The aim of this course is to provide expert tuition in numerous aspects of equine ophthalmology through informative lectures and a large practical component. An interactive session is included, which will allow discussion of a variety of ophthalmologic lesions with the tutors. Practical sessions will encompass techniques in examination of the eye and adjacent structures, including opportunities to perform slit-lamp biomicroscopy, indirect and direct ophthalmoscopy and ultrasonographic examination of the equine orbit. Horses with various identifiable ocular lesions will be available for examination and tutors will be present for informed discussions of diagnosis, significance, treatment and prognosis. A wet lab will be available for application of techniques of eyelid laceration repair, placement of indwelling treatment devices, ocular anatomy and ultrasonography.
