Information to support the learning of eye care professionals
Community Eye Health Journal
Our Community Eye Health Journal is packed with practical information on eye care in countries where the burden of eye disease and blindness is greatest. The journal website also maintains a large collection of links to free and low-cost educational materials on eye care in low-income settings.
Our Community Eye Health Photostream on Flickr has more than 1,700 clinical and practice-based images, all of which are available to download and re-use for teaching and learning purposes. Visit the Community Eye Health Photostream
An ICEH research programme published and distributed more than 16,000 copies of the Trachomatous trichiasis surgery training DVD to African eye care workers in 2013. The DVD has step-by-step teaching videos both bilamellar tarsal rotation (BLTR) and posterior lamellar tarsal rotation (PLTR) procedures. In addition, there is extensive supporting material, such as the assessment and counselling of patients, setting up an operating theatre, sterilising instruments and post-operative care.
