As part of our mission we have a responsibility to provide innovative products that enhance quality of life by helping people see better. Alcon also extends this responsibility to the way in which we support eye care practitioners and their support teams.


Course structure

The morning comprises two interactive lectures:

All about Astigmatism

A back-to-basics look at astigmatism in all its forms, and how we manage it in practice. We will examine how astigmatism may change and what ocular conditions and pathologies may be associated with it.

Astigmatism and IOLs

This lecture explores what happens when an astigmatic patient presents for cataract (or clear lens extraction) surgery. What are the options available and how successful can we be?

Lunch is provided

The afternoon is formed of a two-part carousel of workshops:

Focusing on Astigmatism

This skills workshop will enable delegates to consider who, when and how they choose to fit toric contact lenses. We will also explore how we assess and measure astigmatism in contact lens fitting.

Curve Ball

This case based discussion workshop allows delegates to explore, through communication and clinical knowledge, how they would assess and manage the various astigmatic patient featured in the cases depending on their individual situations.
