ADONZ 2019 – Final Checking – The Last Word on Quality

The Dispensing Optician has a crucial role to play in the successful dispensing of today’s high-tech prescription lenses, and the final checking and quality control of the products we realease from our practices to our trusting clients is an extremely important part of our dispensing. Throughout the Australian and New Zealand industries the attitude towards and conduct of final checking has been undergoing significant change, and the understanding and application of the national standards appears to have been slipping.

In this presentation James will review current industry practise, outline what industry leaders consider to be best practise, review the current Australian New Zealand Standards for Mounted Spectacle Lenses (AS/NZS ISO 21987:2011), and will apply the standard to several case studies.

ADONZ 2019 – Stroke CVA and Neuro-Care Rehabilitation after Traumatic Brain Injury

A lecture delivered by Saally-Anne Herring giving updated international best practice recommendations for hospital Orthoptists /ophthalmic professionals seeing these patients. This will include TBI that result in acquired visual deficits that benefit from orthoptic interventions. We will review common visual disturbances after stroke, and acquired neurological defects, therapies and diagnostic tests to establish the nature of the visual complaints.

Here in New Zealand there is not easy access to the orthoptist due lack of professional numbers over the country and scarce DHB resources which leads to a more diverse professional involvement with these clients in the community and so increased knowledge of these patients is vital

ADONZ 2019 – The Future of the Optical Industry

This lecture will debate the challenges we face in the wider world of optics with the advent of changing & increasingly automated technology & processes. It will also highlight how eyecare practitioners ensure that the optical sector is better equipped to understand as much as it can where technology, ocular medical developments and demographics are leading to in the years ahead.

With that knowledge it should inform debate as to how the sector can help shape and adapt to the challenges and opportunities.
