Event description
Patients commonly present with acute eye symptoms. We will use an interactive format to help you assess, treat and refer patients safely

About this Event

Knowing how to assess, treat and refer patients with acute eye symptoms can be challenging. Often, in primary care this is done without many of the additional investigations and expertise available in secondary care. We aim to deliver a symptoms-based approach to the most common eye presentations, including what not to miss! A great line-up of speakers including Mr VS Maharajan (Cornea Consultant Ophthalmologist) and Mrs Katya Tambe (Consultant Paediatric and Adult Oculoplastic Ophthalmologist)

We will cover red eye, loss of vision, raised pressure and watery eye. For each of these symptoms we will provide you with a consultation plan and pass on clinical pearls to help you manage your patient.

An quivalent of 6 CPD (GPs) points and 7 interactive CET points (optometrists) are available for the day.

This will be ideal for those practitioners looking to deliver a MECS service.

We hope this study day will be hepful for Optometrists, GPs, Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioners and Specialist Orthoptists
