Convenient and pocket-sized, this unique eyecare resource helps improve communication and patient care in every office that serves Spanish-speaking patients. It mimics how each member of the eyecare team interacts with patients, aiding clinicians and office workers in formulating explanations, instructions, and questions in Spanish. A companion audio CD-ROM provides the English-to-Spanish translation of every phrase in the book.Table of Contents
- Covers everything from salutations to case histories and follow up care — in the style the eyecare team interacts with patients, related to both administration and procedures.
- Uses simple, non-technical terms to maximize patient comprehension for both yes/no and open-ended questions.
- Includes a companion audio CD-ROM that provides the English-to-Spanish translation of every phrase in the book, plus printable patient handouts in Spanish.
- Features contributions by an ophthalmologist to enhance surgical coverage, while contributions by an optician provide more coverage of dispensing and front office exchanges.
- Contains anatomical diagrams labeled in Spanish.
- Provides extensive coverage of contact lenses and specific conditions such as eye injuries.
- Includes a glossary offering an English-to-Spanish list of common words and phrases divided by categories — such as days of the week, interrogative questions, common optometric terms, and other terms in common use that are not necessarily related to optometry.
- Provides several versions of equivalent expressions so that users with different styles of communication will be able to select the expressions that they like best.
