ALBANY, NY, October 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The new Brass Eye Center web site incorporates the use of the Sophrona Patient Portal, an ophthalmology specific online patient communication tool that frees patients to communicate with the practice any time of day or night without reliance on the telephone.
"As we made the more advanced eye surgery techniques of laser cataract surgery, multifocal and astigmatism correcting cataract lens implants a routine part of our practice, the need for more thorough information about vision loss from cataracts and how we can address it became a key element of how we use our web site. We believe that having more information about cataracts, cataract surgery and lens implants will help patients make effective choices about their eye care and prevent a cataract from interfering with their daily activities, driving, mobility and overall quality of life," explained Albany Corneal Specialist & Cataract Surgeon Robert Brass, M.D. "Further, we are hopeful that the need for regular eye exams for glaucoma and age related macular degeneration (AMD) as well as diabetic eye exams is reinforced for patients who are at risk. Education is the first step to compliance with exams for early detection, diagnosis and treatment to prevent vision loss," shared Dr. Brass.
Donna Murphy, Practice Administrator at Brass Eye Center commented on the incorporation of the Sophrona Patient Portal. "We chose to incorporate this convenient and innovative portal to make it easier for patients to register, schedule appointments and pay bills online through our web site 24 hours a day, making the process incredibly convenient while maintaining privacy and accuracy. Patients can now access these features along with detailed information about eye health and vision very easily," noted Ms. Murphy. "It's great for patients wishing to schedule their regular eye exams for glasses and contacts - or really any type of visit at our office," she explained.
