EyeSmart: The best prescription for eye health information

They google movie times, recipes and product reviews, so of course patients also turn to the Internet with their health questions. While that may sometimes make your job harder, it’s also an opportunity to educate your patients on the difference between more and less reputable sources of information.

When it comes to eye-health questions, you can tell them the EyeSmart® public education program was developed by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the same organization you trust for clinical resources like the Basic and Clinical Sciences Course and the Ophthalmic News and Education (ONE®) Network. EyeSmart’s comprehensive website – www.GetEyeSmart.org – has trustworthy, ophthalmologist-reviewed information that you and your patients can rely on, and it is expanding weekly.

Plus, for your Spanish-speaking patients, EyeSmart now has information on more than 30 diseases and conditions, including several videos in Spanish. Navigation for this section is still in development, but you can view a complete list of topics on the EyeSmart website.

Tell your patients about EyeSmart by providing a link from your practice website, and by ordering free materials – including info cards and posters – for your waiting room and exam areas.
