The Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) and ITN Productions have released a sponsored report with Heidelberg Engineering as part of the ‘ABDO Insight 2016’ news-style programme which launched in April earlier this year.
“Advances in optical technology have allowed many ocular conditions to be diagnosed on the -High Street via a comprehensive eye health check” explains Christopher Mody, Director of Clinical Services. “Heidelberg Engineering is working closely with dispensing opticians and optometrists to better diagnose conditions and improve patient care in the community”.
In the report, SPECTRALIS owners praise the training received from Heidelberg Engineering which gives them the skills to offer more than a standard eye test and the confidence to refer to an ophthalmologist when signs of disease or change occur.
Introduced by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, the programme also includes interviews with thought-leaders in the industry such as the outgoing president of ABDO, Peter Black. He discusses various topics, including the increasingly active role of dispensing opticians in primary care, the importance of children’s sight tests and the implications of aging population for High Street practices.
