Periocular & corneal surgery, all in one workshop
Some join this workshop for the surgery, some for the social aspects, and others because they want to offer more for ophthalmology cases in practice. Everyone is welcome and no matter what your motivation is, our job is to make your CPD event interesting, practical, and applicable to practice right away.
This course offers a whole weekend where you are surrounded by specialist veterinary ophthalmologists.

What our participants say…
Exceptionally informative in both theory and prac components. Helps get GP vets upto date with new and best practices in many fields – all under the watchful eyes of specialists in their fields.
The workshop has been really useful and applicable to general practice. The lectures were really informative and built on knowledge I already had, and the surgical component introduced new surgeries and helped improve surgeries I’ve done before.
What a fun and education filled weekend! It packed a punch with content and the prac day was so incredibly valuable, I only wish the course ran for a little longer.
Excellent content and practical experience. Always organised and I leave the workshop enthusiastic about skills and knowledge learned and waiting to go back to clinic and apply it all. Also looking forward to sharing my experience with my colleagues.
