Type of Practice: HMO: Primary Care Optometry (Adult & Pediatric), Co-­management of patients with ophthalmology and other medical services.

Patient Care:

The student intern will work independently and collaboratively with a staff of 12 optometrists, 8 ophthalmologists (subspecialties to include retina, glaucoma, urgent care, oculo-­plastics and pediatric/strabismus), ophthalmic techs, large optical department, contact lens fitter, pharmacy and interactions with other medical services.

Patients will be examined, diagnosed and treated directly through office visits. All interactions will be documented and managed through a fully integrated EHR (electronic health record) system. Interns will spend a great portion of their time seeing patients (8-­12+ daily), but will have additional exposure working with ophthalmology and ocular technology services.

Diagnostic scanning equipment: Spectralis OCT (optical coherence tomography) with macula, optic nerve, anterior segment angle and corneal measurement capacities. The clinic also houses a retinal digital camera, fluorescein angiography camera, YA & SLT lasers, corneal topographer and manual/automated ultrasound devices.
