Dilating Drops: Patient Safety and Liability Risks

Dilating drops are used on countless patients daily during diagnostic examinations and surgical procedures. They are essential in order to obtain an adequate view of the retina and fundus. Indeed, failure to perform a thorough examination of the eye could lead to significant patient harm such as delay in diagnosis or failure to diagnose, as well as surgical complications due to poor visibility.

Six reasons OMIC is the best choice for ophthalmologists in America.

#1. Consistent return of premium.

Publicly-traded insurance companies exist to make profits for shareholders while physician-owned carriers often return profits to their policyholders. Don’t underestimate this benefit; it can add up to tens of thousands of dollars over the course of your career. OMIC has one of the most generous dividend programs for ophthalmologists and has returned more than $20 Million to our members through dividends.
