Description

This one day course would benefit doctors working in General A&E and in primary care. Most non-ophthalmologists find examining the eye difficult. This is because the eye is not well covered in the basic medical curriculum. This course will provide the confidence required to face the needs of the eye patient in your practice. It will provide the basic skills required to make an ocular diagnosis with confidence and provide the understanding on how not to miss sight-threatening conditions. To make a working diagnosis in an eye patient does not require lots of fancy ophthalmic equipment. What is required is some basic fundamental understanding on what is important in the patient’s history, how to perform the essential tests to evaluate the function of the eye and when to refer the patient to an ophthalmologist.
