The ACO has launched the first in a series of new and unique online programs for optometrists to enable them to self assess their knowledge of specific eye conditions and their ability to provide an initial diagnosis of the condition, within a simulated and timed patient consultation.
The program developed by the ACO in consultation with the wider optometry community, was piloted by registered optometrists (including ACO members) and aims to ultimately support the delivery of best practice eye health care. The first program to be released is for initial glaucoma diagnosis and will be followed by other self-assessment programs including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, high myopia and anterior eye.
