Advancing Oculoplastics with Virtual Field


Dr. Sismanis specializes in oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery. During a recent interview we delved into the challenges faced in the field of ophthalmic care, particularly concerning insurance requirements and the need for reliable testing methods. The conversation revolved around how Virtual Field technology has become a game-changer in this arena. Exams used: Superior 36, 30-2 BOLT.

Case study

Insurance Challenges:

Year after year, dealing with insurance has become increasingly complex. The key to navigating this intricate landscape lies in having a dependable testing field, preferably an automated one. You want a system that doesn't require a dedicated staff to operate. With some traditional systems, you need a person on it round the clock, and even then, the results can be less than satisfactory. 

On the contrary, Virtual Field technology has emerged as a breath of fresh air. Technicians can set it up and practically walk away. It's become a go-to choice because it's reliable and makes the insurance process smoother.

Streamlined Process:

What's really appreciated about Virtual Field is how it streamlines everything. It simplifies the process of presenting insurance-ready data, making life easier for practitioners. It's also worth noting that the headset still allows for the use of the standard taping and untaping protocol, which is great.

Enhancing Patient Care:

Speaking of patients, Virtual Field technology has had a significant impact on their care. It's not just about insurance compliance; it's about real-time monitoring. For instance, there was this case where a patient had swelling in their eye socket and visual deterioration. We did a Virtual Field test, identified the problem, and got her to the hospital, putting her on steroids. Subsequent tests while in the hospital showed her condition improving. We managed to avoid emergency surgery because Virtual Field was there to expedite her care. Also, patients really do love Virtual Field and prefer it over table top perimeters for its ease of use and comfort.

Subscription Model:

The subscription model for Virtual Field technology is no brainer. No need to keep buying new devices or paying for maintenance and downtime is minimal. It's really given us peace of mind.
