Ophthalmology: Theory & Practice
Improve your understanding and capabilities!
The program was designed to improve your understanding and capabilities in ophthalmology while also having fun. David Maggs and Mark Billson will place special emphasis on performing a high-yield ophthalmic exam with the instruments already in your clinic, choosing the best diagnostic tests, perfecting ophthalmic surgical techniques, and discussing which drugs to use when.
Both speakers work with referring vets on a daily basis and their philosophy is to emphasise a group of concepts that they call 'TIWIKIPS' (or 'Things I Wish I'd Known In Practice') with the ultimate goal is that you leave the course saying "I am going back to try this in my practice next week".
Note: Participants of the seminar will be awarded 6 CPD points.
Tutor David Maggs tells you more -
By successfully completing this course, you will be able:
- To perform and interpret findings from a complete neuro-ophthalmic examination (cranial nerves; responses and reflexes)
- To perform and interpret findings from a complete examination of the anterior segment (eyelids, conjunctiva, sclera, cornea, anterior chamber, iris, and lens)
- To perform and interpret findings from a complete fundic examination (vitreous, choroid, tapetum, retina, and optic nerve)
- To perform and interpret findings from common ophthalmic diagnostic tests (aqueous flare, Schirmer tear test, fluorescein stain, tearfilm breakup time, nasolacrimal flush, rebound and applanation tonometry)
- To learn and practice surgical techniques for correction of entropion, ectropion, “cherry eye”, and indolent ulcers; eyelid tumor removal, and enucleation
