Eye Health with Sigma
Sigma Pharmaceuticals Ltd’s Amcal and Guardian pharmacies are launching an eye health awareness campaign in partnership with the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA).
The campaign would involve Amcal and Guardian pharmacists giving patients a structured plan to help prevent diabetes-related vision loss, including the importance of healthy eating, the role of blood pressure and the need to have regular eye checks, Sigma said.
The campaign will run in July.
CERA principal investigator Dr Peter van Wijngaarden said the organisation was committed to developing an efficient, cost-effective and sustainable nation-wide diabetic eye screening system to detect the early changes of eye disease and start treatment before vision loss occurred.
