By the time you are done reading this encouraging note, you will be just about ready to tap the button on your smart mobile, taking a short break away from your rooms, or still seated at your desk, making up your journal notes on how successfully you handled your book of business for the day. Perhaps you also made mention of how challenging it was for your assistants to complete another round of standard eye tests.
They were prepping your patients for a more formal and detailed diagnosis. It has been challenging for you too. These old machines are not exactly about to give up the ghost but they are creaking under the pressure of a growing book of business. The book of business needs to grow in order to allow your operation to stay afloat. As a small business operator or franchise owner, you need more clients.
Kudos to you for getting this much right in your business but it is still a long way to go. Right about now, your business does not have the budget for the state of the art technologies that would really be a big help. But here is where things start to look up. Latest technologies can be acquired while utilizing used optometry equipment. The fact that they have been used does not make it soiled or damaged goods, not by a long shot.
In fact, a lot of work has gone into repairing old machines and instruments, where necessary, and recalibrating them for optimal use by practitioners like yourself. No machinery, instruments or devices will be released for sale until such time that they have been certified for full and proper use. You are using used equipment because it is friendly to your pocket at this time.
