The first-ever optical coherence tomography (OCT) webinar day, hosted by OT, saw attendance figures exceed 2500.

The day was designed to support eye care professionals in their clinical knowledge of OCT and widefield retinal imaging.

Held online on 8 October, OCT Day was delivered in partnership with the AOP, and headline sponsored by Specsavers. It was also supported by Optos and Topcon.

OCT Day was made up of four one-hour CPD-accredited lectures. Prior to the day, bookings sold out, reaching their capacity of 1000, for which practitioners can book onto single or multiple sessions.

Recordings from the webinar day can now by watched via the OT website as non-CPD.

Speaking about the day, AOP head of education and OT clinical editor, Dr Ian Beasley, said: “The popularity of the inaugural OCT Day demonstrates the appetite among practitioners to consolidate and expand their knowledge in the field of advanced imaging to optimise clinical outcomes for their patients.”

He confirmed, “the AOP and OT will look to build upon the success of the event for 2024.”

Highlighting the importance of an educational day that provides practitioners with the opportunity to enhance their OCT knowledge and skills, Grant Duncan, Specsavers director of professional development, explained: “The use of OCT across the optometry sector, which has increased massively in the last five years, has been an important development and resulted in a seismic shift in clinical practice.

“Access to this hospital grade equipment can help prevent sight loss and Specsavers is pleased to be playing its part in supporting clinicians using OCT through training and professional development, having rolled out the technology across our practices.”
