Our UCHealth Pediatric-Adult Transition Clinic caters specifically to adults with special needs, who might otherwise have difficulty getting eye appointments or the level of care they need. Many of these patients are nonverbal or have severe intellectual delays that can be challenging for eye exams. This clinic utilizes the strengths and skills that pediatric ophthalmologists use every day to help this underserved population of patients who need to move out of Children’s Hospital Colorado or other children-focused care and into a more appropriate care setting.
The clinic is currently offered twice monthly. Dr. Puente sees patients on the fourth Tuesday of each month, while Dr. Gomez sees patients every first Tuesday of the month.
