Ophthalmology Advanced Surgery of the Cornea, Eyelid and Adnexa Advanced


Diagnostic Examination
A diagnosis is only as good as the information obtained and used to make the diagnosis. The equipment required to perform a complete ophthalmic examination, the order in which tests should be performed and the interpretation of the results will be outlined. This will include all common and routine procedures such as a Schirmer tear test to more involved procedures such as ocular ultrasonography and retinal examintion.

Eyelids, Conjunctiva, Third Eyelid Diseases and Surgery
Diseases of the eyelid and conjunctiva will be presented. This will include entropion, ectropion, neoplasia, trauma, cilia and other common everyday abnormalities. Many of these can be managed routinely in practice without expensive equipment. Diagnosis, surgical correction and instrumentation required will be presented.

Cornea Diseases and Surgery
Ulcerative diseases of the cornea will be discussed. These vary from the superficial indolent to the melting and deep corneal ulcers. Is there a difference in canine vs feline, how to decide on medical vs. surgical management, what topical therapies to choose, when to refer? Diseases of the cornea are often surgical beginning with the simple grid keratotomy/diamond burr for an indolent ulcer and culminating with corneal grafting and transplant procedures. Indications, equipment and surgical techniques for corneal surgery will be presented.

Diseases of the Anterior Segment - Uveitis, Glaucoma and Cataract
These 3 diseases are the most commonly seen intraocular ophthalmic disorders in small animal practice. They are often inter-related and may even be concurrent. It is essential to be able to differentiate between these diseases and also to know when they may indicate a potential systemic disease or when the contralateral eye is at risk for the same disease. Finally, treatment and prognosis will be discussed.

Target Group:

General Small Animal Practitioners

Seminar Objective:

At the end of this course the general practitioner should feel able to better examine, assess and diagnose diseases involving the eyelids, adnexa and anterior segment of the eye. They will understand and be able to choose treatment options, including surgical options and feel comfortable with how to perform most routine corrective surgeries of the eyelids and cornea.
