The inaugural North West Neuro-Ophthalmology course aims to cover a variety of clinical neuro-ophthalmic complaints via succinct, interactive lectures. The lectures are delivered by a range of consultants specialising in neurology, neuro-ophthalmology, neuro-radiology, orbital disease and uveitis.
The course will be held on 6 July from 9am to 5pm at the Macdonald Hotel, Manchester.
Topics that will be covered include conditions that require urgent referral such as giant cell arteritis and painful horners syndrome, atypical presentations such as functional visual loss, imaging in neuro-ophthalmology, what to request and how to interpret it, and chronic conditions that require a multi-disciplinary approach such as myasthenia gravis.
The course is aimed at clinicians who may deal with neuro-ophthalmic patients such as general ophthalmologists, optometrists, trainee neurologists, ophthalmologists and neurosurgeons, and those working in general practice or the emergency department.
There is also the opportunity to present at the meeting during the free paper session.
Abstracts covering interesting cases or research pertaining to neuro-ophthalmology may be submitted.
The event has been approved for up to one CPD point per hour which can be self-allocated by attendees.
