PRACTICAL/DISCUSSION "TASTER" WORKSHOPS RELATING TO SURVEILLANCE
New for this year will be "Taster Workshops" kindly sponsored by Haag-Streit. These workshops will take place hourly from 10.00 hrs to 12.00hrs on Thursday 27 September and will consist of the following:
1. Slit Lamp ? As with last year this would be based on the practicalities of carrying out a fundus examination using a Volk lens.
2. Wide Field Confocal Imaging ? As we know some surveillance clinics use the Optos or the Heidelberg (Spectralis) in their HES based Surveillance Clinics. This workshop would describe the benefits of a wider field of view and the advantages of confocal imaging in surveillance, particularly for R2 cases. This workshop will be undertaken using an Eidon confocal widefield fundus imaging device.
3. OCT and OCTA ? Focussing on the use of OCT for the detection and management of macular oedema in (early) M1 cases and an introduction to OCTA as a potential tool to monitor non-perfusion in R2 cases
Each conecutive workshop will last 20 minutes (5 minute talk 15 minutes hands-on) with 6 people in each workshop at a time. These would run from 9:00-10:00, 10:00-11:00 and 11:00-12:00. The cost for each workshop is £10.00 per head. Please register for these workshops on the Ticket Page.
