49187-NO: Mind-Bending Neuro-oph Grand Rounds (2 Hours)
Vision and visual-motor problems are commonly caused by neurologic disease. This course provides an anatomically-guided and case-based approach to disorders of the pre-chiasmal, chiasmal and retro-chiasmal visual pathways. Included within the lecture is an overview of the neuroimaging techniques required to address these problems. Included within the lecture are neurologic and neuro-ophthalmic findings associated with inflammatory, neoplastic, demyelinating and ischemic vascular disease.

49186-NO: The Non-Glaucomatous Optic Neuropathies Papilledema and Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension IIH (1 Hour)
Papilledema is defined as optic disc swelling and elevation owing to elevated intracranial pressure. Idiopathic intracranial hypertension IIH is a common cause of papilledema in young, obese women. This course discusses the clinical findings and staging of papilledema along with common causes of elevated intracranial pressure. In addition, papilledema in the setting of IIH is discussed as well as the noteworthy neuro-radiologic and OCT findings associated with IIH and papilledema. Special attention is paid to the management of IIH and the value of visual field testing in the long-term surveillance of these patients.

56283-NO: Understanding Alzheimers (1 Hour)
Alzheimers disease AD is the most common form of dementia presenting within elderly patients. As life expectancy is increasing within western societies, so too is the incidence and prevalence of AD. Numerous vision and visual-motor abnormalities are present in patients with Alzheimers disease and it is incumbent upon ophthalmic providers to be cognizant of these problems. Learn about the pathophysiology and staging of Alzheimers disease along with the neuro-radiological, visual and visual-motor findings in this overview. In addition, enjoy a comparative analysis of the clinical and neuro-radiological findings associated with AD and chronic traumatic encephalopathy CTE.
