Vom Veranstalter gemeldetes Programm:

This session will allow an insight into how patients with neurological emergencies are assessed and managed in hospital eye services. It is important optometrists recognise their own limits and identify when patients require urgent treatment.
We will discuss the various investigations required, including pupil reactions and how they may be affected in Horner’s Syndrome and third nerve palsies and how some medications can be used to differentiate causes of anisocoria.
We will discuss patients with unusual causes of binocular vision anomalies including Wernicke’s encephalopathy and how to examine patients suspected of having papilloedema.

Target audience: Optometrist
Competencies covered: Ocular examination, Ocular disease, BV and Standards of practice
Learning objectives:
  • To understand the investigation of pupil reations and the presentation of Horner’s Syndrome
  • To understand the causes and management of various neurological conditions that require urgent referral (including Horner's syndrome, sudden onset diplopia and papilloedema)
  • To understand the investigation and possible causes of sudden onset diplopia that may require urgent referral
  • To understand how to examine effectively the optic disc to recognise abnormalities such as papilloedema
  • To understand the signs and symptoms of patients presenting with ocular pathology requiring urgent referral
