In recent months, The Eye Center began utilizing several new modes of technology to provide patient care and services. Eight iPads, one of the world's most popular pieces of technology, are now being used in the Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation Service.
The iPads permit their users mobility and easier access to the Vision Therapy Program, including information sheets on techniques and demonstration videos. New Compulink screens were created, including the ability to look at the entire history of the VT program at once. The mobility of the iPad even allows patients to be checked in while waiting in line.
Elsewhere on the technology front, a state-of-the-art 52-inch touch screen Sanet Vision Integrator (SVI) is also being utilized in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation Service. The monitor can be used with all patient types, including those with learning-related vision problems, tracking issues, and brain injury.
The screen is movable and able to be tilted or turned so the unit can be used with patients with mobility issues. Activities include hand-eye coordination, and other factors such as color and contrast can also be controlled. As VTR chief Dr. Marc Taub noted, technology is providing 21st century practitioners with more options for patient care than ever before!
