About this Course
Objective of the course: To be able to Diagnose and Treat Neuro-opthal disorders.
Eye care providers will often encounter patients with neuro-ophthalmic conditions. These conditions may result in permanent visual loss and even death. It is essential that one be familiar with these conditions and have knowledge of how to recognize, diagnose and treat these potentially devastating problems.
This course will cover the most common, critical and potentially deadly neuro-ophthalmic maladies that every eye care provider will encounter.
The main topics covered include optic nerve and pupil abnormalities, conditions that affect ocular motility, occult visual loss and neuro-ophthalmic manifestations of selected systemic diseases. Each section will include examination techniques, crucial neuro-ophthalmic signs and symptoms, clinical findings and appropriate management. Numerous videos, clinical photographs and imaging studies are used to illustrate relevant abnormalities.
Quizzes throughout the course will ensure knowledge transfer and ultimately facilitate the participant’s familiarity with a wide variety of neuro-ophthalmic conditions.
