This year’s annual Squint Forum meeting will be split into two parts. We will firstly examine the effects of strabismus and binocular problems in the elderly, including the effect and management of stroke and diplopia post cataract surgery. Afterwards, we will explore the post covid era in depth including the effects on myopia progressions and telemedicine. 

The purpose of this meeting is to update attendees on strabismus and binocular problems in the elderly, and to review changes to our practice in the post covid era. 

Benefits of attending: 
  • Enhance your knowledge about strabismus in the elderly including: The effect and management of stroke, management of diplopia post cataract surgery, management of age-related esotropia and the effect of macular disturbances  

  • Deepen your understanding of new technology post-Covid
