Centre for Eye Health runs 2 post-graduate courses - 'Advanced diagnosis and management of ocular disease 1 & 2' through the University of New South Wales as part of the Masters of Optometry program. They can also be completed independently of the Masters program.
This course aims to help practitioners refine their diagnostic skills while consolidating, developing and updating their knowledge of ocular disease. The course is primarily distance learning with an optional clinical workshop at CFEH at the conclusion of the course.

Super Saturday will be held next month and the Centre for Eye Health team is hosting a workshop which will run at two different sessions, 12pm and 2.30pm. The event will be held at Luna Park on Saturday 10th March and attendance is worth 6T CPD points.

The workshop is titled 'Diagnostic enigmas and how to solve them' and uses an interactive, problem based approach to focus on improving diagnostic ability through the use of advanced imaging. Participants will work through supervised computer based stations in groups of 5 or less with ‘virtual patients’, accessing clinical data and imaging to diagnose and manage the cases presented. Key learnings and outcomes will be discussed for each case covering a range of clinically relevant anterior and posterior conditions. The workshop will use a team-based problem-solving approach to increase participation, interest and engagement as well as reinforcing the take home messages.

We hope to see you there!

Our Principal Staff Optometrist, Paula Katalinic, presented a talk at the Optometry Australia Canberra Conference Diabetes Primer 2017.

She used her wealth of knowledge in diabetic retinopathy and presented a talk titled 'Diabetic Retinopathy Diagnosis: More Than Just Red Dots on a Photo!' where she provided optometrists with clinical pearls on how to recognise the various lesions of diabetic retinopathy in the consulting room.

Well done, Paula!

Jack Phu, CFEH's senior staff optometrist and PhD candidate, recently attended and spoke at the Optometric Glaucoma Society annual meeting held in Chicago.
Jacks talk was on the importance of spatial summation in visual field testing.

His presentation summarised the major findings of the lab in recent years, which included the establishment of normative visual field sensitivity and spatial summation characteristics across the Humphrey 30-2 test grid.

He uses the data to show that our new stimulus paradigm is able to detect glaucomatous visual field defects up to 4 years earlier compared to standard protocols.

Well done, Jack!

Congratulations to the last rotation of our final year optometry students who all worked very hard to improve their skills in advanced imaging and diagnosis.
During the 6 week rotation the students were exposed to a wide range of disease cases including glaucoma, AMD, diabetic retinopathy to name a few.

Good luck to all on the rest of your studies!

Nine post graduate optometry students from UNSW who are enrolled in "Advanced diagnosis and management of ocular disease 2" attended both the CFEH general clinic and the Glaucoma Management Clinic this month.

This gave them the invaluable opportunity to observe some diagnostically challenging cases as well as learn some of the finer points of glaucoma management by observing our collaborative optometry-ophthalmology team.
