What to expect in this course
In this course, you’ll be guided through 12 lessons, which you can take at your own pace. Each lesson involves a 20-30 minute instructional video, including clinical technique demonstrations where relevant. There is a short text summary after each lesson, and then a reflection question and peer discussion forum option. Multiple-choice questions follow, to test your learning. You’ll also receive infographic summaries and clinical data tables to download and keep as chairside references.
The course starts with the two-system approach to BV assessment and diagnosis. Stepping through understanding of the accommodation and vergence systems, you will cover clinical tests, diagnostic criteria, prescribing and management. Once this foundation is set, you’ll move onto clinical communication and the importance of BV in myopia management. Always with a laser sharp focus on the clinical applications, you’ll get video examples of assessment techniques and chairside infographic summary downloads to reference in practice.
