Over the past decade, optometry has seen major advances in both refractive and diagnostic technology.

Despite its ability to improve patient care, patient throughput, and the bottom-line, implementing this technology in an existing practice has proven challenging for many practitioners.

In this ODwire.org Webinar, Dr. Lorie Lippiatt will provide us with real-life examples of how clinicians successfully integrate these new instruments into their practices.

We discuss:
  • The benefits of the new technology, including efficiency and improvements in clinical care
  • The resistance to implementation, and why some docs haven't made the leap
  • Impact on staff and workflow
  • Numerous real-life cases, illustrating how the devices get used in different patient encounters.

Our thanks again to Marco for sponsoring this event.

Thanks again to Dr. Lippiatt, we've got the archive up and running now, hope everyone enjoys it. (and I hope to see everyone at AAO later in the week!)

I think the case on chalazion-induced corneal molding is interesting, but, in general, I don't see how the automated refraction-equipment has helped reach resolution in the cases shared.
