Snowy Range Vision Center (SRVC) 2011 Community Partner of the Year
Snowy Range Vision Center in Laramie, Wyoming
Snowy Range Vision
For over 20 years, the optometrists of Snowy Range Vision Center have partnered with UW’s nurse practitioner (NP) program to develop student knowledge and skills about visual health. From helping students understand the relationship between vision and overall health to the diagnosis and management of common eye problems, Dr. Sue Lowe and her colleagues have consistently gone above and beyond, from lecturing in campus courses to holding hands-on visual assessments at Snowy Range Vision Center. Dr. Lowe and her colleagues work closely with each student to ensure that they are all able to perform basic screening exams, as well as ophthalmoscopy or examination of the back of the eye. They also provide one-on-one guidance to students who would like more experience with particular assessment techniques. The NP program faculty are proud to honor Snowy Range Vision Center with our first Community Partner Award.
