You can join the waiting list when making your session selection.

About the session

Our patients come with a health "baggage" that does not always involve only ocular pathologies. Many of these conditions are stable; however, in certain situations, acute events can occur while they attend a routine optometric examination and, as such, it is the duty of each practitioner to recognise early signs and act appropriately. This session will present some of the most common systemic emergencies that could present in the general optometric practice.
