Optovue's Wellness Solutions give you one, easy-to-read report that displays retinal thickness and GCC thickness with normative comparisons. These metrics along with a high-resolution B-scan and symmetry analysis help you to identify the signs of retinal and nerve fiber disease. And all of this information is available to you before you even see the patient!
Wellness scanning is designed to reveal changes in retinal anatomy that may warrant further examination. These patients often need additional medical scans to assess their ocular health, and your practice can provide these with your Optovue OCT system.
OCT Wellness Exams demonstrate your practice's commitment to eye health, which adds value to your patients' eye exams and sets you apart from other eye care professionals in your area. In addition, patients appreciate your concern for the health of their eyes and are compelled to return to your practice for their yearly eye exam.
Wellness scanning is considered separate from medically-billable OCT scans, so patients typically pay out-of-pocket. Optovue offers training for your staff on how to present the exam to patients and also provides a practice marketing kit to help you make the most of this state-of-the-art technology.
"Patients really like being able to see that everything is within normal, or if there is a problem, being able to actually see it and be involved in their own care." Amy Peterson, OD
