Commencing with a broad overview, the course topics include the diagnosis and management of abnormal binocular vision, paediatric amblyopia, strabismus, nystagmus, vision therapy, learning related vision problems, myopia control and paediatric ocular disease.

Presented by an accomplished list of leaders in paediatric optometry, this course will broaden optometrists’ scope providing graduates with the confidence to treat paediatric patients presenting with a range of conditions. Local clinical placements in Australia and New Zealand provide participants with invaluable practical experience. The course offers a flexible remote learning structure ideal for rural or remote optometrists and those balancing work and other commitments
