JurongHealth Campus' Continuing Medical Education (CME) programme was launched in 2011. Talks within the programme touch on a wide range of topics focused on different areas of patient management, which can be applied to the primary care setting. They are open to general practitioners, doctors working in community hospitals who provide intermediate and long-term care, Allied Health Professionals and nurses. Our CME programme provides a platform for the exchange of ideas on how to integrate care and achieve best possible outcomes for patients. In addition, our speakers will share about services available in JurongHealth Campus to facilitate the referral of patients from the primary care setting.

This lecture will discuss the common subtypes of glaucoma seen in the glaucoma clinic. We will explore the diagnosis and management of these conditions, including the recent development and increasingly popular minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). We will also discuss the typical journey of a patient when they attend the clinic for follow-up and also go through the common questions that patients have about glaucoma.

The lecture will cover a common complaint that patients have – tearing of eyes. Although the most common cause is reflex tearing due to dry eyes, other causes such as blepharitis, allergic eye disease, foreign bodies, nasolacrimal duct obstruction have to be evaluated and excluded. Red flags of constant teary eyes include infective keratitis, corneal ulcers, severe proptosis due to other underlying co-morbidities would also be highlighted during the lecture.
Although dry eyes is commonly treated with over the counter eye drops, we will share some additional tips for the patients to alleviate their symptoms. The step-wise approach for dry eye treatment as per the DEWS protocol would also be summarised and presented. For problems of the tear drainage system, the common surgeries that can be performed will also be discussed.

Sudden painless loss of vision requires immediate attention and appropriate referral and management could help to restore sight and prevent long term visual morbidity. This talk presents the approach to this clinical situation and gives an overview of the possible conditions that one might encounter in practice, together with some of the subsequent management steps for these patients.

This didactic lecture will cover a common complaint that patients have – Eye redness. Although the most common cause is dry eyes, other causes such as blepharitis, allergic eye disease and foreign bodies in the eye have to be evaluated and excluded. Ocular emergencies that can present as red eyes include acute glaucoma, infective keratitis, corneal ulcers and active thyroid eye disease would also be highlighted during the lecture.
Clinical examples would be shared during this session covering the diagnosis as well as up-to-date treatment. Treatment for dry eyes include over the counter eyedrops ; however other conditions may require urgent eye referrals. We hope that this lecture would arm the audience with the confidence to evaluate patients and administer appropriate and timely management.
