If your patient complains of poor vision:

For distance vision issues.

It is useful to use a pinhole occluder to differentiate refractive errors from other causes of blurry vision. A pinhole occluder is in Main Clinic, in the red Diabetes Supply Box kept by the CMs at the front desk. It is in a manila envelope. To use it, have the patient hold it so the big hole is over the eye being tested, and then have them focus on the Snellen chart. Lower the pinhole shield so it is in front of their eye, and finally measure their acuity.

For reading / near vision issues.

Finally, fill out this Google Form with the patient.
