Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 08: Melanoma/Neuritis/Pain.

The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of uveal melanoma, neuromyelitis optica, and ocular pain. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Select among radiotherapy, phototherapy, and surgical excision for treatment of uveal melanoma.
2. Differentiate uveal melanoma from other types of tumors and predict the likelihood of metastasis.
3. Diagnose optic neuritis due to multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica (NMO).
4. Prescribe appropriate treatment of NMO.
5. Assess and manage the symptoms of chronic eye pain, especially after laser in situ
keratomileusis.

The original programs were presented by Bertil Damato, MD, PhD, Honorary Professor of Ophthalmology, University of Liverpool; Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon and Director, Ocular Oncology Service, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals, Liverpool, England. James J. Corbett, MD, Professor of Neurology and Ophthalmology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, MS, and Todd P. Margolis, MD, PhD, Professor of Ophthalmology; Director, F.I. Proctor Foundation; Director, Ralph and Sophie Heintz Research Laboratory, University of California, San Francisco.
