                The course is available from 3 March 2021

                Children’s Eyes: An Introduction
                Healthcare providers/staff who mainly provide services for adults, and only occasionally see children, often do not feel confident to interact with children with eye/vision problems and their families. This course aims to introduce the learner to the basic concepts of paediatric ophthalmology, in order to give them confidence when approaching children.

                The course aims to:

                • support clinicians/clinic staff who wish to develop their skills and build their confidence when working with infants and children
                • support clinicians’ awareness of vision screening programmes, normal/abnormal development of eyes and vision, developmental and acquired eye/vision conditions in children, and the holistic need of the child with sight problems and their family
                • introduce clinicians to common eye conditions in children and to enable them to make appropriate referral decisions for infants and children

                Webinar: Infectious Scleritis

                Infectious Scleritis: Difficulties in Diagnosis and Management, with Dr. Somasheila Murthy

                Sunday, January 31 2021: 09:30 UTC

                Scleritis is a rare but grave inflammatory disorder. Although a majority of these cases are immune mediated, a smaller minority are due to infections of the sclera. The two conditions closely mimic each other, and knowledge of the differences aids in rapid diagnosis. If untreated these cases often have poor outcomes, both due to tissue destruction and also due to propagation of the infection with corticosteroids which may have been started for presumed immune mediated scleritis. In this webinar, we present the clinical features, etiological agents, and the differentiating features between immune and infectious scleritis. We also present diagnostic and management guidelines for managing scleral infection.
