In fact, we believe a positive and supportive company culture is essential to creating a truly memorable experience for our patients and allows us to deliver our very best work. We hope you enjoy what inspires our team at Vance Thompson Vision.
The Patient Journey
2015 Parade of Lights
Our 2015 Spring Symposium was a continuing education opportunity for over 300 area optometrists and their staff, and we opened the event with this video – because a strong work family contributes significantly to how people experience our clinic.
The Best Day of Your Life
Janet C., Vance Thompson Vision’s Coding and Counseling Director, says that the lip dub video to the song “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors, “captures how well we work together as a team. Not only do we work well together, but we also have a lot of fun together. We had no idea what other departments were doing until we were done and the video was shown during our team meeting. It was amazing to see how well it turned out and how everyone performed. It was a great experience and once again made me proud of our Vance Thompson Vision team. I hope we can do another one!”
Simon Sinek: How Great Leaders Inspire Action
Simon Sinek's TEDx Talk addressing "How Great Leaders Inspire Action" suggests the powerful leadership model of starting with one simple question and word: Why. In the talk, Sinek suggests that one of the most powerful ways to bring people together is to celebrate why. What Sinek says applies to ventures both personal and professional, and our team has become closer from the experince of creating our own "why" statements.
Google Search: Reunion
When Google created this communication to talk about how special their service is, it's easy to think there was a room full of people who thought their service was about an Internet search company. However, at a closer look, nobody's interested in Internet searches, people are interested in developing their personal relationships and reuniting with their friends. This is not so different than the offerings here at Vance Thompson Vision. Nobody wakes up in the morning wanting eye surgery. Instead, they want to simply see better. They want to see their children. They want to see their golf ball land. They want to see their next birthday or the birthdays of their grandkids. It's helpful when we get out of the way of our own message and let the customer have what they really want; which, for our customers, is sight.
Dove: Real Beauty Sketches
We’re all searching for beauty within ourselves and, often times, find it hard to see. However, what people don’t often realize is that the beauty was always there. At Vance Thompson Vision, we’re so happy Dove put this message out into the world and we strive to show people this same thing by creating clear vision. By having the most advanced technology in vision correction surgery, we’re able to help men and women see, giving them a clearer image of their beautiful self.
WWII Veteran and Toddler: Friends for Life
We all know how important our memories are to us. We want some experiences and moments to last forever and others to have ended before they even started. Here at Vance Thompson Vision, we cherish all of these memories along side you and strive to help you be a part of every single moment. Whether it's finding the love of your life, winning that big race, or seeing your 3-year-old son befriend an 89-year-old neighbor, we love helping you see it all!
What Is Love?
We all want to not only be there for our loved ones, but make sure they’re getting the absolute best we can give. At Vance Thompson Vision, we share that same passion with the care of our patients. We strive to always have the most advanced technology available so each and every one of our patients are fully and safely taken care of. Our main goal is to make sure we deliver on your trust in us to provide the best advice and care we can possibly give. What is Love to us? It’s our patients living life with a big smile on their faces and glasses off their noses.
At Vance Thompson Vision, we value family, so much so that we consider our whole team one big family. We also understand and appreciate the importance of a good family relationship. We see treating each member of 'the family' like a good friend creates a better, more efficient, and more fun working environment allowing us to give our patients the best experience they could possibly have while getting their new vision. Which is why we found inspiration in this Robinsons Orange juice commercial reminding dads it's ok to be a dad and a pal to your children. So, whether it's daughter to mother, father to son, or team member to team member, remember that family and friendship goes hand-in-hand.
Sometimes It Takes More Than Medication
Although medical practices are very important when it comes to healing and helping so many people, it's not the only thing. Pfizer shows us this fact in this video, inspiring people to go the extra mile for people, especially when they need it. This is something we at Vance Thompson Vision strive to accomplish in the care of our patients. If there's a way to make one of our patients day and time here even better, we'll do it to the best of our ability!
Disconnect to Connect
The team at Vance Thompson Vision understands that nobody wants to get eye surgery, but instead, what people want is to connect. We appreciate this commercial for giving us a really good representation of the world today, constantly focused on something other than each other. We want to help you disconnect as well; no, not from technology, but from your glasses and contacts. With this disconnection, we hope it inspires you to start connecting more and more.
