Embracing equipment potential

Haag-Streit UK will host courses at its Harlow offices in May and June

Haag-Streit UK

Equipment company Haag-Streit UK has announced a series of educational courses to help educate practitioners in slit lamp imaging and biometry.

The first course will focus on slit lamp imaging and will be hosted as its head office in Harlow on 3 May.

The one-day course aims to provide delegates with an overview of the technique, with the day featuring lectures and demonstrations that will be delivered by slit lamp imaging specialists.

Topics covered during the day will include the history of the slit lamp and a step-by-step guide to basic eye examination, as well as the various techniques required for anterior imaging.

Further CPD courses will also be held at the company’s head office in June covering biometry. There will be both an introduction course and an advanced course, running on 7 June and 8 June respectively.

Haag-Streit highlighted that the introduction course will cover the anatomy of the human eye and the principles of biometry, while the advanced course will focus on how to analyse biometry data and interpret results. A session on understanding the latest intraocular lens formulas and calculations will also be held, with an opportunity for delegates to discuss case studies.
