In this brief ODwire.org TV Interview, Mark Andre, FAAO, Associate Professor of Optometry at Pacific University College of Optometry tells us all about the NEW CooperVision MyDay Toric, and using the new lens to build your 1-day practice.

We touch on:
  • Statistics on toric fits, dropouts and where the market is moving
  • The design of the lens vs Biofinity
  • The nature of the material and its low modulus
  • Using LensFerry to help build your 1-day Practice


If you have any questions about MyDay Toric or LensFerry, please post them in this thread.

Thanks to CooperVision for their long-standing support of the site!

Uprise Essentials & Pro – Plus Free Special for ODwire.org Members


I spoke with Denise Crown from VisionWeb @ VEE to catch the latest with them (listen to the 5 minute interview above.)

Uprise has now split out their platform into two separate packages at different pricepoints -- "Essentials" and "Pro".

So for a new practitioner who doesn't necessarily need the kitchen sink, but does want an EHR, Essentials is an inexpensive way to go. You can then seamlessly "upgrade" to Pro when ready.

*** They are extending the show special: You can get Uprise Essentials for FREE for your first doc if you sign up for VisionWeb's Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) package (which does claim submissions, etc.)

Just contact them to take advantage of this or ask questions in this thread.

How ODwire.org Keeps Your Privacy Safe

ODwire Servers
ODwire.org founder (left), in 2004. Back when we did everything by hand.  Everything!

In the wake of the latest Facebook scandal (and the #deletefacebook movement), I'd like to provide some explanations of how we keep your data and privacy safe on ODwire.org.

Privacy has been a big deal to us since the site was founded 15+ years ago, it is part of our DNA, and it a major reason the site has been successful. (At the same time, it limits our growth, as "registering" isn't just as simple as clicking a button! C'est la vie.)

Unfortunately the rest of the world is only now catching on to just how bad the situation is on many other sites.

Read more to see how we address these issues on ODwire.org, and why it is important.
  • ODwire.org is the largest site online specifically designed for Eye Care Professionals.
