Dates: 09/03/2012 to 06/04/2012
Pass Mark: 60%
This article aims to highlight the links between eye health and systemic health. The optometrist is well-placed to detect early signs of potential systemic and ocular disease, whilst detailed history and symptoms discussion can allow the practitioner to determine a patient's health and lifestyle choices and needs. By offering advice and support based on this information, an optometrist therefore performs an essential public health function in helping to reduce and prevent vision loss from both ocular and systemic disease.
