7pm Lecture by Professor Madhavan Rajan

The referrals from optometrists form a major part of the workload undertaken in any hospital eye service. Community optometrists are often the first to examine patients with eye problems and therefore best placed to diagnose and manage most primary eye disorders. This lecture and contents of the talk will be focussed on referral refinement to improve quality of such correspondence between community optometrists and HES and vice versa. In addition, the talk will describe various anterior segment disorders and their early detection with implications of delayed referrals. Finally Professor Rajan will present the results of a successful share cared scheme with emphasis on good communication between all stake holders for the overall benefit in patient care
