Colour in the Clinic - The challenges of assessing acquired loss of colour vision

2.00pm

Workshops

Public, Staff, Students, Alumni, Academics

Colour Group (UK) Research Meeting
In association with the UK Neuro-ophthalmology Special Interest Group



This event is being hosted by the Centre of Applied Vision Research, School of Health Sciences, City, University of London

Summary
Research has revealed the importance of visual function testing, including colour vision, in the understanding of disorders affecting the retina, optic nerve and brain. We are also increasing our understanding of the importance of chromaticity in non-image forming visual functions which has implications for photophobia, migraine and light sensitivity. We are planning a workshop style meeting to stimulate discussion on how this increasing knowledge base can be applied in the clinical setting. 

Who may benefit from attending?
Ophthalmologists, medical and psychology students, optometrists, occupational health professionals, artists / painters/ dyers, vision scientists, carotenoids manufacturers, nutritionists, etc.

Meeting arrangements
Refreshments will be provided free of charge during the break, followed by wine and nibbles following the general discussion!

There is no registration fee, but you must register to inform the organisers of your intention to attend. The symposium will be held in the Franklin building. You may wish to check its location before you arrive.
