Coordinating care with optometrists

OMIC policyholders report on renewal applications that they are increasingly incorporating optometrists (ODs) into their practices. While optometrists are independent practitioners, there are differences in education and legal scope of practice between eye physicians/surgeons and ODs, as well as different scopes of practice among traditional optometrists and those with therapeutic certification. All these differences must be respected in order to comply with state laws and provide safe care. Coordinating Care with Optometrist within a Practice addresses the key issues.
