Custom Eyecare Optometrists always learning

Dust, building works, contact lenses and education!

May was a busy month for our team as we were in the midst of building our new practice in Darby Street. Even with the chaos, our Optometrists managed to find the time to educate themselves and educate others.

At Custom Eyecare we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with advances in technology and the latest information available to our profession. On the same weekend, Jackie headed south to Sydney for the Optometry Australia Super Sunday conference, while Dom and Heidi headed to the sunshine state to attend the Cornea and Contact Lens Society of Australia (CCLSA) Congress in the Gold Coast. Here Heidi had the honour of presenting to esteemed colleagues.

Heidi was invited to give two presentations. The first topic was on the Art of Fitting Multifocal Contact Lenses and how to improve your fitting success by using the latest technology.

The following day she gave a recount of her personal experience working with a local Corneal Eye Surgeon (Ophthalmologist). She presented several case studies which illustrated that co-managing patients requiring specialty contact lenses is in the best interests of our patients.

Working together is something we constantly strive for at Custom Eyecare. We work collaboratively with local GPs, Ophthalmologists and Allied Health practitioners on a daily basis.

Super Sunday is the biggest Optometry Australia NSW conference that is run annually. It is a day jam packed with high quality education. Topics range from retinal disease diagnosis, the latest treatments for macula degeneration and dealing with ocular emergencies.
