Medical Council calls for professionalism

The Medical Council of Malawi (MCM) has challenged doctors who are eye specialists to familiarise themselves with global updated optometry trends so as to join the race of fighting optometry outbreaks like pink eye disease, among others.

MCM Professional Practices Assistant Registrar, Richard Ndovi, made the remarks in Lilongwe during Malawi Optometry Association (MOA) Annual General Meeting.

“During pandemics, there is  need for specialised experts that facilitate timely assistance before problems become severe. This helps patients get timely care and also speeds up financial aid when resources are running low,” Ndovi said.

MOA president, Steven Chimwala, said there is acute shortage of eye doctors in most hospitals which is exerting pressure due to work overload.

Each year, the association holds the AGM with the  aim of equipping doctors with modern Optometry trends and enhancing optometry standards in Malawi, among others.
