IVI organised a two-day workshop on Optometric Management of Glaucoma,
Mr Michael Yapp, Chief Staff Optometrist at the Centre for Eye Health, University of South Wales, Sydney.
Incorporating a combination of lectures, case studies and practicals, the workshop enhanced the ability of practitioners to differentially diagnose glaucoma through a systematic approach.
Jointly facilitated by Mr Yapp and Mr Uday Kumar from LV Prasad Eye Institute, a discussion forum conducted as part of the workshop engaged participants in critically analysing the approach to glaucoma from an optometric perspective.
Around 15 Optometry educators and practitioners from across India participated in the workshop held on 9-10 September 2014 at IVI Hyderabad.
IVI acknowledges the support of Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation and Optometry Giving Sight in funding the program.
