eBook (ePub)
(2 Ratings)
Price: $8.99
Most Optometrists don’t perform medical eye services, certainly not exclusively. You can develop a successful practice while providing a much needed service by bucking this trend. Jeffrey Sedgewick, O.D., M.D. spent 4 years as a practicing Optometrist prior to entering medical school. While practicing as an Optometrist and as an Ophthalmologist, he has seen many examples of poor medical care by Optometrists, as an Optometrist, himself included. He is convinced that it doesn’t have to be this way. He believes Optometrists who start their own Medical Optometry Practice can fill an increasingly important function, but they need more knowledge and clinical experience, which he seeks to provide in this textbook, in his web site, in future courses and as a consultant to your Medical Optometry Practice.

    This book is a must for any OD looking to focus on medical optometry, especially those who are building a medical optometry practice. It is written in a very straightforward manner which uses many relevant clinical examples as well as citing research studies and statistics to explain how various ocular pathologies are treated. Highly recommend!

    As a practicing optometrist I found this book to be on the leading edge of a potential path for the ambitious OD looking to expand their scope of practice. With the ever-evolving optical marketplace consumers are no longer limited to purchasing eyeware from their local eye doctor and therefore optometrists will need to considering exploring new options to replace that lost revenue. Building a medical optometry practice could help to fill that void. This book gives great insight into what knowledge is needed to begin that process and what to expect should one decide to take on this challenging yet rewarding endeavor. I would highly recommend this book to any optometrist interested in increasing their knowledge of ocular disease and utilizing it to expand towards a more medically based practice.
