The Treatment and Management of Uveitis in Optometric Practice (Credit, 1 Hour, 67693-SD)
This course discusses the diagnosis, classification, and treatment of uveitis. Focus is on the indication and tailoring of the laboratory work-up and co-management with the uveitis specialist. Current treatment options are covered with an emphasis on novel treatments. Several cases from our clinical hospital based practices are discussed.
A Grand Rounds Series (Credit, 1 Hour, 56969-AS)
Optometrists play a key role in diagnosing and managing anterior segment disease. When a red eye case falls out of the typical ones seen, the doctor must utilize their diagnostic skills to solve the patient’s problem. The following cases provide the clinician with useful tools to aid in the diagnosis and management of out of the ordinary anterior segment disease. 56969-AS
Doctor, I See Double: Managing Cranial Nerve Palsies (Credit, 1 Hour, 56982-NO)
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.' 56982-NO
Lid Lesions: Relax or Refer? (Credit, 1 Hour, 56976-AS)
Patients present with a variety of lumps and bumps associated with the ocular and periocular tissues.

Lifestyle Modification for Prevention & Management of Glaucoma (Credit, 1 Hour, 67661-GL)
Doctor, is there anything I can do besides starting medication or surgery? This is a common question from patients following diagnosis of glaucoma and one that many eye care providers are challenged to answer. As ophthalmic technology advances, eye care providers will be able to diagnose glaucoma earlier than ever, which means patients are likely to be younger, healthier, and more averse to starting IOP-lowering medication for the rest of their lives. As such, lifestyle modifications that can reduce IOP represent an exciting area in eye care. This presentation will review the many lifestyle factors known to influence IOP.
When Glaucoma Is Not Glaucoma
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.
