Do you have unique services or equipment you wish ophthalmologists knew about? Do you cater to wheelchair users or make home visits for those who are unable to reach you? Do you have experience fitting contact lenses or eyeglasses on infants?
We often receive calls from ophthalmologists asking where to send their patients to meet specific needs. Some are looking for opticians who carry low vision aids, or stock a range of pediatric frames, or fit specialty contact lenses, among other things. We know you’re out there, but we don’t always know where to refer.
With that in mind, we have developed a referral questionnaire so that we can put together a comprehensive list for ophthalmologists. We hope that with a list of dispensaries that serve specialty populations, patients can more easily find someone in their area to help them.
