About the course

NOV 2017 09:00 - 18:00

The aim of the course is to provide a solid grounding in equine ophthalmology. The emphasis of the day is the practical use of instrumentation to obtain good clinical information and to provide treatment strategies for the commonly encountered equine ophthalmic conditions. An informal approach is encouraged with time scheduled for case discussion and practical sessions covering ocular ultrasound and indirect ophthalmoscopy. Aimed at all equine practitioner’s who wish to refresh their ophthalmic examination skills, this day course would be of particular use to new graduates.
