Specsavers has partnered with ophthalmologist and Associate Professor Colin Chan, to deliver a series of professional development webinars this May.

The program, which will run weekly between May 6-25, will cover several key topics including infectious keratitis, non-infections keratitis, ocular allergy, and corneal dystrophy.

The webinars will be hosted using Zoom to enable interactive discussion with Dr Chan throughout the session. The series will also be available through Specsavers’ MyCPD portal.

Dr Chan, who has volunteered his time pro bono to run the series, is an internationally recognised expert in vision correction procedures, including laser eye surgery, refractive lens exchange and laser cataract surgery. He has more than 18 years’ experience as an eye surgeon, and specialises in the treatment of corneal conditions, with a focus on keratoconus and pterygium. He has expertise in techniques such as corneal ring implants (Intacs and Kerarings), collagen cross-linking and corneal transplants.

Participants will be eligible to earn CDP points for participating, by attending the event and reviewing the learning outcomes and questions available on the MyCPD portal.
