BUSINESS: The Independent Eye: Inspirations New Year, New Glasses By Staff Thursday, January 6, 2022 7:50 AM NEW YORK—The new year has arrived, and along with it come resolutions, excitement and changes. While some are leaning into a “new year, new me” mentality, January can be a great time to get in touch with patients about how their eyecare fits in to their new year plans. Here, we’re taking a look at how ECPs, indie designers and more are looking at the new year through new lenses. Feel free to get inspired for your own year, or your own social media page.
