Ep. 008 Contact Lens and Types of Telehealth Care

Amy Jacobs – Director of Contact Lens Program at Cool Springs Eye Care and Donelson Eye Care

Contact Lens Care – COVID particularly has an effect on contact lens care – because

contact lens users touch their face and eyes often – patients cannot be seen for contact

lens appointments b/c practices are only being seen for urgencies

The practice is extending contact prescriptions 6 months and shipping for home delivery

at no charge

Can COVID be transmitted via the tears? – Can contacts be worn normally? – All

concerns for patients wearing contact lenses

Contacts safer for children playing sports

GVSS – type of contact that is a hard lens you sleep in and helps to reshape the cornea

– it can help slow down the progression of some vision issues – it is different than a daily

lens, typically used for longer periods of time


Drs. Jeff and Susan Kegarise grew their practices in Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee,

over the last 25+ years. They also co-authored a book One Patient At A Time , which

you can order today. Drs Jeff and Susan take the reader through 8 chapters and 135

lessons that they have learned, created processes for and institute in their practices

every single day.

A Better Way For Doctors & Patients Are you a doctor who wants to give patients the

best care, yet struggle with the demands of managing the clinic and the business? Or

are you a patient who’s tired of poor service, impolite greetings, and providers in a

rush? Doctors Jeff and Susan Kegarise are here to give you hope. There is a better

way―for both patients and doctors. In One Patient At A Time, they open the doors to

their Nashville practice to let patients see how leadership, systems, staff, and doctors

combine to deliver patient-focused, relationship-driven care. And they show doctors how

to provide this kind of care by giving specific, implementable steps that drive a culture of

service to patients―one that patients clearly see as unique, enjoyable, and a better

experience than the typical doctor visit. Read this book and you will never look at your

healthcare experience or your practice the same. And you will be better for it.
