Neuro-ophthalmology & P.E.R.F.E.C.T for Pterygium Education Evening

Despite the rain, another successful education evening was held at NQ Eye Specialists Wednesday night for our local Optometrists. Dr Todd Goodwin presented Neuro-ophthalmology – staying out of trouble”, whilst special guest Professor Lawrence Hirst presented on P.E.R.F.E.C.T for PTERYGIUM, a technique he has pioneered over the last 15 years.  Thank you to all those who braved the weather to attend – remember, we’d love to get your feedback on the event and any ideas for future educational sessions.
