Two research papers arising from the College of Optometrists'Enhanced Scheme Evaluation Project (ESEP) and published this month, show that optometrists involved in community schemes are able to provide cataract, glaucoma and primary eye care services to patients safely and effectively. Such schemes can also result in cost savings and reduce the number of hospital eye service (HES) appointments.   The following link will take you to more information. http://www.college-optometrists.org/en/college/news/index.cfm/Community_Eye_Care_Schemes
