Ultra-Widefield Imaging for Beginners Recorded Webinar
This lecture will discuss the benefits of looking beyond the posterior pole and will examine why optometrists should screen and document the retinal periphery. Typical abnormalities affecting the retinal periphery will be discussed.
Delegates will hear from a practitioner who uses ultra-widefield retinal imaging in daily optometric practice. The case will be put for examining the peripheral retina as part of a routine eye examination to provide a higher level of patient care.
The lecture will look at how the additional information provided by ultra-widefield influences clinical decision making in a number of example cases. Real case studies of patients with retinal pathology will be presented including both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.
This webinar was part of our Free Webinar Series 2020. Watching the recording and completing the test is worth 1 CPD point.

The webinar and slides include images from different instruments to demonstrate the logical process of the image review. At each stage we will consider differential diagnosis. Including additional diagnostic tests that can be carried out to confirm or rule out potential diagnoses.

Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging Recorded Webinar
When taking on new clinical diagnostic equipment it can be quite bewildering to view the eye in different ways. Often the new imaging techniques show structures in ways that look so different as to cause confusion. It is imperative that when viewing images the user has at least a basic knowledge of what they are looking at and how to differentiate between the normal and the abnormal whilst arriving at sensible conclusions as to what they are looking at.
Technology To Improve Patient Outcomes
Technology in the optical industry is constantly developing. In particular, OCT and ultra-widefield (UWF) are becoming vital tools to help identify retinal pathology. Optometrist Faye McDearmid will discuss why she chose to invest in UWF technology for her practice.
