Staying Connected: Making telemedicine a reality

May 20, 2021

About this event

Women in Vision UK (WVUK) welcome you to join our series of online webinars, seminars, and meetings to share ideas and keep our growing network virtually connected even when we're physically distanced. Join us for the second event in our series 'Staying Connected: Women in Vision UK Seminars'.

It is vital that we look at different ways of delivering healthcare, given the increasing numbers of patients who need to be seen, and this has been further highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 'Making Telemedicine a Reality' will feature presentations discussing telemedicine and its impact in vision research and in the clinic by:

Dawn Sim, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and Director of Telemedicine at the Moorfield’s Digital Laboratory. Dawn's topic will be on An Enabler for Telemedicine and Home-care services in Ophthalmology and the title of her talk will be: "Creating the Department of Digital Medicine".

Tamsin Callaghan, Optometry Lecturer, Researcher and Optometrist at City, University of London. Tamsin's topic will be on Home monitoring of visual fields in glaucoma and the title of her talk will be: "Feasibility of a home-based visual field test (Eyecatcher) for glaucoma home monitoring".
