This one-day, in person short course is ideal for optometrists who want to further their expertise in oral and topical therapeutics and gain practical insights into the contemporary management of keratoconus, myopia, uveitis and glaucoma.
As optometrists play an ever-growing role in the therapeutic management of ocular disease, it is important to consider the appropriate context and use of both topical and oral medications in optometric practice. This comprehensive course has a strong focus on the next frontier of optometry: optometry’s role in oral therapeutics. This session on ocular therapeutics is designed to provide candidates with relevant theory to enhance their patient care together with interactive case study analysis.
