IVI, in association with the Indian Optometry Association (IOA),
organized a pre-conference Workshop on Optometric management of Glaucoma on 5
September 2014 in Agra, as part of the 36th All India Optometry Conference.
Facilitated by Mr Michael Yapp, Chief Optometrist, UNSW, Sydney, this workshop covered topics to enhance practitioner’s ability to differentially diagnose glaucoma through a systematic approach. The workshops incorporated a combination of lectures, case studies and practical sessions including the assessment of narrow angle and secondary glaucoma. Over 50 delegates benefited from the workshop.
Mr Yapp also delivered two key note addresses at the conference on 6 and 7 September 2014, including detecting glaucomatous progression -clinical pearls; and Glaucoma diagnostics and role of optometrists -practice model abroad.
