Patient education is just one of several challenges when it comes to dispensing. Patients depend on their OD and optician to make the right recommendation for their vision.
When it comes to choosing frames, lens designs, and enhancements, you are the foremost expert. The world of optics can be confusing to many patients, and no two patients are alike. Because patients don’t know which lenses and enhancements they need, it’s important to help them understand why you are recommending a given solution.
One patient may comprehend everything while others are left scratching their heads as to what all the different options mean for them. Anything you can do to give patients a better understanding will give them confidence in their purchase and avoid the dreaded buyer’s remorse down the road.
If you want your patients to feel secure about what they’re getting in their eyewear, educating them is a must. And in the coming weeks, educating patients will get a lot easier following the launch of the new Unity Patient Education Kit.
Before touching on what’s included in this kit and how to get one, it’s important to understand the value in stocking patient-facing educational tools.
Patient Education: When Knowledge is Power
It’s hard to deny the impact educational tools like brochures and dispensing mats have on your patients’ decision making. Using pieces of collateral like these can optimize their office visit and support your dispensing success.
The Unity Patient Education Kit is strategically assembled with a variety of tools to inform your patients and enhance their experience from check-in to pick-up. When used in conjunction with your dispensing best-practices, it will create a powerful one-two punch to alert patients to visual problems and their optical solutions, while building confidence in your recommendation and their ultimate decision.
