COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The majority of patients with multiple sclerosis have atrophy of the retinal nerve fiber layer and thinning of the ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer regardless of their optic neuritis history. New studies have determined that these findings may be associated with disease progression. Therefore, it is important for optometry to collaborate and communicate with neurologists to establish more holistic care of the patient.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • To better co-manage multiple sclerosis between optometry and neurology
  • To learn to use optic nerve and nerve fiber layer OCT to monitor changes in multiple sclerosis
  • To correlate OCT structural changes with functional changes in visual acuity, contrast, and visual field
