On 13th June 2018 at Stoke Mandeville Hospital Dr Mark Weatherall gave us a talk on headaches. This lecture outlined the common causes of headache, ‘red flags’ in history and examination that may point to the presence of a serious neurological disorder, and what advice optometrists and dispensing opticians should accordingly give to patients who present to them with headache. Approved for 1 interactive point each for optometrists (communication, ocular disease) and DOs (communication, ocular abnormalities). Sponsored by BMI.

A copy of the presentation is available for download on the right.

 

On 17th July 2018 at Milton Keynes Hospital, Ms Bina Parmar will deliver a lecture on paediatric ophthalmology. Ms Parmar, who specialises in paediatrics and strabismus, will present a range of ocular conditions which she sees in her paediatric clinic, describing their assessment, management, and urgency of referral. This event is approved for 1 interactive CET point for optometrists (ocular disease, standards of practice, binocular vision) and DOs (ocular abnormalities, standards of practice, paediatric dispensing). Sponsored by BMI.
