Specsavers hosts ophthalmologist for May CPD series

Specsavers has partnered with Associate Professor Colin Chan to deliver a series of professional development webinars this month, covering infectious keratitis, non-infections keratitis, ocular allergy and corneal dystrophy, among others.

The program will run weekly between 6–25 May, with the webinars being hosted via Zoom to enable interactive discussion with Chan throughout the sessions.

The series will be available through Specsavers’ MyCPD portal, and is accessible to non-Specsavers eyecare professionals.

Chan, of the Vision Eye Institute, is an internationally recognised expert in vision correction procedures, including laser eye surgery, refractive lens exchange and laser cataract surgery.

He has more than 18 years’ experience as an eye surgeon and specialises in the treatment of corneal conditions, with a focus on keratoconus and pterygium.

He also has expertise in techniques such as corneal ring implants (Intacs and Kerarings), collagen cross-linking and corneal transplants.

Chan’s other roles include Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Canberra (Faculty of Health) and a Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Sydney. He is a director of the Refractive Surgery Degree at the University of Sydney (Save Sight Institute).

According to Specsavers, participants will be eligible to earn CPD points for participating, by attending the event and reviewing the learning outcomes and questions available on the MyCPD portal.
