6.55pm Lecture/workshop

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

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. 

Target audience: Optometrist

CET points: 1 interactive point

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 management 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.

Target audience: Optometrist

CET points: 3 interactive points

Learning objectives:

  • To obtain a relevant history and information relating to general health, medication, family history, work, lifestyle and personal requirements.
  • To explain the implications of any dry eye physiological signs, providing the relevant information in a clear and understandable way
  • To appreciate which slit lamp examinations can be employed to examine the tear film quality and quantity, i.e. TBUT, tear meniscus height, observation of debris and assessment of meibomian glands.
  • To appreciate how to use a slit lamp and topographer to assess and record ITBUT, NITBUT, tear meniscus height, lids and lashes assessment and meibography and understands how these findings relate to tear film quantity and quality.
  • To understand how lens design and material properties might affect the interaction between the lens and the ocular surface, and how this might determine lens choice
  • To be able to recognise signs and symptoms of discomfort or dry eye issues that may be affecting their contact lens wear and act accordingly to correct these issues.
  • To be able to recognise and understand how to assess MGD and appreciate the implications that it may have on the tear film and therefore contact lens comfort.
    Competencies: Communication, Ocular Examination, Contact Lenses, Ocular Disease
