Practical Vision Therapy - Workshop 2 2018

Sat October 27th, 2018 - Sun October 28th, 2018
Where: Melbourne, VIC

Training for Vision Therapists and Optometrists

The Practical Vision Therapy program has been developed to meet the needs of Optometrists and Therapists as they look to diversify and meet the needs of more patients by providing gold-standard office-based vision therapy. The program gives Therapists relevant theory and provides an understanding of the development of vision problems and options for management. This is balanced with a strong practical experience, which focuses on delivering therapy techniques to maximise results.

Please note, that for a comprehensive understanding of the visual process and its treatment with vision therapy all three courses should be undertaken in order from Workshop 1 to Workshop 3.

Can Optometrists do the course?

Absolutely! In fact, we strongly recommend that Optometrists do the course alongside their Therapists for maximum benefit in your Vision Therapy practice. CPD points are available to all Optometrists doing this workshop.  The Practical Vision Therapy curriculum is ideally suited to Optometrists looking to develop their interest in this area. It allows Optometrists to provide tailored solutions to more patients. For those who have an interest in making a real difference to their patient’s quality of life, this is a must-do course. Theory and practical information is balanced to give an understanding of diagnosis, prescribing and delivery of programs. Further reading resources are provided along with procedure write ups for patients to follow at home.
