Education is the Key to Patient Empowerment

The value of patient education can be summarized as:

  • Improved understanding of one's medical condition, diagnosis, and disease
  • Improved understanding of methods and means to manage multiple aspects of glaucoma
  • Improved self-advocacy when working in cooperation with one's doctor
  • Increased Compliance — effective communication and patient education increases patient motivation to comply
  • Patient Outcomes — patients more likely to respond well to their treatment plan with fewer complications
  • Informed Consent — patients feel the doctor has provided the information they need
  • Satisfaction and referrals — patients more likely to stay with the doctor's practice and refer other patients
