“GOOD SCRIPTS ARE HARD TO FIND” – DANIEL CRAIG

Welcome to the encyclopedia of patient scripts, or “Scriptopedia,” where you, our readers, submit specific scripts that you or your staff have used with great success in your practice. Each script is presented with the goal of either increasing patient education or the dispensing of a product or service. This month’s topic: Introducing Office Technology to patients.

“Mr. Smith, thank you so much for coming in today. What I would like to do now is take some measurements of the front surface of your eye to enable the doctor to determine the most accurate prescription possible for your glasses today.

Dr. Jasper believes that our patients deserve the best in everything, and this technology enables us to give you just that. When we finish obtaining your measurements, Dr. Jasper will review them with you during your consultation.” — April Jasper, O.D., F.A.A.O.



“Our practice prides itself on introducing new technologies that can improve our decision making and implementation of better treatment plans for you. This exciting new technology allows us to evaluate several levels of visual distortion that can occur in your eyes and lead to blurry vision and eye fatigue. By utilizing this digital technology, along with special digital technologies in the fitting and alignment of your eyewear, you can be assured of a more enjoyable experience in the process of addressing your vision needs.” — Walter Choate, O.D.



“Our office has recently acquired a [device name]. This instrument is the very latest technology and enables us to better measure [device purpose]. It has greatly improved outcomes for patients like you. The doctor has recommended this as part of your exam today.” — Derek Hamilton, O.D.
