dc.descriptionThe investigation and treatment of eye conditions differs from some other aspects of medical practice in that a large proportion of the activity occurs at hospital level particularly at the hospital outpatient department. This arises because of: (a) the limited practical experience that general practitioners and other doctors have in the investigation and management of ophthalmic conditions and (b) the need for special equipment to examine and assist in the diagnosis of ophthalmic conditions. As a result a substantial proportion of the workload involving eyes falls to the specialist. -Until very recently in this country, the-eye specialist was always an ophthalmic surgeon and was hospital based. Thus there have been large numbers of eye patients referred to hospitals and particularly to the outpatient departments. This in turn has given rise to overcrowded clinics and long waiting lists for outpatient ophthalmic services.en_GB
