Macular Disease Foundation Australia (MDFA) has free webinars for health professionals
More than 1.4 million Australians have some evidence of AMD – the leading cause of irreversible severe vision loss and blindness in Australia – while between 300,000 and 400,000 Australians live with diabetic retinopathy – the leading cause of preventable blindness among people of a working age.
Healthcare professionals are at the frontline of patient interactions and have a valuable role in decreasing preventable blindness and in being an important part of the solution to reduce both the incidence and impact of macular disease.
MDFA’s webinars are aimed at improving the outcomes of macular disease.
