6.55pm Lecture/workshop

Lecture: Dry eye management in community practice: A practical guide by Dr Louise Madden MCOptom Dip Tp (IP)

Overview 

This lecture will discuss the diagnosis and management of dry eye disease, encompassing the latest findings from the Tear Film Ocular Society Dry Eye Workshop II report. It will discuss how to differentially diagnose and manage the different types of dry eye disease using appropriate investigative and diagnostic techniques and how to manage these patients in a community setting. It will allow practitioners to expand and update their present knowledge, providing clinical pearls which can be immediately implemented into day-to-day practice. 

The lecture will cover optometrist and therapeutic optometrist competencies.

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.

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
