Episode 15,  Dec 03, 2021, 12:00 PM

Vitreomacular conditions can be sight-threatening if they are not picked up by practitioners. In this episode, optometrist Michelle Hanratty speaks to Mr Kam Balaggan, consultant ophthalmologist and consultant vitreoretinal surgeon. They discuss how to recognise vitreomacular disorders and how to decide when referral is required. Also, to gain an insight from a patient’s perspective, they explore the story of Andy Parkes, who was diagnosed with epiretinal membrane and underwent several surgical procedures.
