  • Ezell Fellows Present: Contact Lens Discomfort: More Than (Where the Lens) Meets the Eye

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/09/2018

    Patient-reported awareness or discomfort with contact lenses is known to be common and increase throughout the lens wearing period and replacement cycle. Contact lens discomfort (CLD) is also a common cause for cessation of lens wear, and accordingly not only a struggle for patients, but also care providers, researchers, and lens manufacturers. This talk will discuss factors related to (1) the contact lens material and overall design, (2) the ocular surface, and (3) attributes and characteristics other than the contact lens and ocular surface which impact patient-reported CLD. Updates on new research, as well as treatments, and possible future directions will be provided.

  • Infectious Retina 101

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/08/2018

    Infectious retinal diseases are devastating, as they can to lead permanent visual field and acuity loss. They can be due to a variety of causes including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and can be found not only in immune competent patients, but also, at times more frequently, in immune-comprised patients such as those with advanced acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Many of these conditions are potentially blinding, therefore early diagnosis, testing, and treatment are vital. This lecture will focus on select conditions that can manifest in the retina with a discussion on pathogenesis, signs/symptoms, testing, and treatment.

  • Some Common (and Some Not So Common) Posterior Pole Observations & Their Management

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/22/2017

    Eight different case presentations will be shared that range from specific vasculopathies to retinal toxicity from commonly used medications. Specific ancillary diagnostic techniques such as MR imaging, specific blood markers and OCT-A imaging will highlight the need for on-going investigation and surveillance in certain cases in order to make a timely diagnosis and assure adequate treatment. Multiple case examples may mimic common eye conditions such as glaucoma and other conditions that affect the optic nerve and retina. Coordination of care with medical sub-specialties is essential to assure the best outcome possible and when indicated will be emphasized in this course.

  • When Glaucoma Is Not Glaucoma

    Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/22/2017

    This course discusses cases of optic nerve pallor and other abnormalities in patients diagnosed with or suspected to have glaucoma. It is imperative to recognize and properly manage optic nerve pallor especially when presenting simultaneously in glaucoma patients and suspects. Key features to identify compressive tumors and other neurological lesions as well as retinal disease are presented to assist in accurate diagnoses. Utilizing ancillary testing including: fundus photography, visual field testing, and optical coherence tomography can provide additional diagnostic information to aid in the diagnosis of these patients.
