Challenging oculoplastics cases 

This discussion workshop for dispensing opticians, optometrists and therapeutic optometrists considers three oculoplastics cases.

Case one considers a presentation of an enlarging lid lump and its possible treatment, together with the distinguishing features and management of other lid lumps.

In case two, we consider the cause and management of eye irritation following lid surgery to remove a malignant lesion before discussing the risk factors for eyelid malignancy.

In the third case, we consider the management and referral options for a person affected by blepharospasm. Other forms of eyelid and facial spasm are also deliberated in case 3 while communication of patient explanations is also considered throughout the workshop.

Challenging cases in glaucoma

Glaucoma medication and adverse effects are also considered, along with referral decisions, risk stratification and ways that community optometrists can support the wellbeing of people under the care of a secondary glaucoma service.
