COURSE SUMMARY

As Eye Care Professionals more and more of your patients are presenting with the signs and/or symptoms of a tear film disorder. With evolving roles in primary care, you as optometrists, independent prescribing optometrists and contact lens opticians are in an excellent position to treat and manage this complex condition for the benefit of your patients. Improving the level of care you provide for these patients is key to a successful contact lens practice and high patient loyalty.
 
This unique and comprehensive programme, developed by the Johnson & Johnson Institute, consists of a two-day course sandwiched between pre - and post - course digital elements that will allow you to use the latest clinical methods and new technologies now available for use in practice to help investigate and manage dry eye symptoms. Restructured and updated, to reflect the Tear Film Ocular Society Dry Eye Workshop II (TFOS DEWS II™) report findings, the programme has been developed in collaboration with experts, including those involved in the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society, to help Eye Care Professionals use a systematic approach to help them confidently manage dry eye patients successfully
