Individuals with intellectual and neurodevelopmental delay have increased incidence of refractive, binocular and ocular health issues and are often not under the active care plan of an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Over 80 percent of this population is mildly or moderately impaired. Utilizing a modified approach to care and alternative tools to obtain acuity and other measures can lead to an increased number of patients in this cohort being successfully managed in your office.
