Age Related Macular Degeneration- Current Concepts and Future Directions
You will gain a comprehensive review of AMD and the differentiation of “dry” and “wet”. You will learn the results of the latest clinical trials and an update on new technology that have changed the perspective on how patients with macular degeneration are managed. There has been an explosion of new options that you will be able to implement immediately as well as update you on future treatment modalities.
AMD Multimodal Imaging: Essential Concepts & Clinical Applications
Multimodal imaging brings together information from spectral domain ocular coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO) imaging. Combined, these imaging strategies open the door for new and exciting evaluative techniques of the retina and choroid by optometrists. This course offers an in depth review of multimodal imaging findings and diagnostic strategies for the full spectrum of age-related macular degeneration disease.

An Organized Approach to the Patient with Papilledema and Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension
This team taught course provides the attendee with an organized, systematic approach to the evaluation and management of a patient with disc edema secondary to elevated intracranial pressure. The presenters approach the material and the topic from their particular areas of expertise, providing the attendee with pearls for the clinical evaluation, neuro imaging, and relevant clinical anatomical correlates to the disease processes involved. Clinical presentation, chief complaints, clinical findings, neuroimaging findings, relevant anatomy, and patient management are discussed in detail.

Doctor, I See Double: Managing Cranial Nerve Palsies
This presentation provides necessary understanding of the signs and symptoms that accompany various types of neurogenic diplopia. An additional goal is to understand possible systemic implications and appropriate medical testing for patients presenting with diplopia. This course details in a case based format the diagnosis of patients presenting with diplopia. A diagnostic algorithm is presented to allow the audience member to follow the clinical findings to an appropriate differential diagnosis with emphasis on pertinent neuroanatomy and potential causative factors. Current therapeutic management and appropriate diagnostic testing is heavily emphasized and key points are reinforced with easy-to-remember 'Odes'.

FDA Approved Pharmaceuticals - New Agents and Updates
Every year the FDA approves numerous pharmaceuticals for the treatment of diseases in various medical therapeutic areas. This course will review the recently approved pharmaceuticals that are pertinent to optometric patient care. Pharmaceuticals covered will include but not limited to endocrinology, cardiology, vascular disease, infections, neurology, optometry, psychology, and urology. Indication of use, mechanism of action, and/or ocular side effects will be reviewed. This course is given by an optometrist and a Doctor in Pharmacy.
