100% Optical: Seminar highlights

Optician takes a look at key learning opportunities available at 100% Optical

At the Association of Optometrists lounge, a discussion workshop will be held by CooperVision’s head of professional affairs Christina Olner, which explores the most common mistakes that occur when fitting presbyopes with multifocal contact lenses. Three cases will be highlighted to identify preconceptions and oversights by eye care professionals (ECPs) with opportunities for delegate interactions and debate.

Optometrists James Loughman and paediatric ophthalmologist Ian Flitcroft will present updated guidance on myopia management from the College of Optometrists on the main stage. With a focus on a more balanced interpretation of the available evidence, this lecture will explore the core requirements that optometrists must address in order to comply with these College-specific guidelines. It will also consider international recommendations from optical bodies, such as the World Council of Optometry.

On the main stage, Optos chief technology officer Derek Swan will lead a lecture on the future of artificial intelligence (AI) within advanced retinal imaging. As high-quality analysis of retinal data enables a deeper insight into earlier clinical stages, the session aims to delve into how AI can address the obstacles and increasingly provide rapid analytical interpretation of those images. The audience will be guided through considerations, such as the direction of AI in primary and secondary eye care settings; potential barriers; and preparations needed to embrace software and AI solutions in the same way we embraced OCT and ultra-widefield retinal imaging.
