Retinal Surgery – Today & Beyond: Presented by Dr. Kwon Kang, this will provide insights into the current state of vitreoretinal surgery. Practical considerations for the role of optometrists in managing surgical retinal patients will be discussed and delegates provided with a glimpse of new retinal surgery innovations in the pipeline.

The Long & Winding Road to Better Outcomes in Cataract Surgery: Presented by Dr. Richard Smith, it will take delegates on a walk through the last decade of cataract surgery, examining the problems, shortcomings and complications and discussing the technologies and techniques that are dramatically improving outcomes.

Seeing Beyond the Glare: This is a special focus workshop being presented by Maui Jim’s Rx Training Manager, Dave Burch and will concentrate on the importance of sun wear protection. The focus is on technology available to protect eyes, debunking myth from reality and summarising some of the newest technologies available like colour enhancement and digital surfacing of Rx sunwear.

ODMA is also staging a special retail workshop, “Baking A Business” on Sunday, July 12.
