Welcome to our presentation on using Ocutech’s Bioptic Prescribing Worksheet. We hope you will find this clinical assessment and prescribing guide helpful in your low vision practice.

A successful bioptic telescope prescription requires 4 general components. First that your patient has the appropriate goals for the use of the device- which are usually for seeing at distance and mid-range. Second, that their vision responds to telescopic magnification. Next, that they have or can develop the skills needed to use the device, and lastly that they are motivated to make the investment in time, effort, and finances to learn to use it and even to wear it in public.
