Would you like to explore the latest on keratoconus and oculoplastics?
From 6pm-7pm, on Wednesday 17 August, ophthalmologists Dr Tanya Trinh and Dr Peter Montgomery will present an update on these key topics for optometrists via a live webinar.
Keratoconus – a Deep Dive
Traditionally, once contact lens options are no longer suitable for keratoconus visual rehabilitation, patients have been considered for intrastromal ring implants or corneal grafting procedures in attempts to regularise their corneal topography.
Increasingly, topography-guided photorefractive keratectomy combined with corneal collagen crosslinking can be an effective option for suitable candidates. In this presentation Dr Tanya Trinh, a specialist in cornea, cataract and refractive surgery at Mosman Eye Centre and George Street Eye Centre, will discuss topography-guided photorefractive keratectomy combined with corneal collagen crosslinking and its benefits, as well as describing suitable candidates for this procedure. As presented at the 2021 AUSCRS meeting, with this technology, 93% of patients met driving vision or better in treated eyes.
An Update on Oculoplastics
Dr Trinh’s presentation will be followed by an update on oculoplastics, presented by Dr Montgomery. He will discuss the different basic types of ectropion and entropion eyelid mal-positions and the anatomical abnormality that causes each of them. Dr Montgomery will then talk about how to repair the mal-position using this anatomical knowledge.
An Update on Keratoconus and Oculoplastics, is free to attend and has been accredited for one hour of CPD by the OA Institute of Excellence Quality Assurance.
Log in details will be provided prior to the event.
