NEW YORK—ECPs across the country still have time to take part in the second wave of the Jobson Research Coronavirus ECP survey today. Respondents have until 8:00 p.m. EST tonight, Thursday, March 19, to complete the survey, which is posted here. Jobson is continuing to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and seeking the viewa of eyecare professionals about the coronavirus' impact on their practices and optical businesses. The survey asks ECPs to provide responses on a range of topics connected to the pandemic.

In addition to Jobson Research's own distribution, the survey is being made available through VMAIL, Review of Optometric Business, Women In Optometry, and Review of Myopia Management through this evening. The results will be shared on Friday. This second wave survey will enable comparisons between the first Coronavirus ECP Survey and includes several new questions about practice/office hours.

The first study covered the period of March 13 through the morning of March 16, reflected ECPs' concerns about the financial impact on their business, the steps they had taken to date in patient communications and other matters in the midst of a very fluid and fast-changing situation. VMAIL reported on the first study's highlights last Monday .

Eyecare professionals who participated in the first survey can take part in the second one. Those ECPs and optical retailers who missed the first opportunity to contribute their views are encouraged to take the new survey. There is no charge to take part. The complete results of the first study, and, soon, the current one, will be posted at no charge on the Jobson Research site here.
