Save Sight Institute conducts a number of injection clinics for patients diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
In partnership with Inservio, the clinic will this year introduce a series of free patient-based information sessions, with the first session to be conducted in May.
The information session will be held in the clinic waiting room prior to the AMD injection clinic, and is specifically for patients attending for treatment on that day. Presenters will provide important information to attending patients, encouraging a greater understanding of their condition and emphasising the value and impact of complying fully with their prescribed treatment regime.
Save Sight Institute partners with Sydney Eye Hospital to deliver regular treatment clinics for AMD patients, providing access to sight-saving injections for many who are otherwise unable to access privately funded clinical care. The clinics provide patients and the public health system with both logistical and financial assistance, and have long-term benefits on visual outcomes, quality of life and public health expenditure.
Save Sight Institute is committed to supporting patients at all stages of their journey through life with eye disease, and is proud to deliver such an innovative patient support programme.
