Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has worked with The Royal College of Ophthalmologists to develop two new sessions that have been added to the Eye-Site e-learning programme.

Eye-Site 13 – Advanced Phacoemulsification

This e-learning course is aimed at those surgeons who have completed the intermediate course and are at the stage of taking on more complex cataract challenges. This includes looking at the phacodynamics of modern phaco machines and how that has improved over recent years and how this can be applied to more complex cases. The rest of the module relates to complications management for various stages of the operation and how intra-operative decisions can make a big difference to outcomes. Intraocular lenses (IOL) exchange is also discussed regarding its relationship with the indications for exchange and problems arising from modern IOL design.

Eye-Site 17 – Retinopathy of Prematurity

This course is a competency and revision package for all regular and occasional Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) screeners. It covers four main topics in ROP:

  • Pathogenesis and risk factors for ROP
  • Screening criteria and how to screen for ROP
  • How to grade ROP and when to refer
  • Treatment strategies for ROP

Within the course there is a link to the interactive American Academy of Ophthalmology ROP case-based training website.
