Practical sessions encompassed 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 were available for examination and tutors were present for informed discussions of diagnosis, significance, treatment and prognosis.
