The Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists will host a series of six, four-hour seminars and workshops on strabismus and amblyopia, in Australia and New Zealand, in November.
Moderated by Dr Robin Lewis OD FCOVD and Dr Paul Harris OD FCOVD FACBO FAAO FNAP from the USA, A New/Old Approach to Strabismus & Amblyopia will deliver a theoretical background for understanding the development of a normalised visual process for a patient who has been diagnosed with strabismus and/or amblyopia.
This innovative course, which has previously been delivered for the British Association of Behavioural Optometrists, also offers practical instruction of vision therapy techniques which integrate with the theory presented. Lens prescribing will be discussed in detail and Dr Lewis will use case histories from his own clinic to illustrate the important principles for effective lens prescribing. With perceived cost of practising vision therapy often a barrier, this seminar will demonstrate the use of common materials to provide uncommonly good therapy. Apart from vectograms and a cheiroscope, no therapy technique will use materials that cost over $100. Many will use materials available at the local hardware or stationery store.
