New sessions released in the Ophthalmology elearning programme

Posted on: September 30th, 2021 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

Eye-Site is an elearning resource for ophthalmologists and is delivered by the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh).

The elearning programme is intended to complement and support existing teaching initiatives rather than replace them. Eye-Site includes interactive knowledge sessions, for use independently, or by blending elearning content with local, regional or national delivery of skills-focused courses.

Content is mapped to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ curriculum for postgraduate training in Ophthalmology.

What does the elearning programme include?

The most recent update to the Ophthalmology elearning programme is the addition of Eye-Site 19 module on Oculoplastics. The module includes:

  • Ptosis: Assessment and surgical approaches
  • Eyelid lesions and tumours
  • Evisceration, enucleation and exenteration
  • Periocular trauma
  • Lacrimal disorders: The watery eye

The Oculoplastics module is suitable for all ophthalmologists and may be particularly useful for registrars starting an oculoplastics rotation, or oculoplastics fellows wishing to check their core knowledge.

New Eye-Site e-learning session

Posted on: August 1st, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare has worked with The Royal College of Ophthalmologists to develop two new sessions that have been added to the Eye-Site elearning programme.

Eye-Site 13 – Advanced Phacoemulsification

This elearning course is aimed at those surgeons who have completed the intermediate course and are at the stage of taking on more complex cataract challenges. This includes looking at the phacodynamics of modern phaco machines and how that has improved over recent years and how this can be applied to more complex cases. The rest of the module relates to complications management for various stages of the operation and how intra-operative decisions can make a big difference to outcomes. Intraocular lenses (IOL) exchange is also discussed regarding its relationship with the indications for exchange and problems arising from modern IOL design.

Eye-Site 17 – Retinopathy of Prematurity

This course is a competency and revision package for all regular and occasional Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) screeners. It covers four main topics in ROP:

1) Pathogenesis and risk factors for ROP

2) Screening criteria and how to screen for ROP

3) How to grade ROP and when to refer

4) Treatment strategies for ROP.

Within the course there is a link to the interactive American Academy of Ophthalmology ROP case-based training website.
