College of Optometrists’ funded research identifies weaknesses in optometric data

The College of Optometrists says that the lack of public health data on the prevalence of eye conditions is undermining planning.

The college has published the findings of a research project, which identified that, despite an increasing amount of clinical data being held electronically in optometric practice systems, and a growing prevalence of eye conditions that require greater management, the data is not organised in a way that it can be used for research and service planning purposes.
