For doctors to refer patients: Please use the FAX Referral Form to assist you with referring patients to the Ensight Skills Center for low-vision care.
When you as a doctor refer your low-vision patients to Ensight Skills Center, they receive services from professionals specializing in low-vision care, an opportunity that assures your patients experience the most comprehensive care and ability to maximize their vision. Funding from grants, foundations, and private donations enables us to provide patients affordable evaluation and prescription of devices which can restore a measure of independence.
Referring Patients to Ensight Helps in Many Ways:
- Vision: Your patient may see more than he or she thought they could.
- Outlook: Your patient’s outlook regarding treatment and adjustment to their condition may improve.
- Relationship: The bond between you and your patient may grow stronger after demonstration of your concern about the psychosocial impacts of disease and daily wellbeing.
- References: When their eye condition is co-managed with Ensight, your patient’s enthusiasm about the care you offer them will spread among their circle of associations, which often leads to more people who suffer from eye diseases and low vision to seek professional help.
Doctors Refer to Ensight and Participate in Continuum of Care
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. Ensight will work with you to monitor your patient’s progress and inform you of your patient’s results. Together, we can help fulfill the missions of NEI and AOA by improving the care and quality of life of those who suffer from serious eye conditions and low vision.
