From COVID tests to Cover tests – BV confidence boosters for the post-pandemic era

Presented by Simon Frackiewicz MCOptom

About the event

This webinar will give some practical advice for optometrists to help regain confidence in binocular vision, which may have been affected by the altered ways of working during the pandemic.

Particular attention will be given to how/when to prescribe prisms, a revision of some of the common BV tests which can be used in practice, and things to consider when writing a referral letter for patients with BV disorders.

The webinar is aimed optometrists who are a bit rusty on their BV skills and knowledge and looking for a refresher, it will be a reminder of some of the core skills they may have been forgotten. It would also be good for newly qualified or pre-reg optoms.
