Course Description


Day 2 (Ophthalmology) aims to develop practitioners' diagnostic and therapeutic skills in the investigation and mangement of opthalmic disease in horses. The day will be divided into comprehensive lectures and small group hands-on practical sessions using cadaver specimens supervised by our specialist speakers. 


Some of the lecture based material will be interactive to encourage delegate  participation on a range of topics such as ocular findings at PPE and decision making in difficult and chronic cases such as non-healing corneal ulcers and recurrent uveitis.


The practical sessions in the afternoon will focus on familiarising delegates with key skills such as placement of subpalpebral lavage systems, surgical repair of eyelid lacerations, ophthalmic nerve blocks and ocular ultrasound.
