Information for Referring Physicians
Please use the FAX Referral Form designed to assist you with referring patient to The Ensight Skills Center for low vision care.
Why should you refer your low vision patients to Ensight Skills Center for Low Vision? As a not-for-profit organization staffed with leading professionals in the field of low vision care, Ensight Skills Center represents an opportunity for you to assure your patients the most comprehensive possible care to maximize their vision at a cost within their means. Funding from grants, foundations, and private donations enables us to work with your patient to find an affordable way to provide the evaluation and prescription of devices that will help them restore a measure of independence to their lives.
Making a referral may help in many ways:
- Vision – your patient may see more than he or she thought they could see
- Outlook – your patient’s outlook regarding the treatment of their condition may improve, making them easier to work with under your care for their eye disease
- Relationship – your bond with the patient may grow stronger from demonstrating that you understand how the disease you are trying to manage impacts them in pyscho-social ways outside your area of expertise
- References – your patient’s enthusiasm about the breadth of care you offer when their condition is co-managed with Ensight and will spread among their circle of associations leading more people suffering eye diseases and low vision to seek professional help
The National Eye Institute (NEI), American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), and American Optometric Association (AOA) include low vision rehabilitation as a treatment modality in the continuum of care for people when permanent vision loss occurs and encourage such referrals. We will work with you to monitor your patient’s progress and inform you of your patient’s outcomes. Together we can help fulfill the vision of the NEI and AOA for improving the care and quality of life of those who suffer from serious eye conditions and low vision.
