The course will review multiple topics in clinical neuro-ophthalmology. The first day will consist of didactic lectures by experts in neuro-ophthalmology on various topics including giant cell arteritis, nystagmus, optic nerve sheath meninigioma, pseudotumor cerebri, third nerve palsy and the treatment of diplopia. On the second day, cases of common neuro-ophthalmologic problems will be presented to our panel who will discuss their practical approach to patient evaluation and management. Problems presented will include optic neuritis, neuroretinitis, neuromyelitis optica, ischemic optic neuropathy, hereditary optic neuropathy, anisocoria, diplopia, nystagmus and myasthenia gravis. The day will also include a session on the clinical/neuro-radiologic correlation of several neuro-ophthalmologic disease processes. The third day will start with case presentations by retina experts attempting to sort out the occasionally difficult question of "Is it optic nerve or is it retina?" as a cause of visual loss. The rest of the session will consist of multiple unusual case presentations with many useful clinical pearls presented by our expert neuro-ophthalmologists.
