Training Information

Training Details

  • Utilizing the ChromaGen Manual, screeners are trained in the use of visual tasks in how to identify significant visual issues by simple screening methods.

  • Screeners are trained in the use of theChromaGen Survey. The survey is an effective tool for pre-qualfying a patient/student to determine if they will benefit from ChromaGen lenses.

  • Education on visual issues and how they directly impact a person’s daily functioning (school and work). Visual issues include visual acuity, color blindness, eye teaming, light sensitivity, visual distortions, perceptual issues, depth perception, and visual tracking.

  • Negative impacts that visual issues have on daily functioning (i.e., general work/school output, poor reading and writing performance, increased fatigue, poor visual memory, problems in attention and concentration and increased distractibility, etc.).

  • A Power Point demonstration is employed to demonstrate the screening process. The presentation includes personal testimonies from patients that describe how ChromaGen has changed their lives.

  • Hands on training and practice of screening materials. Screeners will become knowledgeable and efficient in the use of the screening materials.

  • ChromaGen will provide contact and networking opportunities with local ophthalmologists and optometrists.

  • Home office support via a direct line of communication with the trainers and ChromaGen support staff.

  • Interactive question and answer forum with Dr. Ed Huggett and Dr. Jeanne Howes.
