Astigmatism & Contact Lenses VRICS (CET)

C-76925. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Standards of Practice, Contact lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Standards of Practice, Ocular Examination, Contact lenses) and Contact Lens Optician (Communication, Standards of Practice, Ocular Examination, Contact Lenses). This VRICS exercise considers a variety of patient and practitioner practical scenarios that relate to toric lens design and material properties.You will be given one attempt only at the assessment and must pass with a score of ≥60% to earn 1 CET point. 

Astigmatism Outside The Consulting Room (CET)

C-77110. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Ocular Examination, Contact Lenses) and  Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Ocular Examination, Contact Lenses ). Modern soft toric contact lenses have never been easier to fit with 88% of new patients successfully fitted at the first attempt. This course via the use of text and short videos will discuss the impact of eyelid anatomy and lens design characteristics along with how changes can be made to the contact lens specification to help achieve the best visual outcome for the patient. To obtain 1 CET point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will be given 2 attempts at the assessment.  

Binocular Vision (CET)

C-76927. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Assessment of Visual Function, Binocular Vision) and Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Refractive Management, Paediatric Dispensing) only. Bringing the practitioner back to basics in relation to binocular vision (BV) assessment in young children; this course will demonstrate how to correctly perform cover test and motility and how to differentiate between comitant and incomitant deviations, with particular reference to Accommodative Esotropia and Brown’s Syndrome. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Can your patients handle it? (CET)

C-77937. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses) and  Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses ). There are many opportunities to help improve retention among those new to contact lenses. While both vision and comfort are important factors, confidence in lens handling and habit formation play significant roles in new wearers, especially in the first few weeks of wear. This CET session explores the opportunities available to us as practitioners to understand how best to deliver a successful teach for each individual patient and implement simple changes to optimise the environment. To obtain 1 CET point you must complete the modules and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will only have one attempt to pass this assessment.

Choosing The Right Path For Your Presbyopes (CET)

C-77260. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrist (Communication, Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses, Ocular Abnormalities) and Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact lenses). With the amount of lens materials, designs and wearing modalities currently available, many of our presbyopic patients can now be successfully fitted with contact lenses. This course follows a patient interaction, through initial assessment and fitting of different contact lens options, through to final recommendation. Selection of the best contact lens option for the patient's visual demands, lifestyle and ocular health will be discussed.

Comfort by Design (CET)

C-76928. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses). There are many factors that affect the performance of a contact lens on the eye. Material properties such as modulus, wettability, coefficient of friction and oxygen transmission all affect the way the lens behaves on the eye. But which of these properties has the most effect on wearer comfort? This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Comfortable Patients (CET)

C-76929. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses) only. Practitioners are well aware of the importance of comfort in successful contact lens wear. This course will discuss the communication, patient and environmental factors that can impact on this and what the practitioner can do to address them. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Common Systemic Diseases (CET)

C-76930. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for optometrists (Ocular Diseases, Standards of Practice) and dispensing opticians (Ocular Abnormalities, Standards of Practice) only. As Eye Care Practitioners we are taught to take a careful general medical history and note down medication taken by the patient. But how many of us consider the effect of that medication and the condition it is treating on the patient’s general health. In many cases the ECP may be the only health professional that the patient has consulted within a 12 month period. Having a basic understanding of common systemic conditions and their treatment allows ECPs to spot potential problems and refer them to the patient’s GP before they begin to adversely or permanently affect the patient’s health. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Contact Lens Aftercare (CET)

C-74068. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses), Dispensing Opticians (Standards of Practice, Communication, Contact Lenses) and Contact Lens Opticians (Contact Lenses, Communication). Contact lens aftercare provides an opportunity to review the progress in wear of a patient. It allows the practitioner to review the fit of the lens and the health of the eye and to review how well the lenses meet the patient’s expectations and requirements. It is also an ideal opportunity to reinforce important care messages and to make recommendations for new products or upgrades. This course is made up of five modules. Each module takes approximately ten minutes to complete. Please complete all five modules and pass the assessment with a score of ≥ 60% to earn 1 CET point.  You will be given two attempts at the assessment.

Dark Side of the Sun (CET)

C-77893. This course is approved for 1 non-interactive CET point for Optometrists (Communication, Contact Lenses, Ocular Disease), Dispensing Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses, Ocular Abnormalities) and  Contact Lens Opticians (Communication, Contact Lenses, Ocular Examination). Ultraviolet radiation can affect both external and internal ocular structures and may contribute to many ocular pathologies. The damage is cumulative and often irreversible. With longer life spans, the cumulative lifetime dose of UV may be greater than in the past. Evidence suggests that UV radiation may also be of increasing concern due to climate change and ozone depletion. This article explains UV protection measures that practitioners can provide to their patients and why they are important. To obtain 1 CET point you must complete the module and pass the assessment with a score of >60%. You will be given 1 attempt at the assessment.

Ultraviolet radiation can affect both external and internal ocular structures and may contribute to many ocular pathologies. The damage is cumulative and often irreversible. With longer life spans, the cumulative lifetime dose of UV may be greater than in the past. Evidence suggests that UV radiation may also be of increasing concern due to climate change and ozone depletion. This recorded lecture explains UV protection measures that practitioners can provide to their patients and why they are important. To obtain 1 CET point you must watch the whole lecture and pass the assessment with a score of >60%.
