COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course was devised for equine practitioners with a good working knowledge in equine ophthalmology and provides an update on recent developments in the field.  The speaker panel consisting of 2 of the most highly respected and experienced equine ophthalmologists worldwide will be discussing the current thinking on pathophysiology of different conditions affecting the equine eye and will cover established and recently developed cutting-edge diagnostic / therapeutic techniques and medications through lectures and in particular via wetlabs.  

In the mornings the following topics will be covered in highly illustrated lectures and case presentations:

  • Recent Developments in Ophthalmic Diagnostics& Therapeutics

  • Equine Uveitis – Understanding a Complex Disease
  • Equine Uveitis – A Rational Approach to Treatment
  • The Posterior Eye & the Prepurchase Examination
  • Ocular Neoplasia – Optimal Approaches to Therapy

In the afternoons7 hours ofpractical sessions will give attendees plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice on live horses and equine specimens and to ask questions in a relaxed atmosphere in small groups (2 – 4 attendees), all under the supervision of the specialists. Plenty of clinical cases will be available which will be examined together with the experts.  Attendees will furthermore be able to choose which diagnostic and therapeutic techniques they would like to have demonstrated and train on equine specimens: 

  • Ophthalmologic & Surgical Procedures – Attendees to choose:  Nerve blocks, lavage system placement, eyelid laceration repair (emergency situations), keratotomy, temporary tarsorrhaphy & enucleation
  • Ocular Ultrasound- live horses
  • Examination of Horses with Eye Problems – live horses

Attendees can furthermore bring challenging or undiagnosed cases to the course, which will be worked up by the attendees under the supervision of the specialists. At the end of Day 1 a vitrectomy demonstration might be given on a clinical case.  

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, extensive electronic course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  On the evening of the first day all attendees are invited to attend the course dinner, which costs 35 € (not included in the registration fee; drinks will be charged extra).
