The Eyes Have It! - Ophthalmology Conference
More than just a window to the soul.
The CVE has put together an illuminating ophthalmology course. In a conference convened by Robin Stanley there will be five speakers comprising ophthalmologists and internists. David Maggs and Robin Stanley are well known to just about every vet in Australia, David being an ex-pat Aussie who practises at UC Davis, with a main research focus on feline herpetic disease management.
Also from Davis is Lynelle Johnson, the foremost expert in disease conditions of the respiratory tract who will focus on infectious and systemic diseases which impact on the eye, or present first with ophthalmic manifestations. Heather Kaese will be new to many, being a double-boarded specialist from Eye Care for Animals in the USA (the largest ophthalmic referral group in the world), who started out as an internist and subsequently trained in ophthalmology. Heather will bring special expertise in the management of the whole patient, not just their eyes!
On the last day of the conference, there will be an additional equine stream, led by Andrew Turner, well known for his entertaining, knowledgeable and practical approach to treating equine eye problems in general practice.
Such an amazing line up of veterinary specialists will produce a week of learning, with mixed presenting styles to ensure that the audience remains focussed and engaged. Many sessions will have an interactive format with the focus on the best treatment options. The combination of hard core ophthalmology with internal medicine and infectious diseases will provide a balance between the eyes and the rest of the body.
