OCT LIVE: a day in the life of a Birmingham optometrist

OCT clinical evaluation will be brought to life with OCT LIVE. Local Optometrist, Peter Waite, from K.G. Miles Optometrists in Birmingham will introduce you to three patients from his practice. You will be guided through the patient journey, from how multimodal imaging can be used to assess eye disease to interpreting the images and making a decision on patient management. You will see the patient’s scanned live and this session will be capped to no more than 10 people so you will have plenty of time to ask our imaging expert questions in a friendly learning environment.
