7.00pm Lecture by Dr Yvonne Norgett

Paediatric vision testing- which test is best? 

This lecture will outline appropriate choice of visual acuity test for children, with reference to visual crowding, age and interpretation of results, based on expected age norms. Risk factors for amblyopia will be explored with a view to optimising a testing strategy for its early detection. Delegates can thus ensure alignment with current good practice (GOC Standards 5.1 and 7.6).
