Vision Australia’s vision loss experts will highlight the range of services and strategies available to support patients with low vision or blindness at an exclusive professional development workshop.
Optometry Australia has accredited this free event with 5 CPD points.
Optometrists can learn about and trial the latest in adaptive technology available to support people with vision loss with a tour of Vision Australia’s state-of-the-art Leigh Garwood Mobility Training Centre and its new sensory room, specifically designed to aid in the therapy of people with vision loss.
Optometrists will also have the opportunity to experience Vision Australia’s ‘See like me’ immersive virtual reality, which simulates various eye conditions. This technology was developed to enhance understanding of vision loss and how modifications can greatly impact your patient’s functional vision.
The workshop will take place on Tuesday 30 October, 6:00pm, at Seeing Eye Dogs Australia, 17 Barrett Street, Kensington in Melbourne. Canapes will be provided.
This event is free. Book now as places are limited.
