Don’t be afraid to answer your phone
When you co-manage a patient for a surgical procedure, be prepared for some common post-op doctor-patient dialogues.
Introducing premium care in the optometrist’s chair
When a patient is advised to undergo cataract surgery, the ORA System (WaveTec Vision) can acquire a more precise calculation to improve the patient’s acuity.
Toric IOLs enable comanagement opportunities
The toric intraocular lens (IOL) provides a greater range, enhanced efficacy, more precise visual recovery for the cataract patient, and reduced potential of complications in a single surgery. Also, toric lenses provide the opportunity for optometrists to co-manage the patient’s recovery.
Optometry: The invisible profession
The perception of an optometrist by the general public seems to be that of a provider of ophthalmic-related products and services, an occupation that is as accessible as any other retailer. We are, in fact, eye physicians and have earned the right to call ourselves doctors and treat our patients with all the skills that we have at our disposal.
