PersonalEyes Conference coming to Sydney

On Sunday the 5th June 2011 PersonalEYES will be holding the Personal Eyes Annual Conference Event (PEACE) at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel, Sydney. PersonalEYES is a long established laser vision correction group with clinics across Sydney and NSW. The aim is to offer an interesting and informative day of education for optometrists in a number of key areas including:

• Diagnosis of various eye conditions – red eye/emergencies, glaucoma, retinal
• Co-management opportunities – what to look out for, when to refer, follow-ups
• Latest surgical procedures – refractive, cataracts, glaucoma, retinal
• Referring patients – what does it mean to the optometric practice.

The conference will run from 9am-6pm Sunday 5th June with a pre conference dinner on 4th June 2011. The event will attract 21 CPD points.


As primary eye care providers with the choice of ocular therapeutic endorsement it is vital for us as optometrists to be involved in our patients’ management plan

Presenters include ophthalmologists, doctors, optometrists and professionals from PersonalEYES, The University of New South Wales and the Optometry Association of Australia. Clinical optometrist and manager Amira Howari commented “As primary eye care providers with the choice of ocular therapeutic endorsement it is vital for us as optometrists to be involved in our patients’ management plan. As health professionals we need to build a strong network so that we can provide the best level care for our patients and the wider community. When asked what advice would she give to her fellow optometrists Amira suggested “Get to know your local health professionals, be involved with the optometry association and support your local community during the various eye health awareness weeks throughout the year. The best form of satisfaction is when you give back to the community and when you know you have made a positive impact on someone’s life.”
