Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 10: Perspectives on Neuro-Ophthalmology.
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of neuro-ophthalmologic disorders. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Interpret patients’ histories and descriptions of their symptoms and complaints.
2. Diagnose and treat ptosis, proptosis, diplopia, and various neuropathies and myopathies.
3. Determine whether patients with symptoms of optic neuropathy or third nerve palsy should be referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist.
4. Perform differential diagnosis for patients with chronic optic neuritis.
5. Identify and refer patients with Tolosa-Hunt syndrome and amaurosis fugax.
The original programs were presented by Bradley Farris, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology, Adjunct Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery, and Director, Neuro Fellowship, University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Dean McGee Eye Institute, Oklahoma City, and Andrew G. Lee, MD, Professor of Ophthalmology, Neurology, and Neurological Surgery, Weill Cornell Medical College; Chair of Ophthalmology, Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX.
