Low Vision – A Multidisciplinary Approach

Low Vision – A Multidisciplinary Approach

September 25, 2020, 8:15 AM - 9:15 AM

Sands Convention Center - TBD

Every member of the eye care team plays a critical role in the delivery of low vision care. This course will address how to successfully add or expand low vision services to your organization and will review the ways different members of your staff can help. Whether they are screening patients for low vision care at the front desk, doing exams or device training in the clinic or handling the billing or marketing in the back office, there's a role for everyone in offering low vision care. By using a multidisciplinary approach, not only is the workload spread among many people, but each person will be able to use their unique skillsets thereby ensuring a successful low vision care service!
