    Critical tests to assess vision with concussions and TBIs

    Lisa Bakker

    Vision on a letter chart is the least reliable test to see the effects of a concussion or mTBI. As concussion patients can experience vergence and accommodation dysfunctions along with oculomotor difficulties and abnormal egocentric spatial localisation, there are a number of tests outside of a normal testing procedure that can be used to find out if vision is affected post concussion. Although not exhaustive, this workshop will look at easy to implement extra testing to ascertain if and what part of a concussion patient’s vision is negatively affected by the injury.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    ·       To develop a thorough Case History for concussion patients, including the BIVSS and symptoms in SCAT5.

    ·       To be competent in testing for Patterned Glare, dynamic VA, vergence, accommodation and oculomotor skills which can all be affected by a concussion.

    What lies beyond the diagnosis? A holistic approach in practice to empower people with vision loss.

    Dr Sau Kuan (Janet) Cheong

    Visual impairment for every person is unique in terms of onset, diagnosis, progression, and treatment. Losing your vision and adjusting to life with limited or no vision can be a scary and confronting experience. While the primary loss is losing the ability to see, the associated secondary losses are often overlooked. Thus, the impact of vision impairment travels beyond the physical loss and quickly expands to a person’s social, emotional, and psychological functioning. 

    At Guide Dogs Queensland, we empower individuals with low or no vision and their families to overcome the barriers and look to the future with hope and confidence as they adjust to a new life. The practice at Guide Dogs Queensland uses a person-centred, multidisciplinary approach to provide a holistic service. The service includes Orientation and Mobility, Guide Dog Mobility, Occupational Therapy, Assistive Technology, Psychology, and Lifestyle and Leisure programs. Adjustment period may vary from individual to individual; hence, it is crucial that the services are tailored to the client’s needs while taking into consideration their readiness to engage.

    In this session, I would like to demonstrate how services are delivered at Guide Dogs Queensland to support clients through the period of adjustment. 

     

    Learning Objectives:

    ·       Understanding of the secondary loss associated to vision impairment.

    ·       Understanding of the multidisciplinary approach to service delivery for individuals with low or no vision and their families.

    ·       Practical engagement to illustrate the functionality of the multidisciplinary approach in practice.

    What optometrists should know about visual snow

    Dr Bao Nguyen

    Visual snow syndrome is a neurological disorder that has not always been well recognised. Since the first report of “persistent television snow” appearing in the literature in 1995, it has taken over 20 years for diagnostic criteria to be proposed (in 2018). This presentation will provide an overview of visual snow (the symptom) and visual snow syndrome (encompassing a range of visual and non-visual symptoms), so that optometrists can be better equipped to recognise the condition and better support people living with visual snow.

    Learning Objectives:

    By the end of this presentation, learners will be able to:

    ·       Explain visual snow and visual snow syndrome to patients and their families.

    ·       Understand how visual snow syndrome can affect a person’s daily life.

    "Glaucoma - Simple or Complex? When do I call for help?!"

    Professor Graham Lee

    The “glaucoma” patient has many presentations in everyday practice. There are ocular hypertensive patients who have intraocular pressures measured outside the normal range, but no damage to the optic nerve. The glaucoma suspects are patients who may have glaucoma and need to be assessed as to whether they can be observed or commenced on lifelong treatment. Those diagnosed with glaucoma may have early optic neuropathy with no detectable visual field loss and well-controlled intraocular pressures. Other glaucoma patients have advanced optic neuropathy with field loss to within 10 degrees of fixation and poorly controlled pressures.  All these patients require a tailored management approach - such is the spectrum of glaucoma.

     

    Learning Outcomes:

    ·       Recognise glaucoma patients who need to be monitored closely.

    ·       Identify glaucoma patients who need to be upgraded in their management before further progression of their visual field.

    ·       Refer glaucoma patients at high risk of progression, who may have failed medical treatment and are likely to need filtration surgery to achieve their target pressures.
