Information at your fingertips

Gulden says its new Dovie Cards are a time-saving tool for eye care practitioners. The Dovie Ophthalmics Drug Card features more than 65 of the most commonly-used ophthalmic medications, including available strengths, sizes and typical dosage, as well as information on pediatric dosing. The cards are color coded and categorized by diagnosis.

The Dovie Peds and Pupils Card is a quick reference guide for pediatric testing and billing information. The card offers information on the 11 most common binocular vision disorders and their associated clinical exam findings. Binocular vision and accommodative testing normal/expected values for many pediatric disorders are included, as well as a reference guide illustrating common pupillary anomalies and associated ICD-9 billing codes.

Both cards are the size of an prescription pad and double-sided.
