Haag-Streit Academy has announced new Basic Slit Lamp and Slit Lamp Imaging Course dates.

Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard diagnostic and surgical devices and instruments for ophthalmologists, optometrists, and orthoptists, is pleased to announce that Haag-Streit Academy will host a further ‘Slit Lamp Basic Skills Course’ and a ‘Slit Lamp Imaging Course’ on the 9th and 10th of February 2023 at the Haag-Streit Academy Training Facility in Harlow.

The ‘Slit Lamp Basic Skills’ course will include product experts’ advice on how to get the most out of your Haag-Streit slit lamp. Lectures on topics such as ‘history and introduction to the slit lamp,’ ‘the general eye examination,’ and ‘tonometry principles and calibration check’ are included in the course curriculum.

The goal of the ‘Slit Lamp Imaging Course’ is to give attendees a thorough understanding of this highly skilled ophthalmic imaging discipline. Slit lamp imaging specialists will deliver lectures and demonstrations throughout the day. The agenda will include an introduction to the new Imaging Module 910 and the Eyesi slit lamp virtual reality simulator, among other things.

Both courses will include practical, hands-on workshops with live subjects covering topics such as ‘Diffuse, focal, and indirect illumination, as well as retro illumination’ on the ‘Slit Lamp Basics Skills’ course and ‘Image capture and manipulation’ on the ‘Slit Lamp Imaging’ course. Delegates will be able to claim 6.5 CPD points for each day of attendance.

Grahame Wood, HS-UK National Sales Manager, said, “We have been very excited to begin holding Haag-Streit Academy courses again, post-pandemic. These courses have been extremely popular, so we have added these further dates to meet increased demand. Following delegate feedback, a large proportion of our agenda is dedicated to delivering hands-on workshops to enable attendees to benefit from practical training. The Eyesi Slit Lamp simulator has been a fantastic addition to our slit lamp courses, offering advanced learning opportunities for both beginners and more experienced slit lamp users.”

The cost of each course is just £100 + VAT and lunch is included in the price. For further information, please email academy@haag-streit-uk.com or to book your place now, please visit https://hsuk.co/HSacademyevents
