Interpreting Visual Fields
Examining the visual field is an essential investigative technique used on a daily basis by eye care practitioners. It can provide useful information and help identify ocular pathology such as glaucoma, as well as neurological pathology such as stroke and space occupying lesions.
This e-learning article will cover the various methods of assessing the visual field. The main focus will be on static threshold testing; thought as the gold standard of visual field examination. A step-by-step method of interpreting visual fields will be explored and how to differentiate ocular pathology from neurological pathology using visual field interpretation will be discussed.

A Guide to Incomitant Deviations
Many optometrists are uncomfortable with differentiating and managing incomitant deviations and this article aims improve knowledge and confidence in clinical decision making when presented with these patient cases. The main types of incommitant strabismus are summarised, including what to do when a patient presents with symptoms of various incommitant deviations.
How to Interpret OCT Images: Common Case Histories
This course will discuss the key features of common ocular pathologies to help optometrists make an accurate diagnosis using OCT imaging.
OCT: A guide to differentiating lesions
This article takes a closer look at characteristics of the most common lesions and accompanying ocular conditions seen on OCT scans as well as how to differentially diagnose certain key pathologies in day-to-day practice. Case records will focus on macula pathology and how to diagnose and manage these conditions in practice.
