  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Ophthalmology, Occupational Medicine

All doctors see patients of working age on a daily basis, but how many of us stop to consider the impact that our patient’s health problems can have on their ability to work safely and efficiently, or how we could help them to overcome any difficulties that they may be experiencing in the workplace?

This webinar will examine how ophthalmic problems can impact our patient’s fitness to work, focusing on ways we can collaborate with colleagues to help patients with visual impairments to continue working safely and enable them to continue playing an active economic role in society.

Topics include:

  • Update knowledge about current DVLA driving standards
  • Improve knowledge about disability legislation and reasonable adjustments
  • Hear from a patient about her experience of working with a visual impairment
  • Consider adjustments that might be advised on examples of cases seen in practice
