The Orthoptic and Binocular Vision Association will run an online seminar on Monday 6 December.

The event will include three presentations in the morning and two interactive clinical sessions in the afternoon.

Dr David Stidwell will deliver a presentation on ‘Tests and techniques to assess binocular vision in children,’ while Sosena Tang will outline ‘Binocular vision conditions associated with ocular and systemic disease.’

Professor Bruce Evans will deliver a talk titled ‘Orthoptics for the busy optometrist
(investigation & treatment of phoria, tropia, amblyopia).’

Afternoon sessions will involve delegates viewing and discussing video clips of incomitant deviations in a guided tutorial with optometric supervisors.

Applications to take part in the course can be made to honorary secretary of the OBVA, David Stidwill, by email.

The attendance fee for the event is £50 for the morning sessions or £100 for the morning and afternoon.

Places are unlimited for the morning presentations but restricted to 20 participants for the afternoon sessions.
