Dr Simon Barnard to host Lazy Sunday Morning CET

Lectures and workshop to feature in free event on anterior eye diagnosis and management for optometrists, therapeutic optometrists, dispensing opticians and contact lens opticians

Dr Simon Barnard

Current trends in anterior eye diagnosis and management will be discussed at a free ‘Lazy Sunday Morning CET’ event in London next month featuring Dr Simon Barnard.

Dr Barnard is director and chief medical officer at IRISS Medical Technologies, as well as principal optometrist and managing director at Barnard Levit Optometrists, London.

The event on 17 July, from 9.30am–1pm, is open to optometrists, therapeutic optometrists, dispensing opticians and contact lens opticians. Up to five CET points are available.

A summer garden fete for accompanying family members is also being held at the event venue, Stephens House and Gardens, Finchley.

The CET event will feature a lecture on enhancing care in general, paediatric and contact lens practice with fully automated handheld technology. There will also be a lecture on the diagnosis and treatment of posterior and anterior blepharitis.

The lectures will be followed by a workshop on interpreting the data from an automated photo-ophthalmic device, discussing pupil size, eyelid position, visible iris diameter and eye position.

There is no charge for attending the lectures and workshop, however, a £25 returnable deposit will be required to reserve a place because numbers are very limited. The main sponsors of the event are TearScience and Scope Ophthalmics.
