6.55pm Lecture/workshop

Lecture: A practical guide to the assessment and treatment of ocular surface discomfort by Dr Peter Frampton FCOptom

Overview 

This presentation will discuss what to ask and what to do when examining patients who complain of ocular surface discomfort. A major focus of dry eye assessments is to identify and treat other conditions that present similarly to, or accompany, dry eye.  The association of dry eye with systemic conditions will be highlighted, and the consequent need for management plans that consider the whole person. 

Learning objectives

To understand the purposes and merits of the various tests available to assess the tear film, and choose the appropriate tests for the clinical situation
To appreciate the importance of symptoms in the diagnosis of dry eye and associated ocular/systemic disease, and decisions on whether and how aggressively to manage the condition. Also to understand that similar symptoms may be associated with non-dry eye disease that requires different management
Developing an individualised managment plan that considers the presenting symptoms, causative mechanisms, and patient specific factors.  
Competencies: Ocular Examination, Ocular Disease

Discussion workshop: Addressing the dry eye in the room! by Sarah Long 

With symptoms of eye dryness now reported by up to 80% of patients, knowing how to diagnose and manage these patients is crucial. In this session, practical demonstrations will review how the tear film and anterior ocular structures can be accurately assessed to determine the severity and type of dry eye. Appropriate management options will then be discussed, with your knowledge of ocular lubricants put to the test! Based around patient scenarios, this CET is designed to challenge your current practice protocol for dry eye.
