Paediatrics Workshop

Thank you to all who attended the paediatric workshop on Saturday night (12th May 2018). It was a successful and booked out event at the Mercure Hotel, which held our three speakers: Liz Jackson who is a paediatric and behavioural optometrist, Justine Tucker who is an experienced vision therapist, and Dr Michael Jones, a well known and respected paediatric ophthalmologist.

We were fortunate enough to have Liz Jackson return again to give another talk. As always, Liz's enthusiasm and expertise left us more confident and her tips and tricks are sure to help us better manage our little patients.

Following Liz's presentation was Justine, who demonstrated how we could utilise vision training techniques to patients who experience accommodative or convergence difficulties. Justine had us all engaged with her demonstrations and hands talk.Thank you to the audience volunteers who had their visual systems stretched and pulled!

And last, but not least, Dr Michael Jones who ran through his experiences of examining children and how we could best manage and communicate with both nervous children and their parents or carers. And no, we will not forget his most prized equipment if ever he was stranded on an ophthalmic island – a retinoscope!

With the completion of another successful CPD workshop, we are excited to start planning for our upcoming events in the future! We look forward to seeing you there!
