We support optometrists, facilitating the process at every stage of their entrepreneurial journey, whether that means opening a new clinic, developing a partnership with an existing clinic, or planning the sale of an optometry practice.

Our goal is to democratize access to information about entrepreneurship in the optical industry.

" Jas has been able to make my transition to practice ownership as seamless as possible by providing me with the resources I need to run and grow my practice. Jas has an infectious enthusiasm for independent optometry, so when she recommended the OSI Leadership and Management Training course, I knew I had to take the time out of my busy schedule to complete it. This gave me the chance to work directly with Jas over the past few months and learn from her experience in, and knowledge of, the industry. Since I am a solo practitioner and relatively new practice owner, I feel very lucky to have Jas as my Practice Advisor to help me navigate the constant and ever-changing challenges of practice ownership."

"My patients often choose to purchase a second pair thanks to the quality of the lenses and the favourable rates offered for multi-pairs that were negotiated with the Maestro private label."
