Orthoptist Helen Kuht receives her book prize


Research orthoptist and Wellcome Trust postdoc fellow Helen Kuht stopped by Stand 24 today to receive her signed book from Dr Sohaib Rufai. Helen is currently working on foveal developmental disorders, as well as the clinical use of artificial intelligence in paediatric ophthalmology - we hope she has time left over for some light reading!


Melanie Corbett and Sinead Connolly talk us through the Inspire programme, and call for contributions.

We had a look at the Eagle Direct SLT from BELKIN Vision showcasing on the Carleton Optical exhibition stand here at RCOphth 2022. An automated treatment for first line treatment of open-angle glaucoma, it utilises an eye tracker and a sophisticated algorithm for a non-contact procedure. Find out more at www.belkin-vision.com.
