For its leadership in optometry and delivery of exceptional care to its patients, J. Micetich, OD & Associates Family Eye Care Center in Coal City has been named a 2018 Best Practice by CooperVision, Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of soft contact lenses.
Now in its third year, the Best Practices initiative seeks to discover and recognize U.S. eye care practices that have found unique ways to drive growth in their businesses, and celebrate the visionary and innovative things they do every day for their patients and communities.
Family Eye Care Center is included among the 10 honorees chosen as this year’s class of Best Practices after a nationwide search that began in fall 2017. Honorees are profiled on the program’s web site at www.eyecarebestpractices.com.
Family Eye Care Center operates on the foundation that all patients deserve comprehensive, high-quality, honest eye care.
Micetich believes in the value of thoroughly incorporating technology into the exam process, noting that it makes a great educational tool for patients.
From the waiting area to the pre-testing rooms, from the exam rooms to the optical, the practice has invested in the most advanced technology to deliver the best possible patient experience. All new patients are offered a complimentary retinal wellness screening with the OCT and Optos Retinal Camera.
The practice also looks for ways to give back. For example, during the holidays, patients are encouraged to nominate those in need of eye care for the “Operation Christmas Sight” program, which results in free eye exams, glasses, and/or a year supply of contact lenses.
All U.S. optometry practices currently fitting contact lenses were eligible for consideration. Candidates were evaluated and honorees were selected by a panel of judges made up of past Best Practices honorees, optometry industry experts and CooperVision leaders.
Evaluation was based on insights and experiences shared about the practices’ innovation, patient experience and business culture.
