The only UK conference dedicated to Eccentric Viewing for eye and social care professionals is now open for bookings.
This event will highlight why training in Eccentric Viewing (EV) and Steady Eye (SE) should be considered for individuals with central vision loss as a component part of good holistic low vision and rehabilitation services.
EV and SE techniques help people to make the most of their remaining peripheral vision, meaning daily living activities which were previously difficult or impossible can be made significantly easier.
The conference makes up part of the Macular Disease Society’s Re:vision programme, aiming to increase the independence of people affected by central vision loss by offering training in EV and SE techniques. The latest research and real life stories will be presented.
The Society aims to bring together eyecare and social care professionals, commissioners and those involved with managing, training or representing professionals from across health and social care. There will be an opportunity to discuss the effective use of clinical measures and social outcomes used when evaluating the impact of EV & SE; and how to further build the evidence base and drive service delivery improvements.
The conference will take place on 15 March 2012 at the Aston Conference Centre in Birmingham, with tickets costing £50.
