We're continuing to support our VSP doctors with resources for delivering safe eye care during COVID-19.

Happy Eyes, Happy Heart

Show your patients how eye health and heart health go hand-in-hand

February is American Heart Month, the perfect time to pump up heart and eye health awareness in your practice. Remind your patients that an eye exam can detect early signs of diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension, which can be contributing factors to heart disease. 

Go Red. Showcase stylish red frames in your in-office display to promote American Heart Month, decorate your practice, or choose a day of the week for your whole staff to wear red.  

Share heart-healthy tips. Use your social media channels to share a couple heart-healthy recipes and lifestyle tips each week during American Heart Month. For example, taking the stairs instead of the elevator or adding more omega-3s to your diet.   

Enroll in education.  Take the diabetes education series at Premier Academy360 to highlight your commitment to patient health by earning the American Diabetes Association badge and increase your practice visibility. Learn more here

Give away a virtual gym membership. Partner with a local gym that is hosting online classes and co-host a contest to win a free virtual gym membership pass for a month. Make sure your gym partner cross-promotes the contest on their social media page, which could drive new and potential patients to your practice. Learn more about hosting a contest here
