This is Part III- the 'nuts and bolt' of caring for this population, the equipment and examination techniques necessary and, of course the billing for these services.  In Part 1 of the three part series we discussed the historical significance and importance of care for the nursing facility population, the demographic of this population and how Optometry can help.  In the 2nd part, we discussed the various aspects of ocular disease and conditions found in this population, the impact of these ocular conditions on this population in particular. And how to gain access to these patients.
