Available Now: All-New Patient Education Videos from the Academy

The Academy has launched 4 all-new subspecialty video collections, a new video for the ophthalmic waiting room, and all-new animations for Digital-Eyes Ophthalmic Animations for Patients. These complete the Academy’s revamp of its entire suite of patient education materials, including redesigned and rewritten brochures and handouts, and a retina patient education video collection.

The waiting room video briefly discusses many common ophthalmic conditions along with informational and entertaining segments on eyes and vision. Each subspecialty-focused patient education video collection (cataract and refractive surgery, glaucoma, oculoplastics, and pediatrics) explains benefits, risks, and alternatives for many of today’s common procedures. The collections are intended to accomplish the following:

  • Educate patients through videos/animations and easy-to-understand explanations that will improve patients’ comprehension.
  • Put patients at ease while setting realistic expectations for their particular conditions.
  • Deliver accurate, consistent and trustworthy information to strengthen your informed consent process and reduce malpractice risk.

Features. All the patient education videos are concise and free or advertisement. They are produced in high-definition and include high-quality animations. The videos are available in English and Spanish versions. You can use them on any platform, from desktops and tablets to smartphones. With the waiting room video, new topics, soundtracks, and Q&As have been added.

Add a personal touch. The videos are also customizable—you can add a personalized introduction to any video. While you’re attending AAO 2015, you can film an introduction in the Video Production Studio in the Resource Center (Booth 2632).

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

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 $90 Million to our members through dividends.
