Patient Start-Up Process
Please refer to the eligibility requirements, contraindications, warnings and risks before considering if a patient is suitable for VRT.
The patient will require a visual field examination and the completion of various other forms. The patient should then call NovaVision Patient Services or register with NovaVision online; alternatively, a physician can register the patient directly if they participate in the NovaVision Professional Physician Model.
During the registration process, NovaVision will verify the patient’s candidacy and once complete including payment, NovaVision will send the patient a chinrest and activate their therapy license. Guides will be provided to help the patient download, set up and start their therapy. The patient will then complete a series of tests to evaluate their vision deficit. NovaVision then analyses the test results to create and send the patient a customised therapy program.
The patient should then begin their twice-daily therapy regimen as soon as possible. The therapy will be updated regularly based on the patient’s deficit and progress with the treatment. During the course of the therapy, the physician will be provided with the patient’s regular results reports and can meet with the patient at any time to evaluate progress.
