Patients with neurological and neurosurgical disorders, such as brain tumors, aneurysms, infections, inflammations, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia qravis, and stroke may present wrth visual disturbances. lf the correct diagnosis is made, sight can often be saved or double vision eliminated; if not, bilateral blindness, permanent diplopia, or even death may result. This one-day course will use a case-based approach presented by expert faculty to focus on the diagnosis and management of patients with a variety of such "neuro ophthalmologic" disorders. Special emphasis will be placed on presenting symptoms and signs as well as appropriate ancillary tests that can lead the clinician, whether ophthalmologist, optometrist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, or internist, to the correct diagnosis and, from tnere, to the appropriate treatment in a timely fashion. Ample time will be reserved for questions and comments from the audience.
This activity is intended for general ophthalmologists, optometrists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, ophthalmology and neurology residents, ophthalmology and neurology fellows and optometry residents.
