What is Local Pharmacist

If you’re managing an eye condition such as dry eye, macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or pink eye, you may work closely with your local pharmacist. A local pharmacist is a health care provider who is trained in filling prescriptions for everything from methotrexate for arthritis to antidepressants. But a local pharmacist’s role is much more than that. They can also educate you on the right over-the-counter medications for you, advise you of any potential drug interactions between medications you’re taking and educate you on the benefits and side effects of a certain drug. For example, if you have diabetes, your local pharmacist can help you understand insulin injection techniques and blood glucose monitoring options. If you have heart disease, your local pharmacist can teach you about potential interactions between various medications and supplements. If you’ve had vitrectomy surgery in one eye, they can give you the info and medications you need to prevent infections and complications. They can work with your health care team, from your local family physician and optometrist to your local naturopathic doctor. If you want more information on the role of local pharmacists in the management of eye conditions, including elderly eye syndromes, reach out to your local optometrist, ophthalmologist or family physician.
