The American Optometric Association will present its next evidence-based clinical practice guideline, Comprehensive Adult Eye and Vision Examination, for an online 30-day public review period.

The Comprehensive Adult Eye and Vision Examination guideline describes appropriate examination procedures for evaluation of the eye health and vision status of adult patients to ensure clear and comfortable vision.

This AOA guideline meets the Institute of Medicine standards as outlined in its report, Clinical Practice Guidelines We Can Trust. As part of those standards, guideline development requires external review from relevant stakeholders, such as scientific and clinical experts, agencies, industry and the public.

“Putting this guideline out for public review provides an opportunity for an even broader perspective of input that’s critically important to this process,” said Diane Adamczyk, O.D., chair of the AOA Evidence-Based Optometry (EBO) Committee, which is responsible for compiling the evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.

Review of the Comprehensive Adult Eye and Vision Examination guideline provides the AOA EBO Committee with the necessary feedback to know how best to reach multiple stakeholders with personal or professional interest in this guideline, noted Dr. Adamczyk.

The peer and public review period officially began Feb. 6, 2015, and comments will be accepted through March 10, 2015. The finished guideline will be available later in 2015.
