When should I refer my patients for eye care?
Obvious cases such as patients present with cataracts or an injury to the eye that you may not be properly equipped to manage, you already readily refer. But, consider referring:
- Your patients with uncontrolled hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes, and chronic inflammation. (conditions affecting vasculatures)
- Don’t forget those that you are managing with medications that adversely affect vision and those with ocular side effects.
- Consider the innocuous allergy sufferer and those on asthma medications like Albuterol, Symbicort, Cetirizine, and Loratadire, as these lead to chronic dry eyes which can be debilitating if left untreated; a bit more serious than management with an artificial tear.
What should I expect when I refer my patient to you?
- A notice from our practice confirming your patient’s appointment.
- A summary report of our examination findings via fax or secure email.
- Inclusion in our list of preferred providers.
- Eye care resources for you.
- Eye care resources for your staff.
- Invitations to physician-only events.
What can my patients expect when I refer them to you?
Ease of scheduling, quick appointments, a familial atmosphere, and a comprehensive, thorough examination with a clear explanation of our findings. We will also let them know that we will communicate everything with their referring physician, namely you. They’ll have access to all their records by their own patient portal.
