Interdisciplinary Co-Management: An Evolution of Vision Rehabilitation and Patient Care

“One of the measures of a profession’s maturity is the level at which its practitioners recognize their limitation,” Albert A. Bucar, OD, DOS. Vision rehabilitation specialists are no exception. From low vision specialists to occupational therapists to psychologists, we all must acknowledge the fact that we can’t be all things to all patients. Vision rehabilitation specialists must work together to provide our patients with the best of all of our services. By utilizing the principles in interdisciplinary co-management, we have the opportunity to integrate the care that we provide in order to maximize patient care and improve their quality of life.
