Where Did the Year Go?

Happy holidays from Eyefinity! As 2018 comes to end, and many reflect, we’d like to share that Eyefinity has had a huge year, all thanks to YOU!

With continued efforts to ensure regulatory compliance, ongoing improvements to our products and services, and the implementation of new features we offer, we have been busy. And that’s a great thing! As patients flood your offices to end the year, we’re sure you can relate.

So, what’s kept us so busy? Well, this year we had record breaking attendance at the Eyefinity Education Conferences. We’ve really enjoyed watching our users experience memorable “Aha!” moments, while building professional connections with their peers. We also implemented automated ERA processing, further streamlining practice workflows. Oh, and we won a few more EyeVote Readers’ Choice Awards, too. Thank you for that.

We are looking forward to 2019 and are excited to further enhance our cloud platform with integrated image management, innovative patient engagement services, and much more!

We’re grateful for the opportunity to serve you, and wish you a joyful holiday season and a prosperous new year.

Friendships Formed at Eyefinity Education Conferences

Not only are Eyefinity Education Conferences opportunities to dive deep into Eyefinity software, they foster professional connections that could last a lifetime.

In June, more than 100 doctors and staff members joined Eyefinity at its second education conference of the year in San Antonio, Texas. And while Justine O’Dell, OD, from Spartanburg Vision, in South Carolina expected attendees to be excited for the conference and its content, she was pleasantly surprised by “the camaraderie that comes from such a personal, fun, and intensive training.”

“It was a great opportunity to brainstorm and network with ODs from across the country,” said Dr. O’Dell.

These conferences foster connections between attendees, as well as establish meaningful relationships between Eyefinity educators and doctors and staff.
