New Technology - New Pathology Recorded webinar
A guide to help detect, diagnose and refer retinal pathology with confidence
As optometrists continue to invest in new diagnostic technology such as OCT and ultra-widefield retinal imaging, many of them embark on a natural steep learning curve as they get to grips with new imaging techniques. We understand that even skilled practitioners find new technology daunting and the aim of this webinar is for users to feel confident using these techniques and interpreting the results.
This recorded webinar focuses around the key features of common ocular pathologies to help optometrists make an accurate diagnosis using ultra-widefield and OCT imaging and discusses the diagnosis and management of cases of common ocular disease including:
• Anterior imaging of the angle
• OCT as corneal thickness measurement
• Vitreomacular interface disease
• Macular assessment
• Disc abnormalities
It also examines how to communicate effectively when referring a patient so that the person triaging the referral is able to make the best decision in sending the patient to the most appropriate setting for their consultation.

Technology To Improve Patient Outcomes
Technology in the optical industry is constantly developing. In particular, OCT and ultra-widefield (UWF) are becoming vital tools to help identify retinal pathology. Optometrist Faye McDearmid will discuss why she chose to invest in UWF technology for her practice.
Ultra-Widefield Imaging for Beginners
This lecture will discuss the benefits of looking beyond the posterior pole and will examine why optometrists should screen and document the retinal periphery. Typical abnormalities affecting the retinal periphery will be discussed.

Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging Recorded Webinar
When taking on new clinical diagnostic equipment it can be quite bewildering to view the eye in different ways. Often the new imaging techniques show structures in ways that look so different as to cause confusion. It is imperative that when viewing images the user has at least a basic knowledge of what they are looking at and how to differentiate between the normal and the abnormal whilst arriving at sensible conclusions as to what they are looking at.
