Session description:
The Heidelberg Engineering Academy will once again be supporting the educational programme at 100% Optical with a special OCT LIVE workshop at 12.45pm on Saturday 4th February.
OCT clinical evaluation will be brought to life with OCT LIVE. You will be guided through the patient journey, from scanning the patient live in HD on the big screen to interpreting the images and making a decision on patient management. These interactive, CET accredited sessions challenge the classic case study book format and demonstrate how a multimodal imaging approach can be used in real life to assess a patient´s eye.
The theme is macular disease and we will be following the patient journey, from the beginning (how OCT can be used to spot the early signs) through to the end (how OCT can be used to monitor progression of the disease and referral protocol).

Sunday 5th February
Lecture: MultiColor + OCT: The Interface of Retina and Glaucoma
Location: Main stage, 100% Optical, ExCel Arena, London
Time: 12:00 – 13:00
CET points: 1
Speaker: Professor Sanjay Asrani, Professor of Ophthalmology and Clinical Director of the Duke Eye Centre, North Carolina, USA.
Session description:
Professor Sanjay Asrani will discuss the latest multimodal imaging techniques for the diagnosis and management of glaucoma in optometric practice. He will present a series of cases that show how OCT and fundus imaging techniques can be used to assess eyes for glaucoma and assess eyes which have retinal diseases co-existing with glaucoma. His CET-accredited lecture will be delivered on the main stage and will reflect his position as a leading international glaucoma specialist and American Academy of Ophthalmology Award winner.
