Unsure of what to do when a patient comes in with a gruesome red eye? Getting flustered when a patient presented with new-onset double vision?
Join us in our first hybrid event on Ocular Emergencies with guest speaker Dr. Parth Shah.
In this session, Dr. Shah will aid us in difficult clinical questions and management relating to various ocular emergencies including blunt globe trauma, sudden onset diplopia and vision loss, as well as acute angle closure. With abundant experience in managing complex ocular emergencies in various public hospitals as well as private clinics, this is an event you would not want to miss.
Dr. Shah is an experienced ophthalmologist with a special interest in cataract surgery, strabismus, and paediatric ophthalmology. Dr Shah trained at both the Prince of Wales Hospital and Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick. His goal is to achieve the best possible outcomes for his patients through evidence based practice, cutting-edge technology and a commitment to continuous surgical audit and improvement. He is also passionate about medical education and has been involved in teaching medical students, optometrists, and ophthalmology registrars.
