Why Is It Important?
In order to be able to examine the eyes effectively, it is important to have a basic knowledge of relevant anatomy.
The administration of eye medicines falls within the clinician’s role of administering medicines and is therefore subject to the same level of care as applied to other medicines.
Eye care should be undertaken by properly trained and competent healthcare professionals.
