We've developed two tear-off pads for you to use with your patients: 

Tear off pads on the instillation of eye drops

In line with College guidance, after the instillation of eye drops optometrists should give patients an information sheet advising on possible side effects and how long the effects may last. We have produced tear-off pads on cyclopentolate eye drops, local anaesthetic eye drops and tropicamide eye drops and include space for you to add your practice details and date the drops were administered.

Amsler charts

This chart can be distributed to patients to use at home.  It has instructions for use and you can stamp it with your practice details.

The eye

This illustration of the eye is available as a web-only document for you to print and distribute to your patients as and when required.
