Linnaeus-owned Veterinary Vision, a leading provider of advanced veterinary ophthalmology services, has hosted its highly anticipated advanced ophthalmology seminar at its state-of-the-art Bamber Bridge clinic. 

The seminar drew in a distinguished gathering of 50 ophthalmologists from referral practices across the UK, providing a platform for the exchange of cutting-edge knowledge and techniques in veterinary ophthalmology. 

It also showcased advanced surgical techniques for managing complex intraocular cases and was hosted by Veterinary Vision clinical directors Chris Dixon and Gary Lewin. 

The morning session focussed on the surgical management of glaucoma, with Chris Dixon presenting statistical analysis and a five-year follow-up of laser cases at Veterinary Vision. 

Mike Rhodes (Focus Referrals), explained the preliminary findings into his study involving a micro-pulsed laser, while Rachel Grundon (Eye Vet Clinic) shared valuable insights from her surgical experience managing glaucoma cases. 

Gary Lewin and Tim Knott (Rowe Referrals) finished the morning session with enlightening lectures on sutured prosthetic intraocular lens surgery, delving into the recent evolution of the technique published by Gary. 

Attendees also had the opportunity to explore Veterinary Vision's new facility through guided tours and could engage with sponsors Prescott’s surgical microscopes, Vision Matrix and Veterinary Specialty Products at their trade stands.

The afternoon saw Chris Dixon giving lectures on complex retinal surgery, complete with videos showcasing successful reattachment in conjunction with lens instability. 

The seminar concluded as Chris and Gary presented the findings of a pre-seminar cataract surgery questionnaire, steering an engaging discussion that highlighted the diverse approaches to phacoemulsification cases. 

Reflecting on the success of the event, which was the third successful seminar hosted by Veterinary Vision, Chris expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to bring together veterinary ophthalmologists, fostering knowledge sharing and providing invaluable insights. 

Chris said: “The event would not have been possible without our hospital director Lisa Holme and the fantastic veterinary nurses and vet team who assisted with data collection for the seminar.” 

Veterinary Vision has a team of 15 ophthalmologists offering a dedicated referral service for cases from across the UK. It has state-of-the-art clinics in Lancashire, Penrith, Sunderland and Glasgow. For more information visit:
