Blind registration is available for those patients with visual acuity of less than 3/60 in their better eye or gross field defects, affording some financial help and social service support. Patients with a visual acuity of less than 6/60 in their better eye are eligible for registration as partially sighted. They must be registered by an ophthalmologist using the BD8 form. Printing in braille is valuable but many diabetic patients have impaired fine sensation in their fingertips, making it difficult for them to read it. Insulin "pens", in which palpable clicks correspond to units of insulin are valuable for blind patients.
