Session 1: Paediatrics made easy

This session will delve into age-appropriate vision testing for children and the techniques used to assess the visual function of paediatric patients. The lecture will also address the normative values for both vision and refractive error, and provide a guide to when it is appropriate to prescribe for children, in particular those under 10 years of age. Finally, delegates will be informed on how to adapt the environment for children, safeguarding and other pearls of wisdom.

Learning outcomes

  • Practitioners will recognise techniques for assessing children's vision and identify normative values for vision and refractive error, and how these guide prescribing decisions
  • Practitioners will recognise safeguarding issues in children.

Please note that you will not be eligible for CPD if you dial into audio only using a phone.
