Drs. Matoba Optometrists had the pleasure of screening the Red Rocks Community College. Dr. Joel K. Matoba and Dr. Kirk S. Matoba were able to visit old stomping grounds at Red Rocks Community College were they spent time gaining credits towards their Optometric careers.
Drs. Joel, Kirk and Emily Matoba screened students and facility of both Lakewood and Arvada Campus on August 22nd and August 21st. The doctors gave advice, recommendations and resources for those seen.
As part of our mission to give back to the community, it was a great experience to give back to a institution that has helped our own doctors grow. We at Drs. Matoba Optometrists look forward to working with red Rocks Community College again in the future!
We at Drs. Matoba Optometrists are happy to say we have completed our first day working with Ensight Skills Center! Ensight is a non-profit organization that works to provide low vision tools, counseling and training that empowers independent and productive living. Ensight works with Optometrists in Low Vision and has an Occupational Therapist (OT) to help the patients use the devices and understand their own vision impairments better. The occupational therapist also will make home visits to help make sure the patient is comfortable with any new devices and help in guiding the patient to a more independent lifestyle.
We have formed a partnership where one Wednesday a month we see patients needing low vision evaluations with a trained OT. Drs. Kirk Matoba and Emily Matoba worked with patients with low vision to optimize the vision they have. They worked with an OT, Ms. Marks who helped explain utilization of devices and further options to be done at their home.
We look forward to continue this service to our patients with low vision needs!
