A recent research study* found that more than three-quarters (78.6%) of patients managed through a virtual A&E consultation eye clinic avoided hospital attendance.

Mean patient wait time in the virtual waiting room was 6 min compared with mean of 2 hours for an in-person visit.

The study concluded that ophthalmic video consultations in A&E can successfully reduce unnecessary hospital visits and be cost-effective and time-efficient for both patients and doctors.
