    The course explores the eye from basic anatomy & physiology to an overview of common conditions - chronic and acute and addresses some of the technical diagnostic aspects which are becoming more prevalent in modern ophthalmology. Delegates will also have the chance to take part in interactive simulation to gain an understanding of the psychology of how it feels to be visually challenged.
