Join us for 4 hours of CE from Dr. Elizabeth Giuliano.


Dr. Giuliano will cover the following topics:


1) Back to basics: a review of the complete equine ophthalmic exam: The purpose of this lecture is to provide an overview of the basic instrumentation, supplies

and diagnostic pharmaceuticals required for a complete ophthalmic exam in the equine patient, to discuss the key components of the “minimum ophthalmic data base” and to provide helpful tips to ensure success in performing the complete ophthalmology exam for horses.


2) Equine acquired corneal disease and treatment strategies:  This lecture will provide an overview of commonly acquired equine corneal disease. The two most commonly encountered acquired corneal diseases affecting horses world-wide are ulcerative keratitis and corneal stromal abscess. The lecture will use case examples to emphasize the clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, and treatment options of these common acquired equine corneal diseases.


3) Standing equine surgical procedures:  This lecture will aim to provide an overview of common equine ophthalmic problems necessitating prompt surgical management.  The most commonly affected structure necessitating surgical intervention to the equine practitioner is the eyelid laceration and periocular masses.  Due to the frequency of eyelid traumatic lacerations, a review of basic eyelid anatomy to aid the practitioner in understanding surgical approach to adnexal disease will be briefly discussed.  Appropriate ocular instrumentation and suture material to ensure optimal wound healing will be discussed.  Using a case-based approach, pre-surgical patient evaluation to ensure appropriate surgical planning, will be emphasized.  Essential ophthalmic principles of appropriate adnexal wound closure will be reviewed to help optimize clinical outcome.


4) How to get the most out of your equine referrals to your board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist: help us to better help you:  Perhaps never before have the current issues of our day (e.g. COVID-19) has communication been so important.  In this final hour of lecture, we will discuss ways in which you can get the most out of your referral phone calls to our specialty service and how to maximize client satisfaction by setting appropriate expectations.  We will discuss how cell phone photography can be a pivotal adjunct to your phone calls and strategies to help you capture the ocular pathology you are concerned about.  Finally, this will be your opportunity to ask any specific case questions not addressed in Dr. Giuliano’s first 3 hours of lecture.
