59% of patients look for optometrists online after regular Monday-Friday, 9-5 office hours. Only 41% of patients search during regular office hours for an eye doctor and eye exams.
Life is busy. Working moms looking for family eye care are online early mornings and evenings. Interestingly, the two busiest times are early morning before work (6-8a) and late evenings after primetime television and the family is in bed (10-11p CDT). Moms paying bills, taking care of family business, and looking for vision care.
Thursday is the busiest day of the week both during office hours and after. Saturday and Sunday are busier than any weekday during regular office hours.

Nationally, 40-million eye exams expire un-used every year while 90-million adults skip annual vision care. Why? It is complicated to find a better optometrist, negotiate an appointment, book-an-exam, and expensive if your employer does not provide vision insurance. Patients will fill your schedule if you make it easier for them.
