Professor David Gartry HonFCOptom, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital, will present his lecture ‘Femtosecond laser cataract surgery – the latest ‘quantum leap’!’ at Optometry Tomorrow Bitesize, the College of Optometrists’ one day conference at the Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel on Sunday 27 September.
He said: “Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery is the next big step forward in this field, offering patients a safer and more precise surgery. This lecture will help delegates to develop their understanding of this exciting advancement and its application in ophthalmic surgery, while also equipping them with the skills necessary to use this understanding in their interactions with patients.”
As well as this session, the event will bring together some of the most well-received lectures, peer discussions and workshops from the College’s annual conference Optometry Tomorrow 2015, which was held in Brighton in March.
Optometry Tomorrow Bitesize also offers College members the chance to earn up to nine interactive CET points, including peer discussion for both optometrist and therapeutic competencies.
College President, David Parkins said: “We are delighted to once again be offering professionals the opportunity to experience some of the highlights of Optometry Tomorrow, one of the UK’s leading Optometric events. This year’s Bitesize will allow attendees to continue their professional development through lectures, workshops and peer discussions, all on a variety of topics.”
