Course Description
Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty that deals with vision loss, double vision, pupil abnormality, and other issues that arise from diseases of the eye-brain pathway.  Common diseases that affect the eye-brain pathway include multiple sclerosis, stroke, tumors, cranial nerve palsies, diplopia, myasthenia, and functional abnormalities.

The course is composed of short lectures followed by practical cases and discussions.  Our focus is on common issues and discussion of diagnostic approach and treatment that are highly relevant to clinical practice.

In this two-day comprehensive course, you will learn basics of the visual pathway, eye movement control, and pupil responses.  Diseases covered include neuro-ophthalmic emergencies, optic neuritis/multiple sclerosis; visual field loss due to stroke, tumor, vascular malformations, and other conditions; diplopia due to cranial nerve 3, 4, and 6 diseases; myasthenia gravis; functional abnormalities; and other important topics.  

You will also learn basics of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and angiography, visual field testing, autofluorescence imaging, and other related technologies.
