The eyewear industry has undergone significant changes over the past year. From power mergers and acquisitions to opening the doors to industry partnership.
Until recently, a collaborative approach in Ontario was not part of industry practice. On April 15 this all changed with new regulations that allow Optometrists, Opticians and Ophthalmologists to work together under the same brand. This is a major step forward and one that will enhance the treatment of patients in Ontario. See what industry leaders have to say about this change in our Glimpses section.
Are you ready to rock ’n’ roll and rev your engines? This is the issue that will get you moving.
