About this event

  • Date and time Thu 9 Jul 2020 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences

This webinar will explore common clinical problems in neuro-ophthalmology, and the diagnosis and management of these conditions. 

There will be an interactive video session with presentations of clinical cases and diagnosis. 

This is first joint meeting at the RSM between the Neurosciences and Ophthalmology Sections. This webinar will be especially beneficial to general neurologists and ophthalmologists who encounter these common, and often difficult neuro-ophthalmological disorders, in busy outpatient clinics. 

During this webinar you will learn:

  • How to assess and manage patients with “swollen discs”  - the impact of OCT in this condition will be covered
  • Imaging techniques used to diagnose neuro-ophthalmological diseases
