On 19th April at Stoke Mandeville Hospital we'll be holding our AGM, preceded by the talk 'Filtering Blue Light' presented by Laura Moloney. This talk carries 1 interactive CET point each for optometrists (optical appliances; ocular disease) and dispensing opticians (optical appliances), and is sponsored by Essilor.

 

Blue light is known to induce cumulative damage to the retina and is highlighted as one of the risk factors linked to age related macula degeneration (AMD). This lecture will offer an overview of the general scientific fundamentals, following which it will explain detail of recent scientific evidence that identified a more precise retinal phototoxic spectrum. Once this background is explored the modern day indoor blue light exposure along with info on new AR coatings that filter blue will be discussed.

 

On 6th June at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, we'll have a peer discussion on paediatric cases, CET-accredited for optometrists and dispensing opticians. Details to follow.
