Ophthalmic Education Evening, Tuesday 26 April 2016

Live patient workshop

You are invited to attend a small group interactive live patient workshop, hosted by Dr Andrew Kaines and Dr Jay Yohendran. You will witness an intravitreal injection being performed. You will also assess a patient who had cataract surgery, combined with ECP, a few hours before the workshop. If you have patients who undergo intravitreal therapy, but you have not seen an injection being performed yourself, you will gain a great deal from this workshop. If you are not confident assessing for anterior chamber cells, this would be a good opportunity to hone your skills.

Discussion will include:

• The benefits of wide-field angiography
• How to perform the injection painlessly
• How to minimise endophthalmitis risk
