San Diego, California – November 29, 2022 – CovalentCreative today announced the acquisition of 20/20 Glance from its founder and owner, Jackie Garlich, OD, FAAO. 20/20 Glance is a weekly short-form curation of the most timely news impacting optometry today. With the addition of Glance, Eyes On Eyecare® will increase the strength of its offerings, which include continuing education, long-form content, and—with Glance—industry news about the latest innovations and developments in optometry and ophthalmology.
“Jackie and I have been friends for almost 10 years, and I’ve always admired what she has accomplished with 20/20 Glance,” said Matt Geller, OD, co-founder and CEO of CovalentCreative, the parent company of Eyes On Eyecare. “As a millennial optometrist myself, I understand the importance and value of short-form optometry and ophthalmology news in order to keep pace with the latest developments. Our 80,000 monthly readers are equally busy, and we look forward to bringing Jackie’s vision of bite-sized, impactful information to them in 2023.”
“I created 20/20 Glance as a way to educate our colleagues on breaking news and research so, ultimately, we can better treat our patients with the latest innovations,” said Dr. Garlich. “I’m thrilled to join the Eyes On Eyecare team that shares the same vision, and I’m looking forward to continually expanding and deepening the quality of content we deliver.”
Eyes On Eyecare has been organically delivering innovative content to the up-and-coming generation of eyecare physicians since 2009. As a result, Eyes On Eyecare is the leading industry resource for young optometrists and ophthalmologists, boasting one of the largest and most engaged audiences of doctors in eyecare.
20/20 Glance is currently curated by Dr. Garlich, who founded the publication in 2016. As a practicing optometrist and industry consultant serving on numerous advisory boards, Dr. Garlich will remain at the helm as President of Glance and will continue to curate relevant eyecare news for today’s busy clinicians. Dr. Garlich’s quick recaps of crucial industry updates and releases, as well as her humor and excellent writing, have contributed to her large audience of followers and subscribers.
Eyes On Eyecare has grown its publication team to support this new initiative. Dr. Garlich will be joined by Editor-in-Chief Eleanor Gold, PhD and News Editor Alex Delaney-Gesing. Previously an editor at Optometry Times and Ophthalmology Times, Delaney-Gesing brings several years of eyecare journalism experience to the Eyes On Eyecare team.
“It’s impossible to deliver excellent care in a vacuum,” said Delaney-Gesing. “Glance will provide today’s eyecare professionals with the latest insights about new therapeutics, clinical trials, and novel solutions that will evolve their practices and the care they are able to deliver to patients.”
Glance by Eyes On Eyecare officially launches on January 1, 2023. The website will feature daily updates of at-a-glance news along with a weekly newsletter. For media inquiries or to sign up for the new Glance newsletter, visit glance.eyesoneyecare.com
