Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

Dr Alam, who is Course Director for Doctor of Optometry at The University of Western Australia, said low vision is a neglected area in optometry, and one that needs attention as the incidence is on the rise due to an ageing population. Disappointingly, few planned initiatives have been undertaken explicitly to increase uptake of low vision services.
