Moorfields Optometry Education is a leading provider of intensive clinical courses in optometry related practice, procedures and techniques. Our courses are designed for community and hospital-based clinicians from around the UK and beyond. In recent years, we have hosted a wide range of annual and biennial CET courses, focused on a broad array of specialised and general areas related to clinical optometry. Delivery is through a mix of didactic lectures given by leading Moorfields’ ophthalmic consultants and specialist optometrists. There is a strong emphasis on practical, hands-on experience and peer-to-peer discussion and our courses provide a very high level of optometric education and training.
Moorfields-UCL (University College London) higher qualifications
Moorfields Eye Hospital and The Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London (UCL) are set to be the first partnership to offer a College of Optometrists Higher Qualifications.
Additionally, we provide a robust internal education and training programme for Moorfields’ own pre-registration and resident programme optometrists as well as optometrists who staff multiple sub-specialty clinics throughout the hospital. Educational needs are constantly being met to ensure that the level of practice here remains of the highest possible standard, in line with the level of excellence expected by our patients and the Trust.
Opportunities available to observe in Optometrist-Led Glaucoma clinics. Observers will be able to view a range of mild to moderate glaucoma cases including both open and closed angle glaucoma, observe ophthalmic tecniques such as Goldmann Applanation tonometry and Gonioscopy and interpret disc imaging.
