    Physiology & Pathology - Ocular is one of the modules forming 'Part 1 Assessment' in DOCET's series 'The Ageing Eye' and is designed as a companion piece to 'Physiology & Pathology - Systemic'.

    This programme looks at the effects of ageing on a normal, healthy eye, including aspects of anatomy and visual performance. It also considers the identification, investigation and management of common ocular abnormalities that may be encountered in everyday practice. The programme features interviews with experts in the field and a wide range of clinical images.
