Haag-Streit Academy host a successful ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry Course

Harlow, UK – 13th September 2019 – Haag-Streit Academy hosted a successful ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry Course on 10th September 2019. The education event, held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Leeds, was extremely well-received, with excellent feedback from delegates.

The ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry Course provided attendees with expert advice and a detailed overview of how to get the most out of their perimeter. The day included lectures and demonstrations delivered by perimetry specialist Prof. Fiona Rowe, Professor in Orthoptics & Health Services at the University of Liverpool.

Professor Rowe covered topics including; ‘System & test set-up’, ‘Static & kinetic examination’, ‘Test evaluation cluster’ and ‘Polar & trend analysis’. Other members of the faculty delivered a series of talks on the practicalities of using the Haag-Streit Octopus 900, the true successor to the Goldmann perimeter. They shared practical advice on how to use the instrument to achieve superior results in both kinetic and static perimetry.

In addition, delegates participated in hands-on sessions and test simulations facilitated by the Haag-Streit Academy team. The one day programme offered 6 CPD points.

Grant Duncan, HS-UK Clinical Training Manager, said, “We are very pleased with the success of the latest ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry course. The practical workshops always receive excellent feedback and we chose to recruit a smaller group for this course, to ensure delegates could really benefit from the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the state-of-the-art Octopus 900 perimetry system.”

Grant continued, “The smaller group size was a great success and as a result, we will certainly look to host a greater number of smaller, more focussed courses in the future.”
