VetPD Practical Ophthalmology for Equine Practitioners – 2 Days of Lectures & Practical Sessions

09 Oct 2018 08:30 - 10 Oct 2018 17:30

BEVA survey constituted up to 10% of clinical cases seen in practice. In addition, the eye is regularly examined as part of insurance or pre-purchase examinations with the clinician commonly having to make decisions as to the significance of ophthalmic findings. Finally, examination of the eye is an important part of the complete physical and neurological examinations, with the ophthalmic findings often giving a clue as to the underlying disease or problem. The importance of ophthalmology to the clinician undertaking equine work is therefore undeniable and yet most veterinarians received only limited training in this area whilst in vet school or as a young assistant. This practically-oriented course is intended to help equine clinicians learn about the most important and common problems in the equine eye, to gain confidence in how to deal with these conditions and how to interpret their findings. Extra time will be available after lectures for discussion and attendees are encouraged to interact with the speakers in open and frank conversations.
