This is the original Primary Eye Care Educational Series started in the 1980s and 90s to provide practitioners with diagnostic and management information on all the general conditions associated with the anterior segment. Some of the drug and treatment plans have varied over the years, but the diagnostic information remains constant and invaluable. When listening to the audio presentations, you will occasionally notice some of these medication changes and should investigate any updated therapies. But, between the diagnostic discussions and the associated clinical photos referenced and displayed (in Additional Course Notes section as pdf file) throughout the audio discussions, you will get a strong grounding and understanding in the basic primary care of most anterior segment disorders. The total series includes 11 hours of COPE CE approved audio discussions with 220 related clinical photos. Good stuff!
