Seminar Topics:

Lecture 1:

How to Roll with Entropion

Entropion is commonly encountered in dogs and cats and can be painful in addition to causing corneal scarring, vascularization, and even corneal rupture and loss of vision. There are numerous anatomical and conformational factors that may contribute to entropion in both species. Therefore, the best surgical approach to entropion is to carefully consider such factors and choose a surgical technique accordingly.  This will minimize the chance for recurrence and maximize postoperative success. This surgical discussion will review the anatomical factors that predispose to entropion in dogs and cats, and review the key surgical approaches that can be used for correction in both species.

Lecture 2:

Ocular Oncology Obstacle Course

How worried do I need to be about this eyelid tumor? Can I remove it and what is the best surgical approach? And what about this spot on this cat’s iris? Should I enucleate? A variety of neoplasms, benign and malignant, can affect the periocular and ocular tissues in small animals. Furthermore, identification of those that require conservative or aggressive treatment can be confusing.  This discussion will focus on providing an approach understanding the clinical features and biological behaviors of different periocular and ocular tumors in dogs and cats, as well as the options and techniques for surgical resection if indicated.

Lecture 3:

When It’s Time To Enucleate

Eyes that have been blinded by disease and carry the long-term potential to cause pain in an animal are candidates for enucleation. Before gowning up for surgery, however, it’s important for any practitioner to know the safest surgical technique for removing the diseased eye, and to understand the periocular and orbital anatomy.  Furthermore, awareness of local anesthetic block techniques and other anesthetic considerations will serve to ensure a smooth and uneventful recovery.  This surgical discussion will provide the practitioner with a comprehensive approach to pertinent preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative considerations when performing enucleations, as well as the advantages and disadvantages associated with different surgical techniques.

 Lecture 4:

Top 10 Tips for Doing a Great Ophthalmic Exam 

It is undoubtedly important to know how to treat disease but without a diagnosis, treatment is often ineffective or worse.  Fortunately, reaching an ophthalmic diagnosis relies almost completely on performing a thorough ophthalmic examination, which can be done with the simplest of instrumentation. Indeed, never were the famous words “more is missed through not seeing than not knowing” more apt. Here we present the top 10 tips for the eye exam using equipment that is almost certainly already in your clinic.

Lecture 5:

Cherry Eye Surgery in Dogs 

Surgical correction of cherry eye (prolapse of the gland of the third eyelid) can be one of the most satisfying or frustrating surgeries in general practice. Attention to the smallest of details and a thorough understanding of technique are essential if good results are to be attained.  Using videos of actual surgeries, we will consider patient selection, surgical techniques, and postoperative management for these patients I know you are seeing.
