So often our visually impaired patients find it difficult to find low vision services within optical practice.
Our series of interactive presentations and discussion workshops are designed to encourage practitioners to manage our elderly patients more successfully.
Through hands-on discussion workshops, delegates will have the opportunity to review the generic attributes and unique design features of a wide range of low vision devices that may be dispensed at practice level. Devices will include a diverse range of hand and stand magnifiers, spectacle mounted and hands-free solutions. A review of telescopes and digital devices will also be discussed.
Building a low vision practice is accredited by the GOC for 11 interactive enhanced CET points.
Building a low vision practice is delivered by our associate trainer, 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.
