industry, through all the stages from startup through to business sale.
Helping you have clarity in your optometry business is important to us, too. We can help you with basic accounting, tax and business coaching services – and we can go beyond, helping you identify key profit improvement strategies, and addressing your personal wealth, and identifying tax minimization strategies.
Specific Challenges in the Optometry Industry
If you own an optometry practice, you’ll be facing a variety of issues related to operations and finances. With looming changes in the healthcare environment, optometrists in private practice must stay aware of the current trends and their effect.
Are you like many?
You struggle with understanding what the numbers mean, and how you should respond.
You want to provide the best care in a fee competitive environment - but how?
Is your new practice debt overwhelming? Struggling with how to pay it off quickly?
You care deeply for your patients, seeking the best for them.
You want someone who will speak with you often, and on your level, not technical jargon.
Does it sometimes feel like the team is tearing apart?
If you have a profit, you worry that taxes will eat it all up.
Often, profits are minimal. Are you able to draw market-rate compensation for yourself.
You hate surprises, particularly cash flow surprises.
We commonly hear you feel disconnected from you business, like you are losing touch. You feel alone and maybe a bit helpless.
And all this may be affecting the most important relationships in your life.
Truthfully, it is not your fault - you were not taught how to run an optometry practice.
It should not be so hard.
You just need a better way, a step by step blueprint, and someone to walk with you.
