What is the Outcome Simulator?

Rendia’s Outcome Simulator was born out of conversations with our customers who explained their challenges communicating the value of premium IOLs or the side effects of refractive surgery to their patients.

This is the second half of a two-part series in honor of Meet the Blind Month.

Whether it’s you, your boss, or an employee, understand the pros and cons of working with this personality type
