Kids R Fun! Paediatrics for the busy optometrist

This presentation will discuss the role of optometrists in providing eyecare for children. The aim of the lecture is to to improve the confidence of optometrists in managing paediatric cases whilst stressing the need for practitioners to be aware of their limitations.

Clinical tests that are appropriate for children will be detailed, including their method of use. In addition, common paediatric ocular conditions will also be described, including binocular vision anomalies. The lecture will emphasise the importance of early detection and practical approaches to management that are suitable for community optometric practice.

This presentation was delivered as a CPD approved lecture at the Eyecare conference in Glasgow in January 2018.
