COVID-19 Resources for ECPs

Think About Your Eyes has worked with our partners and industry supporters to compile useful resources for ECPs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Below is a list of websites and files, many designed for industry professionals, that provide guidance on industry trends, procedures and more during the current pandemic.

Featured Resource - Reopen Eyecare

Reopen Eyecare, a new website and platform designed to help eyecare providers navigate the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on their businesses, launched on May 20th. Featuring content specially curated by a task force of vision community leaders and sponsored by The Vision Council, the website is intended to serve as a comprehensive resource to help eyecare providers navigate the complex journey from shutdown back to “new normal” business conditions with practical insights and a collection of best practices, protocols, tools and tips for reopening a practice and maintaining its health until conditions improve.
