Mick Kling

Practice Management and Transition Advisor for Vision Source.

I consider myself to be a deeply caring industry​ ​consultant,​ ​speaker,​ and business coach​.​ ​My consultancy is called ​Impact​ ​Leadership through which​ ​I provide leadership, culture and business consulting ​for​ ​the​ ​eye​ ​care​ ​community. I was founder of Invision Optometry,​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​largest,​ ​single​ ​location​ ​optometric​ ​practices​ ​in​ ​San​ ​Diego,​ ​California, voted​ ​“America’s Finest Optical Retailer” in 2017. I also serve as the Practice Management and Transition Advisor for Vision Source.

I gained​ ​significant​ ​business​ ​experience having​ purchased ​multiple​ ​practices​ ​over​ ​the​ ​last​ ​30 years. I’m proud of my​ ​reputation​ ​for​ ​providing​ ​conscientious​ ​and​ ​impactful​ ​advice,​ ​an engaging​ ​speaking​ ​style,​ ​and​ ​creating innovative​ ​solutions​ ​for​ ​the​ ​most​ ​critical​ ​challenges facing​ ​practice​ ​owners​ ​today.

One of my key areas of expertise is eye care business finances, which I have lectured on extensively. While I don’t have a finance degree, I do feel I have a knack for understanding the finances of optometry practices and communicating ways to improve to other doctors. I look forward to continuing to share my experiences with others by providing much needed business acumen to fellow optometric business owners.

I am ​originally​ ​from​ ​Indiana,​ ​raised​ ​in​ ​Arkansas,​ ​and​ ​have​ ​resided​ ​in​ ​San​ ​Diego​ ​for​ ​over 30 years.​ ​When​ ​not​ ​working,​ ​I​ ​spend ​time​ ​with​ ​his​ ​wife​ ​Jennifer,​ ​and​ ​two​ ​sons,​ ​Robert​ ​and Ryan.​ ​I also ​fulfill​ ​my ​passion​ ​of​ ​playing​ ​guitar​ ​in​ ​my​ ​rock​ ​band, Backstage​ ​Pass,​ ​which​ ​can​ ​frequently​ ​be​ ​seen​ ​gigging​ ​in​ ​and​ ​around​ ​the​ ​San​ ​Diego​ ​area.

Things I support and maybe you will too
