Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Comfortable Patients (CET)

C-61443. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses) only. Practitioners are well aware of the importance of comfort in successful contact lens wear.

Common Systemic Diseases (CET)

C-61516. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists (Ocular Diseases, Standards of Practice) and dispensing opticians (Ocular Abnormalities, Standards of Practice) only. As Eye Care Practitioners we are taught to take a careful general medical history and note down medication taken by the patient. But how many of us consider the effect of that medication and the condition it is treating on the patient’s general health. In many cases the ECP may be the only health professional that the patient has consulted within a 12 month period. Having a basic understanding of common systemic conditions and their treatment allows ECPs to spot potential problems and refer them to the patient’s GP before they begin to adversely or permanently affect the patient’s health. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Contact Lens Aftercare (CET)

C-56331. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Standards of Practice, Communication, Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses, Communication). Contact lens aftercare provides an opportunity to review the progress in wear of a patient. It allows the practitioner to review the fit of the lens and the health of the eye and to review how well the lenses meet the patient’s expectations and requirements. It is also an ideal opportunity to reinforce important care messages and to make recommendations for new products or upgrades. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

This term encompasses a large number of conditions with a wide range of symptoms and varied aetiologies. In this course we will review the causes, the diagnosis and the treatment of a range of dry eye conditions. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

This course will encourage you to consider the impact of dry eye and how it affects our patients lives. It will consider the prevalence of Dry Eye along with the updated definition of this multifactorial disease and will encourage you to consider the presenting signs and symptoms that patients may experience, along with the key investigations required to make a diagnosis and offer advice.
