Topic(s): Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-otology
Director(s): Nancy Newman MD, FAAN
Description: Clinical neuro-ophthalmology is the overlap specialty between neurology and ophthalmology. It covers all the disorders of both the afferent (the eye, optic nerve, and intracranial pathways of vision) and efferent (pathways of ocular motility) visual systems which comprise more than one-third of the brain. As a result, nearly every neurologic disorder can have neuro-ophthalmologic manifestations. This overview and update is a rapid-fire review of neuro-ophthalmologic disorders, highlighting the most recent developments in diagnosis, pathogenesis, and management, approached in an anatomical fashion. There will be substantial designated time for audience questions.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize and appreciate common and uncommon neuro-ophthalmologic disorders and neuro-ophthalmologic manifestations of common and uncommon neurologic diseases, and be familiar with the latest developments in the field.
CME Credits: 2
