book iconAbout the Course

Having doubts about your equine eye examination? SPL keeps coming loose? Unsure if there is a cataract or not? We can help!  

Whether or not you have an interest in, or aversion to, ophthalmology, eye problems are a common occurrence in equine practice. The aim of this course is to provide equine practitioners with a solid understanding of the examination of the equine eye as well as some “in the field” ophthalmic procedures. The course will involve both theoretical and practical sessions including two sessions with live horses as well as cadaver material. 

You will improve your ophthalmic examination skills, learn how to get the most out of available equipment and most of all, gain confidence when performing minor surgical procedures. 

RVC Alumni can attend this course at the BEVA member rate, please contact the BEVA Office directly to make your booking.
