The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital (Eye and Ear), has partnered with the World Association of Eye Hospitals (WAEH) to produce a new animated eye drops application video.
The video has been launched in time for Word Sight Day.
Co-funded by WAEH and the Nelken Trust, the video forms a Patient Eye Drop Education Package to be used globally to teach a standardised technique for clinicians and patients, with the aim to improve compliance and health literacy.
WAEH is proud to have developed a practical, patient centered resource that will benefit the eye healthcare of patients globally
“Correct use of eye drops is a shared responsibility between patient, doctor, nurse and pharmacy team. WAEH is proud to have developed a practical, patient centered resource that will benefit the eye healthcare of patients globally. It has specifically been animated to allow for translation into any language,” said Cathy Kowalewski, Chair of the Executive Board of the WAEH. “I would encourage all eye health professionals to share it with their patients.”
The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital led the important improvement project in collaboration with the Wilmer Eye Centre, John Hopkins, Baltimore USA; Moorfield’s Eye Hospital, NHS Foundation, London UK; Rotterdam Eye Hospital, Netherlands; Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami, USA; Aravind Eye Care, India and Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore.
