This dinner workshop will provide an update of the management and treatment of cataract and glaucoma. It will also discuss common eyelid problems and their management.

Both cataract and glaucoma are physical conditions which cause loss of vision. Cataracts are gradual and painless and are manifested by a loss of transparency; glaucoma on the other hand can be either quick and painful or slow and subtle.

Eyelid problems range from benign, self-resolving processes to malignant, possibly metastatic tumours. Fortunately, most eyelid disorders are not vision-threatening or life-threatening; however, many can cause irritative symptoms such as burning, foreign-body sensation or pain.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Outline the latest in detection and treatment of cataract and glaucoma.
  • Discuss common eyelid problems and their management.
  • List a referral pathway in the local region for patients suffering these conditions.

Meet and greet the wide range of visiting specialists from Parke Street Specialist Centre.
