Two days of intensive practical training. This event has run for more than 10 years, three times a year. All aspects of the refraction certificate syllabus will be covered by experienced and qualified tutors in hands on practical sessions, maximum tutor to student ratio 1:4. The mock OSCE exam will involve 8 ten-minute stations, with feedback provided. During the weekend there will be some pre-presbyope patients to practise on.
In line with the current RCO refraction exam format, we will be concentrating on spectacle focimetry and retinoscopy on model eye and real pre-presbyopes. There will be no teaching of subjective refraction.
Six distance learning lectures, with multiple choice questions, should be completed prior to attending. These will be available on-line via the website 1 month in advance.
The cost is £600 per person. Lunch goody bag, with bottled water, provided. Please bring your own drinks and nibbles for during the day. Event times are:
- Saturday 09.30-16.30
