More than Just a Program.

A Movement.

We know how hard you work every day to deliver the best patient care while growing a thriving practice. That’s what Best Practices is all about.

It’s the only movement that recognizes and celebrates what eye care practices like yours do best - and how they can inspire excellence across our entire profession.

Submitting Your Practice

The potential of being considered a Best Practice begins with the 3-step application. Practices first register then tell us a little about themselves. The last step is to answer a few short questions on how their practice is advancing the eye care industry. Whether it’s innovative approaches and methodologies, superior patient experiences, or inspiring change in the community, we want to hear everything done to make the practice successful.

Being Selected

Practice applications will be reviewed by a selection committee made up of your professional peers, industry experts, and representatives from Best Practices curator, CooperVision. 2017 Best Practices will be selected by the following members:
