Evidence-Based Optometry

Ask

When you see a patient, you're going to have some questions about their condition or potential condition.

Those more basic, general questions are background questions. Let's say you've just spoken with a patient who you believe to have retinitis pigmentosa. Your background questions might include things like: 

  • What are the symptoms of retinitis pigmentosa?
  • What are treatment options for this disease?
  • What are the cormorbities associated with this disease?
  • What are the incidence and prevalence rates associated with this disease?

Where can you look for information that answers these questions?

  • Government resources for statistical questions (incidence and prevalence, for example):

CDC's Vision Health Initiative

National Eye Institute's statistics on eye diseases

National Center for Health Statistics
