About the event

Alongside changing visual needs, the onset of presbyopia can have psychological as well as practical implications on a patient’s day-to-day life. In this fast-paced, interactive discussion workshop, you will work alongside your peers to discuss and manage five different presbyopic patients. Focussing on the benefits of effective patient-practitioner communication, this session will allow practitioners to reflect on how to manage expectations and to support patients to make informed choices about their changing ocular and lifestyle needs.

Please note this event is also being run on 12 September, 20 September and 27 September 2023. You only need to attend one of these sessions.
