Seminar details

This event is for early career optometrists and will provide participants with updates in glaucoma management, key clinical pearls to early detection and management as well as collaborative care. Differences in equipment and impact on clinical findings, what to do with glaucoma suspects, when to refer and when to hold on to will all be discussed.
