Skills and Training
The incidence of medical retina disorders is increasing with the rising age of the population. Concurrently, the advent of new treatments such as anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents means that more patients are eligible for ophthalmic interventions. Hence, the impact of conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other vascular disorders on clinical practice on the high street and in hospital eye clinics is increasing. This module aims to provide optometrists with the opportunity to expand their knowledge of common medical retina conditions, their diagnosis, referral and management. This will be of benefit, not only to community based optometrists wishing to develop their professional skills, but also to optometrists who wish to commence working in hospital medical retina clinics or diabetic retinopathy screening services.Content outline
