Haag-Streit Academy has announced a series of slit lamp training courses that will be held at the Haag-Streit Academy Training Facility in Harlow on 9 and 10 February 2023.

Grahame Wood, Haag-Streit UK national sales manager, explained that the team had been excited to hold Haag-Streit Academy courses post-pandemic, noting: “These courses have been extremely popular, so we have added these further dates to meet increased demand.”

The ‘Slit Lamp Basic Skills’ course will provide advice from product experts on getting the most from a Haag-Streit slit lamp, the company shared, including: History and introduction to the slit lamp, The general eye examination, and Tonometry principles and calibration check.

The ‘Slit Lamp Imaging Course’ will provide attendees with lectures and demonstrations delivered by slit lamp imaging specialists. The agenda will include an introduction to the new Imaging Module 910, and the Eyesi slit lamp virtual reality simulator.

Both courses include hands-on workshops with live subjects. Delegates will be able to claim 6.5 CPD points for attendance on each day.

Wood explained: “Following delegate feedback, a large proportion of our agenda is dedicated to delivering hands-on workshops to enable attendees to benefit from practical training. The Eyesi Slit Lamp simulator has been a fantastic addition to our slit lamp courses, offering advanced learning opportunities for both beginners and more experienced slit lamp users.”

Places on the two courses can be booked online.
