Clinical Day programme

Learning Objectives

At the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Compare different methods of imaging ophthalmic structures to detect and manage ophthalmic diseases
  • Assess common artifacts of optic nerve, retinal nerve fibre layer and macular imaging
  • Build on current approaches of managing cataract, glaucoma and retinal conditions using novel imaging modalities including swept-source OCT biometry, OCT angiography, ganglion cell analysis and autofluorescence
  • Discuss the impact of these recent developments could have on their practice

À la fin du programme, les participants pourront

  • Comparer différentes méthodes d'imagerie des structures ophtalmiques pour détecter et gérer les maladies ophtalmiques
  • Évaluer les artefacts courants du nerf optique, de la couche de fibre nerveuse rétinienne et de l'imagerie maculaire
  • S'appuyer sur les approches actuelles de gestion de la cataracte, du glaucome et des maladies rétiniennes en utilisant de nouvelles modalités d'imagerie, y compris la biométrie en OCT à balayage, l'angiographie par OCT, l'analyse des cellules ganglionnaires et l'autofluorescence
  • Discuter de l'impact que ces développements récents pourraient avoir sur leur pratique
