Dr Kaines with local optometrists

Last night, MetWest Eye Centre held it’s annual Eye Update for Optometrists.  Dr Andrew Kaines (pictured left) gave a highly entertaining presentation on diabetes.  He focused on:

  • sharing care of diabetic patients – re-emphasising when it is essential for patients to be referred to an Ophthalmologist.
  • the importance of long-term blood sugar and blood pressure control.
  • new treatments for diabetic retinopathy and macular oedema.
