The HS-UK education and training calendar kicks off this month with the first-ever ‘Octopus Perimetry Training Day’. The course is designed to give attendees a detailed overview of the Octopus full-field perimeter and will offer insights into the practicalities and clinical importance of both static and kinetic perimetry.

March sees the return of the ‘Improving Outcomes’ basic and advanced biometry courses. This two day event helps both beginners and more experienced ophthalmic professionals get the most from their biometer. Each day will include practical, hands-on workshops which will support a range of subjects, including; TORIC IOL planning, editing IOL data, immersion ultrasound and IOL power calculators. In response to the on-going popularity of the course, a second ‘Improving Outcomes’ course is also planned in June 2018.

Haag-Streit UK will be exhibiting at Optrafair 2018 in April. Product Manager, Sam Laidlaw, and Clinical Education and Training Manager, Grant Duncan, will be running 3 on-stand education workshops; ‘True Colour & Infrared Confocal Wide-field Imaging’, ‘Slit Lamp Masterclass’ and ‘Glaucoma Function & Structure’. Each has been awarded 2 CET points for attendees.

The highly regarded ‘HS-UK Slit Lamp Imaging Course’ will also take place in Q2 2018. The agenda for the event covers a step-by-step guide to basic eye examination, as well as various techniques for anterior imaging.

Finally, the highlight of the year will be the ‘HS-UK 2018 Glaucoma Symposium’. This event is also planned for Q2 2018 and will focus on the latest developments in the management of the condition. Delegates will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on state-of-the-art devices.

Grant Duncan said, “At HS-UK we are committed to education and training, and I am delighted to say that 2018 is already shaping up to be our best year ever. We’ve been very excited about the response to our courses, and we will strive to deliver the most relevant and informative education events within the ophthalmic industry.”
