It is recognized that personal communication skills can always be enhanced. And today, as the use of computers are becoming more prevalent, correspondence can be made more efficient. Contrary to common thought, computers can be utilized to give a more personal touch to correspondence. Instead of corresponding with patients and other health care professionals with forms that are filled-in by hand, word processors can be used to make correspondence appear much more professional and personal. Over one hundred forms were written and computerized to benefit all in the optometric field. You will find forms for most areas of optometric correspondence. They have been provided for you to copy at no cost. The intention of this project is to enhance doctor-patient communication, as well as communication between professionals, to better the optometric profession as a whole.
