January roadshows to focus on retinal imaging

Optos events to feature practice owner Simon Browning, who will explain diagnostic and business development opportunities of ultra-widefield and autofluorescence technology

Simon Browning

Retinal imaging technology company Optos is running five roadshows in January 2016. They will feature a lecture on ultra-widefield retinal imaging, with a particular focus on fundus autofluorescence.

The roadshows will be held in London on 19 January, Bristol (20), Birmingham (21), Manchester (26) and Glasgow (27) with CET points available. Widefield and Peripheral Retinal Imaging.

Optometrist Simon Browning (pictured), who has run his own practice in Bedford for over 30 years and has previously held posts within both the AOP and the College of Optometrists, will present at the events.

The lecture will explore the technology behind current ultra-widefield and autofluorescence retinal imaging techniques. Real patient case studies with retinal pathology will be presented, including both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.

Mr Browning will explain the clinical and practical benefits of ultra-widefield retinal screening and fundus autofluorescence, as well as outline the improved patient care and business development opportunities they bring to the optometric practice.

Mr Browning said: “Ultra-widefield retinal imaging gives the practitioner greater diagnostic capabilities, whilst autofluorescence opens new diagnostic frontiers allowing the practitioner to look at the metabolic functionality, as well as the structure of the retina.
