The Docmode is pleased to announce the new virtual course: Neuro-Ophthalmology Essentials.
The program is intended to promote competence in the assessment, treatment and management of certain neuro-ophthalmic conditions.
Patients with neuro-ophthalmic conditions are often encountered by eye care providers. These conditions can lead to permanent loss of vision and even death. It is important to be familiar with these conditions and know how these potentially devastating complications can be identified, diagnosed and treated.
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.
Designed to facilitate competence in the neuro-ophthalmic examination, diagnosis and management of common neuro-ophthalmic conditions.
The course, taught by instructors Drs. Karl Golnik and Ama Sadaka, is available to begin at any time.
