• Why Benchmark?

    The Academy/AAOE AcadeMetrics™ benchmarking and salary tools are Web-based applications to help you measure financial performance and practice efficiency.

    Financial reports allow you to compare your practice’s performance from year to year, but how do you know if a good or bad year for you is good or bad for a practice like yours? Academy and AAOE members can now access two key benchmarking tools and garner valuable analytics that have helped ophthalmology practices increase revenue, justify new staff hires and much more.

    Members can take both surveys at no charge. The Academy and AAOE will report general findings, but only members who complete the survey will be able to access the more-valuable, detailed comparison reports that can help you pinpoint specific strengths and weaknesses in your practice. Practices enter data from the prior fiscal year, either in one or multiple settings. All information remains confidential.

  • Financial Benchmarking

    Focus: Financial Metrics

    • See how other similar practices’ optical shops perform, how much they pay their optometrists, the number of collections per doctor and much, much more.
    • Most of the numbers you’ll need to enter in the online tool should already exist in your practice’s regular financial statements.
    • Review the questions before you begin.
