Latest Announcement/Upcoming Events

I am personally excited to announce this partnership since ocular disease has always been a passion of mine. While optometrists need to be financially-educated,  they also need to be clinically-knowledgeable to be efficient in providing the best patient care.  Hence why I created a year ago. It was a great but very basic website filled with clinical tools from ocular disease to CL parameters that over 4,000+ doctors use on a daily basis.

But there was always something missing, and that something was EyeDock, a well-known online clinical tool that was created in 2002 by full-stack developer extraordinaire, Dr. Todd Zarwell O.D. So with the merging of our two companies, Todd & Dat can have the necessary resources & man-power to take EyeDock to a higher level, to really make every single doctor exceptional clinicians. So is our gift to our optometry profession: 

  • ✅ Fully Mobile UI/UX design, comprehensive database, updated daily
  • ✅ Register for EyeDock FREE to get access to basic contact lens, medicine, ocular diagram, references & basic vertex calculator
  • ✅ Upgrade to EyeDock PRO $15/month to get full access to comprehensive ocular disease/treatment, ICD-10, advanced calculators/tools and new features.
  • ✅ No Long-term Contract, Cancel Anytime, Free Account Setup. 

ODs on Finance Member PROMO: 

  • Free 4-Years EyeDock PRO for optometry students during school
  • Free 1-Month EyeDock PRO for practicing doctors

Todd and myself sincerely plan to invest more future resources back into EyeDock to make the best optometric clinical tool in the world! So please give us feedback as you navigate the site!

7 Reason why Indexed Universal/Whole Life Insurance Suck

During the lifetime of ODs on Finance, we have received quite a few messages from doctors, family and friends about Indexed Universal Life Insurance (IULs).  IULs are promoted to mimic the Index SP 500 return.
