Authorization and Consent Form
Eye Health Dr. Cowan will examine the inside of your eyes for signs of eye diseases and cancers, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, RA, multiple sclerosis, cholesterol, certain brain tumors and more. NOTE: patients 9 & younger ARE REQUIRED TO BE DILATED
Dilation, no additonal charge
Optomap Retinal Scanning - $32.00 (not covered by insurance)
Neither, I refuse eye health. I understand as a direct consequence of this refusal, Dr. Cowan may not be able to detect cases in which the retina is diseased, physically compromised or harboring tumorous growths. Accordingly, the process of early detection and diagnosis of certain eye conditions, eye diseases, and systematic diseases may be hindered and timely referral to a specialist and effective treatment may not be possible. By refusing to have your eye health examined by either dilation or Optomap you are accepting any and all risk for the possibility of not detecting these conditions and any long-term damage that is a result of your refusal.
