100% Optical

100% Optical releases second phase of CPD programme

Key topics will include myopia management, artificial intelligence, and optical coherence tomography 

An audience of professionals are engaging in a lecture. Three individuals are in frame, each sat at desks and wearing headphones. They look off to the right and a presentation is reflecting in the glasses of two of the delegates. They all wear smart causal, patterned clothing. More audience members are behind them, but blurred.

A second package of continuing professional development (CPD) workshops and lectures have been added to the educational programme for 100% Optical 2024.

The educational programme will be held over the three days of 100% Optical, taking place 24–26 February, 2024 at ExCeL London.

The programme is being released in three parts throughout autumn and winter, for delegates to view ahead of bookings opening in January.

The Main Stage will see speakers from Moorfields Eye Hospital and City, University of London discussing how visual field testing works, and how it could be improved, in Rethinking perimetry: contemporary concepts and future possibilities.

Barmak Zadeh, medical lead for macular services at Practice Plus Group Ophthalmology, and Charlotte Evans, macular service clinical lead at Practice Plus Group, will provide a Review of common macular diseases, and Dr Jennifer Blackmore, senior manager of chronic disease management professional education for Zeiss, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, will present the session Work smarter, not harder: integrating diagnostics to enhance glaucoma detection and management.  

The AOP Lounge will host workshops covering myopia management, decision making for contact lens selection, the links between patient lifestyles and ocular surface health, and ultra-widefield imaging.

Myopia management will be a key theme in the Dispensing Workshop, with several workshops and sessions covering this growing topic.

Delegates looking to brush up on the world of optical coherence tomography will benefit from a host of sessions in the Optical Academy, along with talks on orthokeratology, and a lecture by Dr Mehmet Önen, ophthalmologist at Ankara City Hospital, on how artificial intelligence is shaping patient care.

The third phase of the CPD programme will be revealed in December.
