Medal Winners - ICO Annual Conference 2019
Dr Clare McCloskey, Ophthalmology SpR at University Hospital Waterford was awarded the Barbara Knox Medal for Best Paper at the Irish College of Ophthalmologists Annual Conference 2019 (15th-17th May, Galway Bay Hotel) for her paper entitled "Audit of Acute Acquired Estropia in Adults with Myopia".
Dr Brian Woods, SHO, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, was awarded the Sir William Wilde Medal for Best Poster at the Irish College of Ophthalmologists Annual Conference 2019 for his paper entitled "A Retinal Rarity". Retinal metastases are exceedingly rare with only a few case reports in the literature and therefore represent a diagnostic challenge. The case highlights the importance of considering malignancy in a non-resolving retinal lesion despite treatment. Data continues to be limited on how to best manage retinal metastases and what role screening has.
