Expanding role for optometry beyond primary health care

September 2, 2014

This blog will depart from my main theme of the primary health care role for optometry in health care reform. This week, I had the unique opportunity to see two patients, back to back, in our neurorehabilitation clinic who were seeking optometric care to manage their intraocular devices.

The first patient had an implantable miniature telescope (IMT) to manage age-related macular degeneration, and the second had an Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System (Second Sight Medical Products) for blindness from retinitis pigmentosa.
