NEW PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATES IN LOW VISION AND PAEDIATRIC EYE CARE AVAILABLE FROM 2017 AT ULSTER UNIVERSITY

Ulster University has now been accredited to provide two of the College of Optometrists’ higher qualifications: the Professional Certificate in Low Vision and the Professional Certificate in Paediatric Eye Care.

The Professional Certificate in Paediatric Eye Care provides optometrists with the knowledge to support evidence-based eye care for infants and children of all ages.

The course has been specially designed so that it can be undertaken entirely through distance-learning, thus providing busy practitioners from all over the UK and beyond an opportunity to gain this higher qualification utilising modern web-based learning tools, including online tutorials. 

The Professional Certificate in Low Vision has been developed to provide optometrists with up-to-date knowledge in holistic low vision care and provide a high standard of low vision care in either hospital or community optometry for non-complex cases. 

Both of these new higher qualifications are strongly linked to Ulster University’s Optometry and Vision Science clinical and research expertise. These new Professional Certificates add to the portfolio of College accredited Higher Qualifications in optometry offered by Ulster; the Professional Certificates in Glaucoma and Medical Retina.

For further details about any of these courses, please contact Dr Julie-Anne Little ja.little@ulster.ac.uk
