205 Ophthalmology Sub-Specialty Series - Carol F. Zimmerman, M.D. Lectureship in Neuro-Ophthalmology" (092218)

Dallas, TX US
September 22, 2018

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).

Target Audience

This symposium is designed for ophthalmologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and other physicians and health care providers interested in neuro-ophthalmic disorders, including diagnosis and therapy.

Learning Objectives

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 possible neurologic complications resulting from mitochondrial disorders
• Distinguish effects of hereditary brain disorders on oculomotor function
• Identify associations between Ebola virus and the eye
• Discuss current diagnostic and therapeutic options in treatment of pseudotumor cerebri
