- The emphasis will be a practical examination technique and will enable the participants to perform the cover test, ocular motility, measure an angle of squint and assess visual function in children with communication difficulties.
- The course will be taught by experienced orthoptists and will include time for questions and discussions
The course does not aim to teach basic Orthoptic principals and we advise all participants to read an Orthoptic textbook before coming to the course. We suggest:
- Clinical Orthoptics by Fiona J.ROWE. Pub Wiley – Blackwell
Where: The Orthoptic Department, Moorfields Eye Hospital, City Road, London, EC1V 2PD
Fee: £300 Non-trainees / £250 trainees (If registering as a trainee an email from your supervisor will be needed to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org)
As this course includes the opportunity to examine a range of patients, numbers are limited. We therefore urge you to apply as early as possible.
