Nicola Peaper, Rodenstock

Will present at the Optometry WA August CPD Evening held at the FJ Clark Building in Nedlands. An optional assessment is available in addition to attendance CPD points and offers a total of 4.5 CPD. Registration is now open & is free to OA Members.

Summary:   Light is essential for vision, colour perception and some aspects of health, however, over the last 5 years the awareness of negative consequences of both artificial light and sunlight has increased. Patients require protection from glare and possible light induced ocular damage whilst maintaining contrast and colour perception. This presentation will discuss and compare current solutions that control light by transmission, reflection and absorption.
