Virtual clinics in patient care

With current increasing population on one hand, and aging population on the other, the capacity of face- to-face clinics is stretched. To manage patients with chronic eye conditions such as glaucoma, wet AMD, RVO and diabetic retinopathy, virtual clinics are a great solution to review stable patients in a timely manner.
