To repeat or not repeat? Confident decision making with visual fields
This is an interactive discussion workshop using real patient cases where visual field interpretation has been needed to make sound clinical decisions. The cases are typical of patients encountered in primary care optometric practice and include conditions affecting different parts of the visual pathway from cornea to cortex.
Common dilemmas will be discussed including deciding on when to repeat, refer or monitor and when to suspect neurological or other pathology.
At our online session you will join a large group for an introduction and then participate in a small, virtual group to review cases. The introduction session will be conducted by Angela and each small group will be facilitated by an experienced facilitator.Please note this event has a limited capacity and is only available to qualified members. This session is a repeat of a session on 9 March. Members do not need to attend both sessions. The workshop has a fee of £20.00.

- To be able to interpret and analyse the results of visual field testing in the context of patients’ overall ocular status and risk profile
- To be able to recognise when a visual field test result could indicate a neurological condition, and manage appropriately
- To be able to decide if and when to repeat a visual test, and avoid both over and under-investigating visual field status
"Excellent session, well-presented and facilitated, enjoyable discussion"
