Low Vision Program: In-Office Staff Training
What Kind of In-office Staff Training Does Eschenbach Offer?
Eschenbach’s In-office Staff Training is the second part of our Low Vision Program and is critical for a successful Low Vision Care service. The topics can be custom selected to suit the needs of your practice and can be offered whenever needed. The training is conducted in your office by your local Territory Manager and covers a variety of practice management as well as clinical topics including:
Low Vision Care Evaluation Protocol Review
If you need assistance in creating a protocol to follow during low vision evaluations, your local Territory Manager can review one that Eschenbach created, entitled “The Seven Steps to Dispensing Low Vision Aids
”. The steps covered in this protocol can help make your low vision evaluations run smoothly and efficiently, minimizing your time and successful patient outcomes.
Included with this protocol is a review of Eschenbach’s “Easy Selection Guide” which helps you quickly identify the optimal products from the Low Vision Program’s Diagnostic Dispensing system
that meet the needs and goals of your patients.
If needed, your local Territory Manager can even work side-by-side with you as you perform low vision patient evaluations to make sure you are comfortable with the process.
