Neuro-Ophthalmology News & Events
A $10 million gift has enabled the launch of a center focusing on optic disc drusen, a poorly understood eye disease that can lead to visual impairment or even blindness.
Optic disc drusen (ODD) are calcified deposits found at the anterior optic nerve in about 2% of the general population. It affects both children and adults and can sometimes run in families. It is an important risk factor for optic neuropathy and vision loss. Vision loss in ODD can be progressive or sudden and irreversible, like vision loss in glaucoma and ischemic optic neuropathy, respectively.
During the COVID-19 public health emergency, patient and staff safety concerns have propelled new models of care delivery to the forefront. IT infrastructure implementation has been accelerated and reimbursement broadened. Over 1 week in March, my clinic transitioned from 100% in-person to 90% virtual visits.
