Ophthalmic Photographic Diabetic Review (OPDR): a virtual clinic approach for management of referable diabetic maculopathy

Digital diabetic eye screening has caused an increase in referrals to hospital eye services creating capacity problems. An additional patient pathway was devised and incorporated into the screening software so patients with early maculopathy cold be cared for in a virtual manner.

The aim of the audit was to assess the effectiveness of OPDR in monitoring special groups of patients and those with early referrable maculopathy.
