Description

We’ve teamed up with the Local Optical Committee Support Unit in the South East to present a CET event for Optometrists

Join our live webinar to hear Lorcan Butler, Optical Engagement Manager, and Susan Mollan, Ophthalmologist discuss different strategies for the management of Papilloedema. This life-threatening condition needs urgent emergency referral when detected, however there are still a large number of False Positive Referrals being made into Secondary Care.

This lecture style presentation will last approximately 35-40 minutes, followed by a live Q&A session. The presentation will be broken down into 3 main categories

  • Papilloedema
  • Pseudopapilloedema
  • Differential Diagnosis between these two conditions

And will discuss other strategies we can utilise in the management of suspicious elevated Optic Discs.
