Developing a cataract handbook for optometrists

  • The purpose of this master thesis is to make a manual on cataracts so that optometrists in the Republic of Croatia have in one place everything about the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of cataracts. According to the World Health Organization cataract is one of the leading causes of vision impairment in the world. By properly diagnosing the type of cataract, we provide patients with a better quality of life and a visual aid with which they will achieve maximum visual acuity. This master’s thesis will summarize all the knowledge from the master's degree in Aalen in order to get a broader picture of the formation of cataracts. On daily basis optometrists encounter cataract pathology, the goal is to better understand what affects cataract formation, from drugs to systemic diseases, and to ultimately help the client see better after resolving cataract pathology.
