Keys to Building a Pediatric Practice

Aleksandra Wianecka, OD, describes her success factors in growing a practice to be 40 percent pediatric: See the entire family, participate in InfantSee and conduct screenings at schools. Discussing good nutrition is part of her holisitic health message to parents and children. This formula yields life-changing events, like spotting extreme hyperopia in a child regarded as “developmentally delayed.”

ACTION POINTS

Stress early exams: Tell pregnant women and young parents their kids should be seen from six months on.
Discuss nutrition: Emphasize the importance of green leafy vegetables on healthy eyesight.
Offer InfantSee: Early detection of vision issues impacts young lives greatly and positively.
