The March issue of mivision ophthalmic journal is out now. In this issue we look into two of the leading causes of irreversible blindness – Glaucoma and Diabetic Eye Disease.
World Glaucoma Week runs from 9 – 15 March. It’s staggering to think that every second person with glaucoma in Australia goes undiagnosed.
Diabetic eye disease is described as a looming health crisis. Predictions are that by 2025 an estimated two million Australians will have the disease. In our lead story, we delve into a report produced by two of Australia’s leading research institutes – CERA and the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.
There are two CPD education articles for optometrists to complete in this issue. Our education modules this month focus on new technologies driving eye care management today and are each worth two points.
Since it was launched in July 2011 the mivision independent clinical learning centre has accounted for approximately. 10 per cent of the total CPD points accumulated by Australia’s 4,400 optometrists.1
In the latest report by Audited Media Association of Australia mivision is rated Australia’s No. 1 CAB Audited Optometry and Ophthalmology publication.2
What is CAB?
A CAB audited distribution promotes accountability in publishing. CAB protects advertisers by demonstrating real circulation/distribution figures through audited data. It is extremely important in the publishing industry as some publications promote ‘publisher’s claims’, which are not audited. The CAB brand is known and trusted by advertisers and media buyers.
