Market Your Services Through Community Involvement
Vision Care Venture
Published September 2010
One of the best ways to market your services as an eyecare professional is to participate in the community. That’s just what Robertson Optical Laboratories of Columbia and Greenville, SC, did recently by volunteering eyeglass fitting services at one of the largest health fairs in South Carolina.
Representatives of Robertson volunteered their services at the eyeglass fitting area of South Carolina Mission 2010, a health fair held in early August which consisted of a host of organizations providing healthcare, dental, and vision screenings to uninsured persons. More than 1,200 people registered and over 800 patient charts were scanned.
This was the first year vision screenings and eyeglass fittings were provided, which were coordinated by the South Carolina Optometric Physicians Association and Robertson Optical. Plans are now underway for the same event to be held next year.
