The mission of the 2019 Neuro-Ophthalmology Subspecialty Day meeting is to provide new, updated, and clinically relevant neuro-ophthalmic information that will assist the practicing ophthalmologist to identify critical findings and to differentiate them from potential distractors in order to make an accurate diagnosis and determine management strategies based on best practices.
The intended audience for this program is comprehensive ophthalmologists.
Beginner, intermediate, and advanced concepts will be discussed to offer sufficient breadth and depth to the target audience.
By the conclusion of this symposium, the attendee will recognize neuro-ophthalmic signs or symptoms, interpret them correctly to arrive at an accurate diagnosis, and be able to determine appropriate initial management based on best practices.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize urgent signs and symptoms in the evaluation of adults with diplopia
- Direct the initial workup of a patient with visual loss from optic neuropathy
- Distinguish the key manifestations of medication-related and infectious neuro-ophthalmic disorders
- Interpret neuro-ophthalmologic diagnostic testing results and identify pitfalls and key findings
