205 Ophthalmology Sub-Specialty Series - "Carol F. Zimmerman, MD Lectureship" (100519)

Dallas, TX US
October 5, 2019

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:

• Analyze the psychiatric manifestations patients undergo when facing impending blindness
• Discuss how blind patients cope with their diagnosis and disability
• Identify the details of perimetry testing
• Examine how to improve perimetry testing methods
