This 2-part webinar series of Dr Gordon Plant’s Festschrift has brought together possibly the most prestigious line-up of world-renowned neuro-ophthalmologists ever assembled. This webinar will provide a unique opportunity to learn from the expertise of the international neuro-ophthalmic community and improve individual practice in this area.

Neuro-ophthalmology can be problematic for many because of the overlap in required skills and knowledge between the disciplines of ophthalmology and neurology.

The 2-part webinar will take the format of a traditional scientific tribute to one of the world’s most celebrated neuro-ophthalmologists, and provide a platform for international experts in neuro-ophthalmology to review topics relating to their practice and clinical research. 

Neurologists and ophthalmologists will benefit by improving their understanding of neuro-ophthalmic practice in 2021. 

Topics to be covered:

  • Current thinking on pathogenesis and management of conditions presenting to neurology and ophthalmology clinics. 
  • How to manage eye disorders in the neurological context 
  • Confidence in dealing with clinical conditions where there is overlap in required expertise and training between neurology and ophthalmology
