This day of ophthalmology is for veterinarians wanting to expand their treatment options for emergency ocular cases. The content will be targeted towards veterinarians already familiar with ophthalmic examination and basic diagnostic techniques. During the morning we will review the most commonly encountered ocular emergencies including eyelid disorders, proptosis, infected and non-infected corneal ulceration, uveitis and glaucoma. In the wet-lab we will practice a few surgical techniques for treating eyelid disorders and severe corneal ulceration.
At the end of this workshop delegates should be able to:
- A good understanding of diagnosing, defining and treating infected and non-infected corneal ulceration
- An appreciation of several different eyelid disorders and the treatment options available
- The ability to distinguish between uveitis and glaucoma, and develop appropriate treatment plans
- Practiced several ophthalmic surgical procedures useful to the general practitioner, including; eyelid tacking, eyelid laceration repair, triangle-triangle graft, lateral canthotomy and temporary tarsorraphy (proptosis repair), and 360 degree conjunctival graft
