Welsh Government to extend video consultations to optometry

Following the introduction of video consultations by General Practitioners as a result of the pandemic, the Welsh Government has announced that video consultation services will be extended to opticians, dental practices, and community pharmacies.

Optometry will benefit from video consultation by using it for pre-visit check-ups on a patient’s medical history. It will also support triage to examine a person’s eyelids. Video consultation can also be used to allow a specialist ophthalmologist to join the consultation call.
