Description
Are you confused by the ever-increasing plethora of artificial tears coming on the market? What are the key characteristics to look for in an effective solution for dry eyes? How do you choose the next step for a patient already using lubricants? If these questions fit with you, this unbiased and interactive session will help you understand more about differences between drops, when to choose particular types of drop according to patient presentation, and how to explain this to your patients. Case studies for discussion will be used to demonstrate key points as well as hands on experience with many types of ocular lubricants.  This session will fulfil the GOC approved CET interactive requirement specified for the BCLA Dry Eye Certificate.

Myopia and myopia management are currently hot topics in the contact lens world. Our parents and patients are increasingly likely to read or hear about myopia management. As ECPs we are the best source of this information and communicating with our patients effectively has become the cornerstone of a good myopia management clinic. In this session we will look at everyday case records from practice and discuss how best to communicate to pre-myopes, the progressing myope and also the myope who has progressed despite being in a myopia management strategy. This session will fulfil the GOC approved CET interactive requirement specified for the BCLA Myopia Management Certificate.
