MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Related Posts Introduce online courses on glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmology for ophthalmologistsThe International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO), in partnership with DocMode, has introduced continuing education (CE) online courses on glaucoma and neuro-ophthalmology for ophthalmologists.The online courses will aid practising ophthalmologists and optometrists in gaining reasonable understanding of the diagnosis of primary open angle glaucoma and its management.Besides, it will also facilitate competence in neuro-ophthalmic examination, diagnosis and management of common, critical and potentially extreme neuro-ophthalmic conditions amongst the patients.“The e-learning will foster the participant in effectively recognising the normal and abnormal optic discs and characterise the abnormalities, describe diagnostic and management considerations for the most common optic neuropathies and also identify normal and abnormal pupil and be able to characterise pupillary abnormalities. He or she will easily be able to describe the basics of ocular motility examination and identify common ocular motility abnormalities.“In addition, the courses will also allow the participant to describe an approach to a patient who has visual loss or symptoms but has a ‘normal’ examination and finally also describe and identify neuro-ophthalmic manifestation of common systemic diseases,” said Dr Karl Golnik, President, International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO).“It has been estimated that by 2020, there will be approximately 80 million people with glaucoma, an increase of about 20 million since 2010. Primary open angle glaucoma is estimated to affect 6.48 million people. Equally, neuro-ophthalmic conditions have always been a concern, be it in India or elsewhere,” said Prof Dr S Natarajan, President, All India Ophthalmological Society (AIOS).In addition, people with diabetes have increased risk of glaucoma. India is home to 73 million persons living with diabetes of whom 58.4 per cent are unaware that they have diabetes. Population aged >20 years is known to be in the pre-diabetic state.“With the lightening rate of development in the field of medical research and the booming amount of knowledge that this brings with it, learning is a continuous and lifelong process for junior and senior doctors alike. It is heartening to see the introduction of such highly-beneficial online courses for ophthalmologists that would help them to stay updated with recent advances in our science,” informs Prof Dr Natarajan.“My dream project for the next five years is nationwide screening of diabetic retinopathy. I urge ophthalmologists across our country to support “STOP (Screening through Tele Ophthalmology in Prevention) Diabetic Blindness – Jyot Se Jyot Jalao” in improving eye care delivery in rural India,” Prof Dr Natarajan’s further added.“We take pride in our association with ICO for the betterment of healthcare professionals. DocMode hopes that the CE courses for ophthalmologists will help them overcome the challenges in the field without much trouble,” said Paulson Paul, Founder and COO, DocMode.“Glaucoma has a high prevalence in India. Poor patient awareness coupled with factors such as inadequate resident training and cost of medications make glaucoma an extremely dangerous condition with a large potential for causing irreversible visual impairment in millions of patients. By partnering with ICO, we expect that the courses for ophthalmologists will aid them prevail over the challenges related to training,” said Hans Lewis, Founder and CEO, DocMode.In the next 3-4 months, DocMode- ICO partnership will witness a step further through the launch of more courses on subjects like dry eyes, cataract, infectious eye disease, managing posterior capsule rupture: vitrectomy techniques and strategies for the cataract surgeon, refractive surgery for the cataract surgeon: strategies and techniques using multifocal IOLs and also a glaucoma counselling course for counsellors.Participating doctors will have access to both the courses on DocMode, a comprehensive and interactive e-learning platform. Participants would receive a certificate on completion of the course and passing the test of multiple-choice questions (MCQ).The comprehensive course on primary open angle glaucoma is of 8-hour duration with 7 modules and around 12 hours with 6 modules for neuro-ophthalmology course.

NEW DELHI, (Reuters) – Skipper Virat Kohli’s masterly 85 set up India’s successful chase as the hosts pipped West Indies by four wickets in the third and final one-dayer to complete a 2-1 series win today. Chasing 316 for victory, India got off to a strong start but lost Kohli at a crucial juncture before eventually prevailing with eight deliveries to spare at Cuttack’s Barabati Stadium.Earlier, West Indies posted an imposing 315-5 with skipper Kieron Pollard and Nicholas Pooran capitalising on a strong start hitting 10 sixes between them.Indian quicks used the short ball to good effect to restrain openers Evin Lewis and Shai Hope after Kohli won the toss and elected to field. Lewis fell for 21, trying to break free and holing out in the process to Navdeep Saini who made an impressive debut replacing the injured Deepak Chahar.The right-arm quick dismissed Shimron Hetmyer (37) for his maiden ODI wicket and also sent back Roston Chase (38) to reduce West Indies to 144-4 in the 32nd over.Pooran and Pollard then launched a spectacular onslaught, effortlessly clearing the boundary as the tourists plundered 118 off the last 10 overs to breach the 300-mark. Shardul Thakur eventually dismissed Pooran for 89 but Pollard remained not out on 74, smashing seven sixes in his 51-ball blitz.A strong start was imperative to pull off such a big chase and India got the same from KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma who raised 122 runs for the opening stand.Rohit Sharma made a run-a-ball 63 and Rahul scored 77 but the onus was on Kohli and Shreyas Iyer to accomplish the chase once the openers departed. After four successive half-centuries, Iyer fell for seven while Rishabh Pant and Kedar Jadhav also failed with the bat.Kohli appeared to enhance his formidable reputation of anchoring successful chases but his dismissal in the 47th over injected fresh drama into the contest.Thakur smashed Sheldon Cottrell for a six and followed it with a boundary to ease pressure before Ravindra Jadeja, who made 39 not out, scored the winning run.
