As our population continues to grow and change, the demands on healthcare services across the UK are increasing. As secondary care struggles to cope with the rising demands, more and more responsibilities are being passed to primary care. In an ever-medicalising profession, primary care optometrists are being required to adapt the way they practice in order to take a more active role in the management of their patients.

This lecture will discuss the changes occurring in primary care optometry as well as the emerging technological advances in both diagnostic and management techniques that are creating opportunities for specialist practice.
