Please remember that any purchase (glasses/contacts) from EyePunk.com creates jobs and job training for those in rehabilitation systems and individuals with felony records. Together we can help others with a fresh start by RECYCLING THE MONEY while supplying your visual needs.
Record the progress of each patient
and keep on file a Vision Station Patient Record Form for each
patient. (This will be going online soon)
- If the patient
needs to be referred to an eye doctor, discuss the fees and hours
offered by the doctors working with your vision station. Consider
whether bilingual services are needed.
- Ask the patient
which doctor (possibly one that is not on the list) s/he wants
to see. Make a note of this on the Patient Record Form. Offer
directions or suggestions about transportation.
- Make a copy
of the Patient Record Form for the patient; fax the Patient Record
Form to the doctor.
- If the patient
may need eyeglasses, measurements and frame selection may be done
at this time. Record the information on the Visual Compassion Prescription Order Form and keep it on file. If the patient obtains a prescription,
you will be ready to send the order to the optical company. Send a copy of this form with the patient incase they wish to order online later. Please review the Eyepunk ordering process with them.
- If glasses
are prescribed, the doctor may fax the prescription to the Vision
Station or the patient may bring it to you. Complete the Visual Compassion Prescription Order Form, and either fax it to 281-516-3113 with
the patientís prescription or order directly through EyePunk.com .The doctor and/or patient can order their glasses directly from EyePunk.com if they have their optical measurements.
