The Basic and Advanced Improving Outcomes Biometry Courses were designed to help both beginners and experienced Ophthalmic Consultants get the most from their biometers. The programme on each day was tailored to fit the needs of those attending, with delegates given the opportunity to pose questions that they wanted covered during the course.

On the Basic day, the focus was on the "how to" aspects of optical biometry and delegates were given an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the Lenstar LS 900. There was also tuition in how to perform accurate immersion ultrasound A-scans using the Ellex Eye Cubed.

On the Advanced day, clinicians were given detailed instruction on how to get the most out of IOL formulae, with a particular focus on the Barrett, Olsen and Hill RBF methods.

The course included lectures on topics such as; ‘Good biometry practice’, ‘TORIC IOL surgery’ and ‘IOL power calculation’. There were also practical, hands-on workshops that supported a range of subjects, including; TORIC IOL planning, editing IOL data, immersion ultrasound and how to perform IOL power calculations. Attendees were able to claim 6 CPD points for each day of the event.

Grant Duncan, HS-UK Clinical Training Manager, said, “At HS-UK we are committed to education and training, and I am delighted that our ‘Improving Outcomes’ Biometry Courses continue to enjoy such success. We have fantastic speakers in David Sculfor and Peter Wilson and it reflects in the wonderful feedback we receive from our delegates. We look forward to having them back for our next ‘Improving Outcomes’ courses on the 7th and 8th June.”
