Dr Antony Clark

Managing Glaucoma Suspects (T)

Summary            Determining if a patient has glaucoma can often be a difficult task in early disease due the inherent variability in optic nerve head morphology. This workshop will use clinical examples to emphasise the importance of clinical assessment and the utility of ancillary tests (OCT and fields) in differentiating true glaucomatous optic neuropathy from other causes of optic nerve pathology. A suggested algorithm for follow-up of glaucoma suspects and when to refer will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review the high-risk features for glaucoma and differentiate these from non-glaucomatous optic nerve changes
  2. Understand the importance of ancillary tests in monitoring for glaucoma suspects for the development of glaucoma
  3. Understand when it is safe to follow-up and when to refer glaucoma suspects

Repeats x 4 from 8.30 – 9.30am / 9.30 – 10.30am / 11.05 – 12.05pm & 12.05 -1.05pm

Assessing Dry Eye – A Practical in-Practice Approach  (T)

Summary: In this workshop the do’s and don’ts of how to identify and classify dry eye disease in a range of practice scenarios will be discussed. Techniques for assessing the tear film and eyelid will be demonstrated, with the opportunity to take a hands-on approach. Different approaches to management will be discussed, enabling optometrists to formulate a treatment plan depending on their clinical findings and treatments available in a variety of practice settings

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the diagnosis methodology of Dry Eye Disease
  2. Understand the relevance of meibomian gland heat and expression in the management of dry eye disease
  3. Understand the TFOSS DEWS II Step 1 approach to the management of Dry Eye Disease

Liz Jackson

The ABC’s of Binocular Vision (non strabismus) for the Busy Optometrist

Summary: Do you feel confident with performing and interpreting binocular vision and accommodation tests? Children and adults regularly present with symptoms of binocular vision and accommodation dysfunction and optometrists are ideally placed to assess, diagnose and manage these issues. This workshop aims to revise and explore the indications for these tests, how to do them and what to do with the results.

Learning Objectives

  1. To revise the symptoms of binocular vision and accommodative dysfunction
  2. To detail the tests of accommodation and vergence that can easily be undertaken by every optometrist
  3. To develop a framework for diagnosis and management
