September 9, 2011 Meeting Conference


Neuro-Ophthalmology

Objectives:

Participants will learn the important neuro-ophthamic considerations for patients with Neurofibromatosis; will understand the relationship between Familial Dysautonomias and hereditary optic neuropathies; will recognize the important aspects of optic neuropathy in the setting of craniosynostoses; will recognize the systemic problems associated with optic nerve hypoplasia; will develop an approach to managing the approach to patients with optic nerve hypoplasia;will understand the differential diagnostic considerations for patients with optic neuritis; will develop an approach to treating pediatric patients with intracranial hypertension and consideration of systemic disease; will understand a case report of quetiapine induced intracranial hypertension and the consequences.

Pediatrics

OBJECTIVES: At the end of the session attendees should be familiar with: recognizing and managing aphakic and pseudophakic glaucoma in infants; IOL options and vision outcomes post lensectomy in infancy; and  refractive changes in the infant eye.  In addition, the attendees will leave with an enhanced understanding of the many sources of  monocular and binocular diplopia, an  appreciation of unanticipated causes of presumptive congenital strabismus, and acquired strabismus from peri-orbital local anesthesia.
