Description

The Paediatric Vision Day is aimed at paediatricians, emergency medics, optometrists and GPs, who are usually the first port of call for children presenting with eye conditions. Through a series of lectures and interactive workshops, this event is designed to familiarise you with both common and emergency eye conditions, and equip you with the clinical skills to examine children’s vision in the non-ophthalmology setting, and improve confidence in managing and referring these patients. There will also be a global health twist to the day, as we learn from the experiences of our colleagues from Peek Vision and Orbis Flying Eye Hospital.topics include:Understand normal visual development in a child and age-appropriate vision testing Recognise and manage common and emergency paediatric eye conditions Build confidence in ophthalmic consultation and examination skills key speakers:Mr Saurabh Jain, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and the Clinical Director of Services at the Royal Free London NHS Trust in London.
