In conjunction with the Macular Degeneration Foundation, MetWest Staff and Doctors promoted MD awareness and eating for eye health during MD awareness week. All Doctors and Staff participated in the week-long annual campaign to increase awareness of this debilitating eye disease. All the latest MD publications and newsletters are available to patients whilst at MetWest Eye Centre, or alternatively via www.mdfoundation.com.au
MetWest held it’s third successful patient education seminar on Saturday 14 May. Dr John Stokes (Inservio Pty Ltd) introduced patients to simple eye and retinal anatomy and explained the differences between wet and dry macula degeneration as well as the current available management treatments.
The patients and Dr Stokes also discussed current evidence on nutrition, diet and lifestyle – with patients encouraged to utilise the resources of the Macular Degeneration Foundation (available via www.mdfoundation.com.au)
