So often our visually impaired patients find it difficult to find low vision services within optometry practice.
Our presentations aim to encourage practitioners to manage patients in practice more successfully.
Interactive presentations will cover the essentials of low vision practice from determining magnification, to successfully prescribing the most appropriate low vision devices.
Presentations are illustrated by real patient examples and are followed by hands on practical sessions covering the methods for successfully prescribing low vision devices.
Both presentations are accredited by the GOC for 5&4 Enhanced CET points.
All of our courses are run in collaboration with Jane Macnaughton MCOptom. Jane is the director of Clearview training a UK based independent training course provider for the optical sector. Jane has presented at several CET meetings over the past 20 years. She is the author of the Eye Essentials text, Low Vision Assessment and runs a private Low Vision Service in Leicestershire & Rutland. Jane also works as a specialist optometrist at Leicester's Royal Eye Infirmary.
