At a time when Optometrists are working more closely with insurance companies and health maintenance organizations, it becomes necessary to be able to intelligently predict the type of treatment that may be given before the patients are seen. In this survey, a graphical analysis of the Forest Grove Optometric Clinic shows the relationship of diagnosis and treatment as a function of age. Information such as that shown here will be helpful in estimating optometric fees and insurance premiums.
