Clinical Talk show
Talk show hosted by Philip and Sarah Morgan, with guests:
Dry eye management (MC)
Fredrik Källmark, CEO at Källmarkskliniken, Sweden
In this masterclass, Frederik Källmark teaches you how to detect dry eyes with the standard equipment you all have in your store or clinic. But also: which advanced equipment is available on the market, for detection and treatment? When do you refer your patient for further treatment? Everything about how to deal with dry eyes in the best way, following the latest insights.
On Viewpoint, Frederik features in an expert conversation on the optometrist’s role in treating dry eyes.
Glaucoma detection and OCT in optometry (MC)
Ben Ashby, Director of Optometry at Specsavers Australia and New Zealand
In this masterclass, Ben Ashby will tell you the story of how Specsavers Australia and New Zealand was the first to start screening eyes using OCT as part of their large-scaled standard eye exams. He’ll present their findings, some of their key learnings, and what it meant for Specsavers in Australia and New Zealand detection rates, referrals and quality outcomes.
From this session, you’ll gain insight into how OCT impacts the clinical journey, learning and development needs in-store, and what the patient outcomes might be.
Vitreous floaters: nuisance or risk? (MC)
Niels Crama, Ophthalmologist, Vitreoretinal Surgeon at Radboudumc, the Netherlands
In this masterclass, Dr Niels Crama will explain how to identify which patients, who have symptoms of vitreous floaters, are at a higher risk for retinal pathology. He’ll give you a clear explanation on the best way to examine, when it’s needed to refer your patients to an ophthalmologist – and when it isn’t needed.
