Ophthalmic Services Guidance: Primary Eye Care, Community Ophthalmology and General Ophthalmology (England)

Share options

Ophthalmology is now the busiest outpatient attendance specialty. With demand already overwhelming many hospital eye services, innovative approaches for the management of acute and chronic eye disease are necessary to provide safe and sustainable services. 

This document jointly developed by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the College of Optometrists, aims to outline the roles of primary eye care and community ophthalmology, the related development of general ophthalmology as a specialty, and how ophthalmic services could be better reconfigured enabling a more comprehensive service by ‘the right person, in the right place’ appropriate for that patient’s condition.
