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.
