Oculo has partnered with Glaucoma Australia to enable clinicians to use the platform to refer people with glaucoma and their families to Glaucoma Australia for education and support.
“This is important both for patient care and to promote the central role of optometry in primary eye care,” said Dr. Kate Taylor, CEO of Oculo. “Oculo is an inclusive system that facilitates quality care for eye patients. We are very pleased to be able to extend that service through the partnership with Glaucoma Australia.”
Annie Gibbins, CEO of Glaucoma Australia said, “Working with Oculo… is a good fit with our mission to eliminate glaucoma blindness. We are now more equipped to detect, diagnose, treat and support pproximately 150,000 people who are currently unaware they have glaucoma.”
