The Neuro-ophthalmology of Concussion The Evaluation Management of Vision and Visual-motor Abnormalities (58521-NO 2 Hours)
The CDC estimates that there are approximately 4 million sports-related concussions in the United States per year. Most concussions still go unrecognized for a variety of reasons. Research has shown that vision and visual-motor abnormalities are frequently associated with concussion and serve as validated biomarkers for initial diagnosis and long-term management. This course provides an overview of pathophysiology of concussion. We will review the clinical picture of concussion and the significant effect on the visual system. Additional focus will be on the optometric examination sequence and the role the optometrist plays in the decision for the concussion patient to return to their previous level of activity. 

Prescription Formulas for the Pediatric Patient (50118-PH 1 Hour)
This course will review the most commonly available ocular medications in the pediatric population. Diagnostic, antibiotic, and allergy agents will be presented with the age approvals, proper dosage, and side effects of each discussed. Presentations of the anterior and posterior segment pathology frequently diagnosed in the pediatric population and the proper treatment and follow-up care for each will conclude this presentation.

The Tear Free Infant Examination (49397-FV 1 Hour)
This lecture will review infant examination techniques and clinical presentations as well as deviations from normal in the infant population. The expected findings in the areas of developmental milestones and ocular systems will be presented. Methods of visual acuity determination, detection of strabismus and amblyopia, and common refractive errors will be discussed. The goals of this course include increasing the practitioners comfort level when dealing with infants and stressing the importance of early intervention. The use of practical case examples and illustrative photographs aid the participants learning.
