The Eyes Have It! - Ophthalmology Conference
More than just a window to the soul.
Robin Stanley has convened an illuminating ophthalmology conference comprising ophthalmologists and internists. Robin will be joined by David Maggs, Lynelle Johnson, Leah Bradbury, Heather Kaese and Simon Hurn.
Hear more about the conference from Robin Stanley:
Robin and David are known to just about every vet in Australia. Robin is a veterinary specialist who runs a dedicated ophthalmology only practice in Melbourne and David is an ex-pat Aussie who teaches and practices at UC Davis with a main research focus on feline herpetic disease management.
Lynelle, also from Davis, is the foremost expert in disease conditions of the respiratory tract and will focus on infectious and systemic diseases which impact on the eye. Heather will be new to many. She is a double-boarded specialist from Eye Care for Animals in the USA (the largest ophthalmic referral group in the world), who has recently joined Robin in Melbourne. Heather 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! Leah Bradbury, also now based in Melbourne, joins the line-up to share her expertise in anaesthesia and pain assessment.
On the last day of the conference, there will be an additional equine stream, led by Simon Hurn, well known for his 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 focused 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.
