Dr Vicky Lu would like to invite you to attend our accredited educational dinner event on Wednesday 8 August at Castlecrag.
We are committed to providing high quality learning experiences that benefit our local GP community. This event will focus on five speciality areas — ophthalmology, radiology, rheumatology, endocrinology and cardiology.
It is approved by RACGP as listed:
We are proud to announce our new fundus fluorescein angiogram available at our clinic. This allows us to provide full scope care for medical retina patients, including the treatment of AMD, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vascular occlusions. Optos produces ultra wide-field images with a field of view up to 200 degrees, compared to standard angiogram images of around 70 degrees. This enlarged field of view influences the management of conditions that affect the peripheral retina, in particular diabetic retinopathy and vascular occlusions.
Our retinal sub-specialists Dr Andrew Kaines, Dr Dov Hersh and Dr Vicky Lu will take you through interesting and challenging cases, with an emphasis on the diagnostic utility of OCT scanning and ultra-widefield retinal imaging. They will cover both medical and surgical retina cases.
You will have the opportunity at the event to have an Optomap image taken of your own eyes, as we will have an Optos ultra-widefield retinal imaging device on site.
The event will be held at Holy Duck! in Castlecrag. Holy Duck! is the latest creation by Chefs Gallery, the king of modern chinese cuisine. With a nod to the joys of street food, they transform traditional Chinese dishes into modern favourites.
Come and enjoy a true showcase of next-level Chinese BBQ and roasts, with duck at the core of the menu.

To help celebrate the festive season, and to start 2018 on the right note, we are pleased to invite you to the first CPD event for optometrists in Sydney in 2018.
Case Studies: Left Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion
A 40 year old patient presented with sudden onset of painless vision loss from his left eye. There were no associated ocular symptoms and he was systemically well, though moderately over weight.
On examination his corrected acuities were right 6/6 and left 6/90. His intraocular pressures were normal. His anterior segments were unremarkable with clear ocular media and no rubeosis. Dilated fundus examination on the right was essentially unremarkable and on the left there were retinal haemorrhages and cotton-wool spots, along the superotemporal arcade, consistent with a branch retinal vein occlusion. On OCT scanning, he had significant associated macular oedema (see figure 1).
The patient was diagnosed with a left branch retinal vein occlusion. The most common cause underlying cause is atherosclerotic disease, associated with systemic hypertension. However, given this patient was only 40 years of age, obstructive sleep apnoea and pro-coagulant diseases need to be ruled out.
Treatment of intravitreal Lucentis injection therapy was instituted, and four weeks after the first injection his vision returned to 6/9 and his macular oedema dramatically improved, as seen in figure 2 below.
You will be required to complete an online component prior to this event.
