GO-Chairside Skills for Laser Procedures
This hands-on workshop will review various facets of assisting an optometric physician with the performance of laser procedures, with a specific focus on YAG capsulotomy and SLT procedures. Many of the principles are applicable to other laser procedures. Stations will include patient education, use of ophthalmic laser lenses, hands-on laser procedures, and post-operative processes. Special attention will be paid to the ways a paraoptometric or technician can assist a doctor in the smooth delivery of these procedures.
