Advantages of an ADA badge
Upon completion of the entire event, and if your practice has retinal imaging equipment, your practice will attain the ADA Badge*. This badge is displayed on your practice’s VSP® Find a Doctor Directory listing on vsp.com, which receives hundreds of thousands of visitors monthly.

In a recent As Eye See It blog, April Oliver, OD, shares how having the ADA Badge provided a powerful way for her practice to stand out from the competition. She attracted new patients who traveled 45 minutes to visit her practice for their eye exams because of her practice’s commitment to connecting vision to the overall health of their patients at risk for or living with diabetes.

Attaining the ADA Badge also entitles you to receive a complimentary, one-year membership to the ADA, which includes access to professional journals, significant discounts on events and course materials, networking opportunities, and more.
