Posters used at the first Birdshot Day 2010

Below are links to posters designed by Moorfields Eye Hospital staff.  We are very grateful to the staff for preparing these specially for the first Birdshot Day.  The posters on medicines summarise some of the side-effects and drug or food interactions for each medicine.

The poster on ERG testing gives more information about the test and explains what is involved, using diagrams and photographs.
