Common Systemic Diseases (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists and dispensing opticians 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)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. 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.

Dry Eye (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. Tear deficiencies are often described under the umbrella term of “dry eye”. 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.

Fundamentals of Presbyopia

This course is accredited for non-interactive CET points for Optometrists and Contact Lens Opticians only. Changing demographics, modern attitudes, more active lifestyles and the fact that many new presbyopes are existing contact lens wearers are all driving growing demand for a spectacle-free solution to presbyopia. This course consists of two modules which covers the fundamentals of presbyopia and reviews the correction options available. They serve to help you appreciate how little patients know about presbyopia and the vision correction options available. This course should take approximately 40-50 minutes to complete. Please complete all modules to obtain 1 CET point, which is available to Optometrists and Contact Lens Opticians only.

Managing Contact Lens Complications (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. Advances in modern contact lens materials and contact lens care solutions means that contact lens wear results in fewer serious contact lens complications than ever before. However, managing complications including discomfort, inflammation, hypoxia and deposition remains a core function of the contact lens practitioner. In this course we will review some of the most common complications and discuss how to manage them. 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.

Managing the Monthly Contact Lens Wearer (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists and contact lens opticians only. Whilst monthly contact lens wear in the UK is in decline, some patients will still prefer this option, whether from a financial or habitual point of view. Recent research shows that a significant proportion of current monthly wearers experience declining performance over the month, which presents a risk for drop out of contact lens wear. This online leaning module will review the science behind why monthly wearers may experience this decline in performance and what can be done to prevent it. This course is made up of six modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all six modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point. The assessment is spread throughout the modules.

Ocular Health (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists and dispensing opticians only. There are many factors involved in healthy sight and healthy contact lens wear. In this module we’ll consider the latest evidence behind some of the most important factors affecting ocular health including UV and blue light exposure, smoking, hygiene, nutrition and oxygen. 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.

Professional Conduct (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. The legal and ethical responsibilities of Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians are broad and varied. In this course we take a look at some of those responsibilities including standards of practice, record keeping, confidentiality, referral, emergency care and contact lens prescribing. 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.

RGP Lens Fitting (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lens fitting is often regarded as more complex than soft lens fitting, but in reality, the number of decisions practitioners must make is essentially the same when judging the fit of either lens. This module reviews the basic procedures and techniques required to fit RGP lenses in routine contact lens practice. 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.

Slit-lamp Techniques (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Therapeutic Opticians, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. The use of the slit-lamp biomicroscope is commonplace during a routine eye examination and contact lens fitting or aftercare. However, without regular use, many of the skills required to use the instrument proficiently can be lost. The aim of this course is to help practitioners develop good slit-lamp technique, concentrating on the practical application in routine eye examinations. This course is made up of five modules. 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.

Soft Contact Lens Fitting (CET)

This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians. With the armoury of lens materials, designs and wearing modalities currently available to practitioners, many of our patients can now be fitted successfully with soft contact lenses.  This course will discuss the communication techniques required along with the principles of initial ocular examination and how the lens behaviour on the eye is used to determine the fit of the lens. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately seven to eight 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.
