On 22nd November at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Mr Moustafa Issa will be presenting a peer discussion on differential diagnosis of the red eye. This event fulfils the peer review requirement for optometrists and CLOs, and is appoved for 3 interactive CET points each for optometrists (ocular disease, standards of practice), dispensing opticians (ocular abnormalities, standards of practice), and contact lens opticians (contact lenses, standards of practice). 

Following this session, Mr Mike Adams from Stoke Mandeville will be giving a brief update on cataract services. The evening will be sponsored by VISUfarma, and is likely to conclude at around 8.30pm.

 

The above event is now full, so please don't turn up if you haven't booked a place.
