You have convinced your patient with visual complaints to go to the eye doctor. But what do the results mean? How do these new findings affect your treatment plan? This course will help the therapist understand the process and the results of their patient’s eye exam and how those results will affect their treatment plan. The course will explain the most common vision diagnosis so the therapist can adjust treatment to get maximum results.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Locate information vital to performance in a typical eye exam.
  • Define the common refractive states and recognize the lenses used to correct these states.
  • Recognize the components of the binocular vision exam in an eye exam.
  • Identify the most common vision diagnoses and how they affect your treatment plan.
