Exploring the world of Pediatric Ophthalmology: Online course for specialists in children's eye health

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the area of ​​pediatric ophthalmology, encountering challenges that require specialized training. In this context, specialized units have been created in many ophthalmology centres with subspecialist ophthalmologists dedicated exclusively to the care of childhood pathologies.

Furthermore, the vital importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of visual problems in children has been confirmed through scientific evidence. Inadequate management of pediatric patients can have irreversible consequences in adulthood, which is why updated training in this area is essential.

In response to this need, Instituto Barraquer presents its online pediatric ophthalmology course, designed to offer complete medical-surgical training by expert ophthalmologists in the different subspecialties, and aimed at all those professionals (general ophthalmologists, resident ophthalmologists, fellows and pediatricians) interested in delving deeper into this specialty and in acquiring tools to facilitate the approach to pediatric patients.

In this 100% online course, pediatric ophthalmology is approached through six thematic blocks:

• Eyelids, orbit and lacrimal system

• Cornea and ocular surface

• Crystalline lens

• Glaucoma

• Retina

• Strabismus

Each of them contains a series of theoretical pills in video format in which the main clinical characteristics of the different childhood eye pathologies are transmitted in a basic way, as well as the examination, diagnosis and therapeutic management techniques, by expert ophthalmologists in the different subspecialties.
