Ophthalmology can be daunting as the equipment and anatomy associated with urgency of the cases can prove to be a barrier to treating the patient and expanding your expertise. The aim of this online course is to give you a thorough grounding in the diagnosis and management of common ocular diseases seen in primary practice. By the end of the course you should have increased your skill level, confidence and knowledge to all ow you to tackle even some of the more complicated cases presenting to you in practice.

Week 1: Ophthalmic Examination and Adnexal disease

 Ophthalmic Examination and Adnexal disease. These sessions will explore how to conduct an Ocular clinical examination using a range of equipment available in clinical practice. Utilising these skills to facilitate a complete adnexal examination to help localise disease and make a treatment plan.

Week 2: Pre-corneal tear film, KCS and corneal disease

This is a common region for ocular disease in practice and warrants a review of diagnostic techniques and localisation of clinical disease so that correct treatment can be instigated at an early stage.

Week 3: Feline Ophthalmology and Rodent/Rabbit Ophthalmology

 Most of our patients are going to be canine but not all. Somebody in the practice needs to help our smaller patients and they can be tricky to diagnose.

Week 4: Brachycephalic disease and corneal surgery

These are common issues in practice and easy to get correct, but easier to get wrong. We will look at some of the typical pitfalls and remedies for these problems.

Week 5: Uveitis and Glaucoma in one session and the Lens in another

 How do we differentiate Nuclear sclerosis form cataract and what are our options for treatment. Is it easy to always differentiate Uveitis from Glaucoma when they commonly come together, tricks and tips on dealing with this conundrum.

Week 6: Basic Ophthalmic surgery, anaesthesia and patient preparation

Routinely in practice more of the case load is becoming surgical and this can present a problem if we do not think about some of the issue that will be coming our way both for the anaesthesia and what surgical technique we should be using. Reviewing the surgical instruments and positioning can make a stressful surgery much more relaxing.
