Nurse practitioners with the Vanderbilt Medical Center have just reported the first results of an ongoing vision screening program/study. This screenings are taking place at the Vine Hill Community Clinic, a nurse practitioner-run facility that provides primary care to indigent families. The vision screenings are targeting diabetes-related eye problems and sight loss. The screenings at the clinic are just as effective as traditional tests, plus they are more convenient for patients and 25% cheaper overall. Read more about this study at www.mc.vanderbilt.edu.
