OWA Interactive CPD Evening 23rd June 2021
Why Can’t My Patient Wear Their New Spectacles.

Optometry Western Australia’s first interactive CPD will be presented by Nicola Peaper of Rodenstock on Wednesday 23rd June 2021.

Venue:  FJ Clark Building, QEII Medical Centre, Nedlands.
Date: Wednesday 23rd June 2021
CPD: Max CPD awarded 2 Interactive (including optional assessment)





Summary: The presentation consists of four typical and frequent cases of non-tolerance to new spectacles and looks at possible cause. The importance of accurate measuring will be discussed particularly in relation to the effect corneal vertex distance, face form angle and pantoscopic tilt have on corridor width and perceived length. An example of compensating a high powered script for corneal vertex distance will be detailed. The final case is on differential prism caused by anisometropia in single vision and progressive  lenses.

Learning Objective: How accurate measurement and positioning of the spectacle lens impacts not only upon clarity of vision but also both ocular and postural comfort.

Zoom:  The CPD evening will be available via Zoom to our regional members and those that cannot travel.  Zoom will require breakout room participation in order to meet the interactive component of the CPD event.

So please keep that in mind if you have a computer / device without access to a microphone.
Those participating at the venue will be in small discussion groups.

Venue:  FJ Clark Building, QEII Medical Centre, Nedlands, WA, 6009.
