Co-management between ophthalmologists and optometrists for patients has become an essential role to provide excellence in eye care.
Even optometrists co-manage their patients with other optometrists to gain access to advanced diagnostic tools or specialty services, such as low vision, hard-to-fit contact lens patients, dry eye disease, or sports vision training.
Growing demand for co-managing services has led to general practitioners as well to seek out assistance from competent and trustworthy practices. Ensuring that a patient receives a complete assessment of their eyesight as well as a positive experience from start to finish is essential. Co-management at Vision Support and Dry Eye Center guarantees:
- Comprehensive assessment, treatments, and reporting.
- Personalized, attentive care given to the practitioner and referred patient
- Access to numerous eye care services
- Establish greater confidence and trust between patient and their eye doctor and/or general practitioner
Our co-management program has supported many eye care professionals to help them provide amazing care to their patients. Whether a practitioner requests a dry eye assessment or complete treatment, we include a complete report of all findings so that you’re well aware of your patient’s health.
Our eye doctors & practice hope to not only create a positive experience for your patient, but we aim to build a lasting relationship with all of our co-managing optometrists and ophthalmologists.
This form is to be used for patient referrals.
