What if plastic was banned?


A world without plastic would be a very different place. It’s hard even to imagine what life would be like without this material. Plastic has become such an integral part of our lives that it’s difficult to think of living without it. What would you do if this ban was real?

You would first google for alternative options and find a way to do things differently. My gut says you would be looking for an alternative solution. You would need a better, more earth-friendly long-term solution.

A big change

Let's take a moment to think about something as simple as banning plastic and its significance. The optometry field is no different. It's an ever-changing environment in that we need to find new ways of doing things differently to stay up to date and be competitive. New materials would replace plastic in frames and packaging. Practices that adapt and find the best alternatives would receive the best results.

More and more practices are realising the benefits of implementing cutting-edge technology in their approach. From Electronic record cards, digital acuity software, and digital communication with patients done via artificial intelligence. Whilst relying on software programmes to do their daily tasks.

New ways of doing things

Introducing new software into your practice and training your staff to understand and use the software correctly may seem daunting. However, with the right software and team of experts assisting your practice, the implementation process will be seamless, and in no time, you will be reaping the rewards.
It’s as simple as integrating your database with a system that can communicate information to the patient about their diagnosis whilst automatically creating a recall at the right time. In the process, you are building relationships with your patients and growing online Google reviews.

Make a change in your business while you are ahead. All companies must make changes at some point, and the sooner, the better. Keeping your patients in your environment online when reading more about what you’re diagnosed with and eliminating them exposed to other brands is simply forward thinking.
