Re: Opticians with diabetes knowledge

[QUOTE=mimi1981;2722103In regard to your first question, all opticians will be qualified to deal with diabetic patients as long as they are aware of the full medical history.[/QUOTE]

NO, sorry but it is absolutely essential to correct you here. All opticians in the UK are, but NOT in Switzerland and NOT in France. They do not have the qualifications, nor the equipment, to properly look at the back of the eyes, filed vision and glaucoma. NOT IN SWITZERLAND - for those you have to go to a medical opthalomogist here, not an optician. My mother lost her sight as I was not aware of this, as I was used to the UK system- I'll always feel guilty about that.
