The popular Basic and Advanced 'Improving Outcomes' biometry courses are designed to help both beginners and experienced Ophthalmic Consultants get the most from their biometers.
The Basic Course covers 'Improving Outcomes' standard biometry methods, while the second day focuses on more advanced techniques, enabling delegates to attend whichever day is more appropriate for their individual learning requirements.
