Visique is a cooperative of optometrists and dispensing opticians who are health care professionals with a service based philosophy which puts the highest priority on patient needs while recognising the importance of providing an excellent customer experience. Our focus is our patients.
We exist to help you compete and succeed in a challenging market place while practising your profession without restrictions. It's about you doing what you do best, PLUS having the benefit of commercial assistance.
As a branded or unbranded practice, we offer flexible and optional buying power, business support services including inventory management and marketing, peer-to-peer information sharing and a clinical focus...without compromising your independence.
Joining Visique is about being in practice for yourself, not by yourself. We have a low cost membership available, so if you'd like some commercial support for your clinical independence, read on below.
