Course Topics

The courses I have created with specific intent. Intent to create a realistic process that when implemented will create the best patient experience, increase profit and be repeatable over and over.  


While each topic is just that, when used together the common thread of connecting the DOTS will become apparent.


I know you will have fun reviewing the topics and even more fun when we are able to work together.

50 Shades of Frames

Frames Boards

Pun intended! This course will not about how many frames you need or turnover. It will be an aesthetic walk through frame board selection so you can keep all patients interested.


Many frames boards are repetitive and, quite frankly, boring. In many cases, the dollars spent on frames are just behind equipment and staff salaries. Attendees will glean ways to be able to say "I can sell that frame" and in turn patients will say "I will wear that frame."

Lenses First

You Had Me at 'Hello'

The expectation is that you, the expert, will be more equipped to make the lens choice for your patient the # One priority. This will ALLOW you to spend more time on the complete Perfect Visual Solution (PWS) for each patient.

You are the expert, be the expert and choose exactly what you would wear, your patient deserves it. We look at the two main facets of lens selection with information that you have at your fingertips and keyboard.

The Perfect Visual Solution

A.K.A. the "PVS"

The PVS is what every patient deserves to know.

"Bespoke" is a term that we use to describe customized, or made for a particular person. we get to do this every day with every patient we help. It is never just one pair that will enrich their life to the fullest. It may be two or ten and don't forget about contact lenses! Learn how to uncover, design and present the PWS for every patient. They may not purchase the entire PVS, but knowing what is perfect for them by a professional is what they deserve.

Sell It Like It's Free

If you could sell free eyewear, what would you sell? The best I would guess. What we will explore and create is a step by step strategy to make sure you don't fall into "what my insurance covers" syndrome.

The First Pair is Already Sold

What will be gained in this interactive learning session is how to create the PVS for every patient, "their" Perfect Visual Solution. We will explore the perception and the reality of how consumers purchase up.

Every patient needs multiple pairs regardless of their lifestyle. by editing the manner in which you approach each PVS will determine the outcome. YOU! are the expert and know what the patient needs and will make their life better.
