Date of publication:  March 2010

In a nutshell:  This research considers optometrists’ perceptions, attitudes and beliefs towards diabetes and screening with a view to implementing a pilot study of selective testing in optometry practices. Focus groups and interviews were conducted with 21 optometrists in Northern England indicating a varied awareness of diabetes and early diagnosis, a reluctance to accept a screening role, organisational barriers, and the changing roles of optometrists. In conclusion, optometrists are willing to carry out capillary blood glucose tests, provided that the scheme is simple, is supported by other health care professionals and is properly funded.
