OD Fee $40
CE Hours = 1
Over the last decade optometric scope expansion has successfully been achieved in several US states. Some of these expanded skill privileges include ophthalmic laser procedures and minor surgical procedures to remove benign peri-ocular lesions. Benign lesion removal requires injection privileges for local anesthesia and the use of blades or radiofrequency devices to provide comfortable and effective removal. This workshop will provide attendees with hands-on suturing skills using artificial skin models and hands-on radiofrequency experience on a meat model.
