Description of Geriatric Low Vision Referrals by Ophthalmologists in a Senior Health Center



Abstract: A review of the records of 307 ophthalmology patients at a senior health center found that of the 47 patients who were deemed appropriate for referral to the low vision clinic, only 13 were actually referred. This finding indicates that ophthalmologists, as well as other physicians, were underutilizing the low vision services that are available to their patients at the center. This article describes the study and discusses the criteria to consider in referring geriatric patients for visual rehabilitation services.
