Your Presenter: Simon Browning
About the webinar:
This webinar is for those optometrists who want to learn more about Optos ultra-widefield (UWF) retinal imaging, whether you are a current Optos user or new to our technology. The webinar will give practitioners a clearer understanding into the diagnostic and business development opportunities of UWF and autofluorescence imaging. Your presenter, Simon Browning is a pioneer in Optos UWF imaging devices and was the very first optometrist globally to install Optos Daytona with autofluorescence function. He is a firm believer that autofluorescence is a “practice game changer, and a life saver, literally”, as early signs of many ocular pathologies and diseases may first present in the periphery and can go undetected using conventional techniques and equipment. UWF technology can image pathology past the vortex vessels, helping practitioners find disease sooner and manage it more effectively.

Given the advent of autofluorescence he has now lectured in a number of countries including the USA and various European countries on the anatomy and physiology of the retina and the way in which optomap systems allow us to deliver the very highest standards of clinical care for our patients. He also considers the further aspects of nutrition and lifestyle with a view to lifelong retinal health maintenance.
