Co-Managing Optometrists for Out-of-Town Patients
London Eye Centre has treated patients from over 30 countries around the world and regularly performs laser vision correction on patients from all parts of British Columbia and Canada. Patients who live in smaller cities and communities will often travel to London Eye Centres’ New Westminster or North Vancouver locations to take advantage of the experience, technology and all-laser procedure it offers. As such, London Eye Centre has developed an extensive reciprocal patient care program with many optometrists throughout Canada.
London Eye Centre is committed to working very closely with your local eye care professional to provide the best possible pre and post-operative care for your procedure. In most cases, this care will be paid for by London Eye Centre, and is included in your surgical fee – whereas with most laser correction facilities, the patient will pay for their procedure and their hometown follow-up care separately, adding significant expense.
London Eye Centre’s co-management optometrists will not only perform your follow-up visits, but will provide the laser facility with patient progress reports, ensuring the best possible medical care throughout the patients’ recovery. Patients utilizing a co-managing optometrist can be assured London Eye Centre will always be available to provide reassurance and medical advice at all times.
If you would like to have your consultation exam or follow-up care performed by one of our co-managing optometrists near you, call 604-526-2020 and our Education department staff will be happy to help co-ordinate this for you.
