WEBINAR SERIES DESCRIPTION

Ophthalmology in the horse is progressing rapidly. This in-depth module series will dramatically improve the ophthalmic capabilities of equine veterinarians and veterinary ophthalmologists at all levels of experience by providing knowledge of and insight into the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and treatment options available to speed the healing of simple and complicated eye problems of the horse. Drs. Brooks & Gilger will be sharing invaluable tips and tricks and pearls of wisdom that they have acquired over the decades of experience in equine ophthalmology.

Overview of Individual Modules:

Module 1 – Routine Ophthalmic Diagnostic Techniques of the Horse

BRIAN GILGER  DVM, MS, DACVO, DABT, FARVO

This module includes nerve blocks used for eye examinations in horses; visual assessment methods (dazzle reflex and hand motion); how to use direct ophthalmoscopes and smartphones in eye exams of horses; how to use corneal dyes; how to safely obtain corneal cultures and cytology; interpretation of iridocorneal angle changes in uveitic horses; and Tonopen and Tonovet tonometry. This module is critical to the equine veterinarian at all experience levels, but may be of particular interest to veterinarians experienced with eye problems in horses and veterinary ophthalmologists wanting to attain experience with the horse eye.

Module 2 – Advanced Ophthalmic Diagnostic & Therapeutic Techniques in Horses with Eye Problems

DENNIS BROOKS  DVM, PhD, DACVO

This module includes a discussion of the slit lamp, indirect ophthalmoscope, interpretation and diagnosis of common horse retinal diseases, aqueocentesis, vitreal taps, subconjunctival injections, proper use of serum, plasma and EDTA in horses with eye problems, diamond burr, CXL or collagen cross linking, tissue glues for horse corneal problems, ocular ultrasonography, and OCT. This module is critical to the equine veterinarian at all experience levels, but may be of particular interest to veterinarians experienced with eye problems in horses and veterinary ophthalmologists wanting to attain experience with the horse eye.

Module 3 – How to Diagnose and Manage Superficial Corneal Ulcers in Horses

This module will emphasize how to help the horse with the following types of corneal ulcers: deep, melting, descemetoceles, keratomycosis, ulcers with grooves, and ruptured eyes with iris prolapse. This module is critical to the equine veterinarian at all experience levels, but may be of particular interest to veterinarians experienced with eye problems in horses and veterinary ophthalmologists wanting to attain experience with the horse eye.

Module 5 – How to Diagnose & Manage Nonulcerative Keratitis in Horses
