205 Ophthalmology Sub-Specialty Series - Carol F. Zimmerman, M.D. Lectureship in Neuro-Ophthalmology" (092317)
The purpose of this program is to provide the most up-to-date information on neuro-ophthalmic problems and educate the medical community in areas of particularly common or difficult neuro-ophthalmic issues so as 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).
This symposium is designed for ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and other physicians and health care providers interested in neuro-ophthalmic disorders, including diagnosis and therapy.
At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to link the educational objectives to Core Competencies (Medical Knowledge and Patient Care) and be able to:
- Recognize symptoms, impact of and treatment options for vestibular migraines
- Identify neurological dysfunction leading to symptoms of Tolosa-Hunt Syndrome
- Examine the complications of visual development related to strabismic alignment
- Evaluate the effects of an image-guided, transnasal, endoscopicresection of orbital lesions
