C118 - Nystagmus and Saccadic Intrusions Made Simple

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-otology
Director(s): Janet Rucker MD
Description: Accurate identification of abnormal spontaneous eye movements, such as nystagmus and saccadic intrusions, is critical to proper neurological localization and diagnosis. The focus of this course will be on enhancing accurate identification via pattern recognition of abnormal eye movements that disrupt steady fixation and degrade vision. Through video presentations of ocular oscillations and ample case presentations, faculty will present the clinical features, localization, prognosis, and diagnostic implications of each eye movement.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to accurately identify nystagmus and saccadic intrusion patterns and to discuss the localization of each eye movement and common causative etiologies.
