Abstract

With a short period of in-house training and a small increase in staffing levels, the orthoptists at the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend have established a glaucoma service, which has brought about u reduction in the waiting times of new referrals to under 12 weeks and care of review eases. This service has significant benefits to the patients and is cost-effective. As ex­perienced decision-making clinicians within the hospital eye care team, orthoptists arc well placed to participate in glaucoma care at a high level.
