EyeTeleC has been organised by the NSW AONA committee. Nationally AONA members can phone in and be part of a telephone conference.

These conferences last for approximately one hour. When you register you will be given a conference phone number to call in and join other ophthalmic nurses. The line is initially open where you can hear all participants. The line is then muted and the speaker will present the topic. The line will then be open for all to participate in question time.

The best thing about this is that you can participate from the comfort or your own home or get a group together in one place around one phone.

BACK by popular demand, our guest speaker for the next Eye TeleC event for 2019 on Saturday October 12 @0930-1030 (NSW time), will be Dr Michael Rossiter Thornton who spoke at at our Clinical event in June, Sydney.

Michael will be presenting the topic titled- 'IStents for Management in Glaucoma'

Please register ASAP via email (cherylmelo@bigpond.com) or text (0437898202) or using the AONA NSW contact us on the webpage (www.aonansw.org.au).
