DOCET offers a great range of video and audio learning for CET across a wide range of topics relevant to everyday optometry. The online learning also includes a fantastic library of past materials with no CET points attached, which may be freely accessed by students, pre-registration optometrists and dispensing opticians.
 
In the same spirit that Marco has invested nearly a half century, striving to advance the EyeCare profession with intelligent and relevant diagnostic solutions and automated process efficiencies, Marco is now privileged to be launching a series of Podcast discussions that will directly address the difficult issues that are both engulfing and shaping our industry. Relevant issues that directly impact the lifeblood of Ophthalmology and Optometry- both separately and entwined, will be engaged a ...

Electronic devices and adapted software are increasingly being sought out by patients with visual impairment. It is becoming more important that optometrists have a good understanding of the technology available so that the best advice is given. To understand the emerging technologies, Dr Michael Crossland explains how the OrCam and the OxSight dev…
 
Last year, it was announced that Optos were teaming up with the company Amydis in developing retinal screening for Alzheimer’s disease. Amydis have developed a technique that allows the visualisation of amyloid build up in the retina. Amyloid is a useful biomarker which is found in increasing amounts as the disease progresses. In this interview, we…
 
Diabetic retinopathy is emerging as a leading cause of preventable blindness globally. The use of artificial intelligence and machine learning is set to revolutionise the way clinicians gather and analyse clinical data. One of the recent trends has been the increasing use of portable systems to gather and transmit clinical data. In this interview w…
 
The eyelids are an essential component of maintaining a healthy tear film and treatment of eyelids is often part of a management strategy for dry eye disease. One long-established technique for dry eye disease treatment involves the use of warm compression, although more recently, controlled abrasion has also been used as part of a management strat…
 
Macular pigments absorb shorter wavelength visible light, act as anti-oxidants and reduce degenerative processes. They may also play a role in vision: specifically contrast sensitivity and glare reduction. Accurate measurement of the pigments is useful clinically as a means of assessing macular protection, especially in those susceptible to degener…
 
The lowering of intraocular pressure (IOP) is the mainstay treatment for primary open angle-glaucoma and slows down further progression of the disease. Many patients present with raised IOP but without optic nerve damage and this is termed ocular hypertension. Many ocular hypertensives convert to glaucoma, and so lowering their IOP helps reduce the…
 
Professor Brendan Barrett looks at the various ways literature reviews are undertaken and then explains how he uses the new Cochrane Risk of Bias tool to understand the robustness of published research into the impact of coloured lenses in influencing reading ability.저자 DOCET
 
Glaucoma diagnosis and referrals have seen great enhancements from the development of referral refinement schemes. We talk to Amanda Harding, principal optometrist at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, to get some clarification on the different referral filtering services in the UK. We also go back to Glasgow to hear from Kathy Morrison about how the S…
 
Next, we focus on specific disease pathways, starting with cataract. We speak again with Clair Bulpin, who provides us with an update on the Gloucester Cataract Direct Referral Scheme (GCDRS). Clair explains recent updates to the scheme as well as future plans. In the second half of this unit, we talk to Clare O’Donnell Head of Eye Science at Opteg…
 
In England, we talk to Peter Turner, Senior Optometrist at Peter Turner’s opticians in Bristol, about the care pathways he’s been developing in his area and how these fit into the wider situation across England. Peter also provides advice on the importance and methods for finding out more about your local schemes.…
 
In this section, unit 4, we return to Northern Ireland to hear from policy makers about what it takes to implement national level programmes. Raymond Curran, Head of Ophthalmic Services, and Margaret McMullan, Clinical Optometric Adviser at the Health and Social Care Board, Northern Ireland, explain to us the planning and preparation that goes into…
 
Since devolution in 1999, parts of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have taken up different approaches to the implementation and funding of eye health schemes. We start our exploration of regional referral protocols in Scotland with Glasgow based optometrist, Craig MacArthur, whose practice is restructured around retention and upskilling optome…
 
As part of his role at Aston, Dr Mark Dunne has supervised several postgraduate projects including the research of Dr John Gurney, Director of Kent Eye Care and author of the paper “Application of naïve Bayesian artificial intelligence to referral refinement of chronic open angle glaucoma”. We meet with John to talk further about the principles of …
 
The evolving area of referrals protocols (discussed in Advances in Eyecare: Referrals 2) has the potential to be transformed greatly by the application of artificial intelligence. Dr Mark Dunne at Aston University has worked on several research projects focused on using AI to enhance efficiency of referrals, with plans for more such projects underw…
 
AI has already shown much promise as a diagnostic tool in other healthcare fields, such as dermatology, in what has been dubbed by some as ‘the fourth world revolution’. Mr Sameer Trikha, a consultant ophthalmologist and founder and Chief Medical Officer at Visulytix Ltd., has worked on the development of several AI based clinical decision support …
 
In 2018, the RCO released new guidelines on screening for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine retinopathy. This was in response to an increase in the use of the drugs, drugs that for a long time have been known to have significant ocular side effects. The new guidelines make specific recommendations on the techniques and timing of baseline and follo…
 
Myopia is a cause of sight loss reaching epidemic proportions around the globe. For most people with low to moderate myopia the main implications are refractive, but for those classed as having high myopia (-6.00DS or more) there is an increased risk of ocular pathology. For these patients, a number of possible interventions have been looked at, in…
 
Acanthamoeba keratitis is a rare eye infection caused by a water-borne microorganism, Acanthamoeba, which infects the cornea. The disease is rare but has a strong association with soft contact lens wear. Since 2011, there has been a threefold increase of the infection in South-East England. In this interview, David Cartwright speaks to Dr Nicole Ca…
