When I was studying for the California Optometric State Law Exam I realized something that made my life a lot easier. It was that there is a “method to the madness” for referrals and consultations.
What I decided to do was make a flow chart to make everything easier.
Before Reading The Flow Chart
Understand that there are only 5 possible scenarios that can occur.
- The condition “gets worse”
- The condition “recurres”
- There condition shows “no improvement”
- The patient is “still on meds”
- The condition is “not resolved”
Worse, Recurrence, No Improvement and Still on Meds are easy. The hard part to memorize is if the condition is not resolved.
