Can your patients handle it? (CPD)

C-100145. This course is worth 1 non-interactive CPD point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality). There are many opportunities to help improve retention among those new to contact lenses. While both vision and comfort are important factors, confidence in lens handling and habit formation play significant roles in new wearers, especially in the first few weeks of wear. This CPD session explores the opportunities available to us as practitioners to understand how best to deliver a successful teach for each individual patient and implement simple changes to optimise the environment. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.

Dark Side of the Sun (CPD)

C-100144. This course is worth 1 non-interactive CPD point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality). Ultraviolet radiation can affect both external and internal ocular structures and may contribute to many ocular pathologies. The damage is cumulative and often irreversible. With longer life spans, the cumulative lifetime dose of UV may be greater than in the past. Evidence suggests that UV radiation may also be of increasing concern due to climate change and ozone depletion. This article explains UV protection measures that practitioners can provide to their patients and why they are important. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.

Drive Through Dry Eye (CPD)

C-100152. This course is worth 1 non-interactive CPD point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality). Dry eye disease is increasingly common and has become one of the most frequent conditions for patients presenting to primary care. This recorded lecture presented by Sarah Farrant will offer a general overview of the latest DEWS II guidance on dry eye disease, including how to assess and manage it successfully in the primary care setting. Case studies highlighting the different categories of dry eye disease will be presented to show the differing approaches within investigation, diagnosis and effective management of dry eye. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.

Essential Anatomy for Understanding Dry Eye (CPD)

C-100154. This course is worth 1 non-interactive CPD point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality). The TFOS DEWS II Report has made eye care practitioners increasingly aware of the complex and fragile nature of the tear film. This course will consider the anatomy and physiology of the ocular surface and relate it to the current understanding of the structure and function of the tear film.

This course is made up of two sections. Each section takes approximately 30 minutes to complete – a total of 1 hour minimum for both sections. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.

Managing Dry Eye in Everyday Practice (CPD)

C-100251. This course is worth 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality).  Dry eye and tear film disorders commonly present in optometric practice. In many instances early symptoms are often ignored or misinterpreted by patients and/or appropriate management is not provided to these patients. With reference to the TFOS DEWS II Report this course will highlight how to carry out an accurate assessment of the tear film and ocular surface, along with appropriate management options to enable a more successful and earlier intervention to be made within the course of a routine patient examination.

This course is made up of five sections. Each section takes between approximately 10 and 20 minutes to complete. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.

Measuring Total Visual Experience (CPD)

C-100184. This course is worth 1 non-interactive CPD point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality). This distance learning CPD explores the principal that our total visual experience is complex and multifactorial. Measurement of high contrast Snellen visual acuity provides information about just one small element of the total visual experience. Although it is the most commonly quantified metric in a clinical setting, visual acuity actually bears little resemblance to the dynamic range of real-world tasks the visual system encounters. Having this knowledge can aid day to day patient management. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.

This course is worth 1 non-interactive CPD point for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Clinical Practice) & Contact Lens Opticians (Speciality)This distanced based CPD session, delivers a deeper understanding of contact lens dropout and the underlying reasons why patients discontinue which can inform our management strategies for keeping patients, whether new or established, young or presbyopic, in contact lenses. Many strategies and in-practice tools are available that can easily be implemented to encourage retention and leave your patients in long term successful lens wear. To obtain 1 CPD point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment. Upon completion of this course, a certificate will automatically be sent to your registered email.
