205 Ophthalmology Sub-Specialty Series (100221) " "

October 2, 2021

The purpose of this program is to provide up-to-date information on, and workup and management of, neuro-ophthalmic problems to better prepare the clinician should they encounter a patient with such a problem. It is particularly important for the primary clinician to be aware of these topics since a referral to a neuro-ophthalmic specialist cannot always occur in a timely fashion (due to practitioner scarcity). Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to understand the varying presentations of neurological diseases and the manifestations of related conditions, as well as how to proceed with treatment, diagnostic testing, and when to provide referrals to ophthalmologists.

Target Audience

This live symposium is appropriate for ophthalmologists, primary care physicians, neurologists, optometrists and other health care professionals who would benefit from a discussion on the diagnosis and treatment of ophthalmic medical conditions related to various presentations of neurological diseases.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:

1.Describe the clinical spectrum of SARS CoV-2 infection

2.Elucidate the host factors predicting COVID-19 disease severity

3.Understand ocular diseases caused by infectious agents, other than endophthalmitis

4.Learn the different types of corneal infections

5.Learn the typical causes, signs/symptoms, and treatment/management of endophthalmitis

6.Describe major classes of infectious agents that cause conjunctivitis and the hallmark signs and symptoms of each
