LAS VEGAS, Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Two leading Las Vegas optometrists have created The Progressive Eyecare Network. Drs. H. Kenneth Kopolow and Steve Girisgen formed The Progressive Eyecare Network to explore and develop state of the art eye care delivery methods to better address the demands of patients for affordable, high-quality eye care and to help stem the rising cost of that care for employers.
"It is clear that government participation in the system has increased and there is more pressure to scale back on eye care services while at the same time increasing costs to the patient and the employer," Dr. H. Kenneth Kopolow, Network Co-Founder said. "The mission of the Progressive Eyecare Network is to increase patient access to high quality care, provide more choices of eye care professionals and eliminate unnecessary costs to patients and employers."
Another trend affecting the delivery of eye care is the expansion of eye care services into big box retailers like Costco and Wal-Mart. Never before in history have patients had more options where eye care is concerned than they do today. However, this expansion has created significant confusion for both the eye care patient and also for their employers who in most cases pay for the bulk of the care. Because the doctors are local and practice in the community - they own and manage the largest optometry practice in Southern Nevada - they are in a unique position to help create a system where the patient is receiving a high level of care at a reasonable cost.
"Eye care sits at the crossroads between health care and retail. There's nothing else like it in the entire health care industry. The creation of The Progressive Eyecare Network will assure accountability and high quality, low cost services for Las Vegas residents," Dr. Girisgen said.
