With a patient selected, select the Optical node in the sidebar and click the green plus button to create a new record. The patient's name and account number will appear at the top of the prescription.
Without a patient selected, click the green plus button to create a new record. A drop down window will appear prompting the user to search for and select a patient for the prescription.
Enter the patient's prescription information - the text fields allow for free form data entry, while the drop downs pull from the optical references in the sidebar. Select the Provider, Office, Incident, and the prescription Form from the popup window (if a default form is not selected.) After entering the prescription information, save the record by selecting the Edit menu > Save Record, or using the Command-S keyboard shortcut.
Clicking the Print Rx button will both save the prescription and display the Print window.
