Director(s): John Pula MD, FAAN
Description: This is a hands-on mini-lab to convey neuro-ophthalmology and neuro-otology examination skills. The lab consists of stations to address individual components of the exam, including visual acuity (near and Snellen acuity), color vision, fields (confrontation and Amsler grid including techniques to diagnose functional patients), pupils (RAPD and anisocoria), ocular alignment (prism cover, general prism use, red Maddox rod), assessment of pursuits and saccades, nystagmus examination (Frenzel lens), ophthalmoscopy (direct and panoptic ophthalmoscopes), assessment of the vestibular ocular reflex (head thrust and ophthalmoscopy), Hallpike testing, and repositioning treatments. Participants will visit each station for individualized instruction and troubleshooting with an expert on these essential examination skills.
Completion Message: Participants should understand the techniques used in performing the neuro-ophthalmic and neurovestibular exams, including afferent, pupil, efferent, and vestibular components.
