In today’s eye care landscape, the optometry sector is undergoing a dynamic shift toward independent practice. This movement is driven by a desire for greater professional autonomy, personalized patient care, and the freedom to innovate beyond corporate constraints. This shift is evident in the rise of boutique optometry practices offering tailored services and the growing presence of rural optometrists delivering crucial care in underserved areas. Amid this transformation, the OSI Group has launched Vision Entrepreneur, a trailblazing program designed to empower optometrists to build and sustain their own practices. This initiative offers a multifaceted approach to professional development, blending hands-on experience, personalized guidance, and a robust support network.

One of the standout features of the Vision Entrepreneur program is its extensive internship placement service. With connections to over 850 independent clinics, the program offers budding optometrists invaluable onsite experience. These internships provide an immersive look into the daily operations of thriving independent practices, delivering insights that textbooks simply can’t offer.

Moreover, Vision Entrepreneur goes beyond the standard approach, matching you with practices and communities that align with your career goals— whether you’re drawn to the buzz of urban clinics or the unique opportunities in rural settings. By working alongside experienced practitioners, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of patient care, clinic management, and the business intricacies that come with running a practice.
