Scotland's eye care services are to get an extra £8m ($16.3m) to buy digital eye-imaging (fundus) cameras. The investment is part of a £10.6m modernisation programme, under which the remaining £2.6m will be distributed among the health boards for a range of service improvements. The programme is managed by Optometry Scotland, which was set up in March 2003. The equipment investment seeks to establish the "most advanced" preventive eye care service in the world, said its chairman, Frank Munro.
