Synchronous Live Webinars


Sunday June 13, 2021


9:00 a.m. - 9:50 a.m. EDT Acute Retinal Necrosis: The Optometrist’s Role to Promptly Identify and Initiate Treatment (1 hour, PS*)

Andrew Crist, OD & Julie Golinski, OD, MS

We will review the quickly progressing and potentially visually debilitating condition known as acute retinal necrosis (ARN). The clinical presentation and management of ARN will be discussed along with laboratory tests to confirm the diagnosis. Furthermore, other inflammatory and infectious causes of posterior uveitis will be compared to ARN. Lastly, the role of optometrists to identify the classic signs of ARN with immediate initiation of treatment and referral will be discussed.

10:05 a.m. - 10:55 a.m. EDT Scleral Lens Grand Rounds: Using Advanced Fitting Techniques to Manage Challenging Cases (1 hour, CL)

Stephanie Pisano, OD & Chantelle Mundy, OD

Management of various ocular conditions with scleral contact lenses is a growing area with rapidly changing fitting techniques. Incorporating these techniques to customize the scleral lens to maximize ocular health and monitoring over time is essential for success. Advanced scleral lens design and fitting allows for a high degree of specificity to the underlying condition and ocular health considerations. This lecture will present cases that highlight complex diseases managed with scleral lenses, the fitting designs indicated, and what is necessary to manage for long term success.

11:10 a.m. - noon EDT Contrast sensitivity: The Pelli-Robson Chart and The (New) Ohio Contrast Cards (1 hour, LV)

Angela Brown, PhD

The Pelli-Robson Chart, can add important information to the examination of a low-vision patient. However, to provide the best possible information, the Pelli Robson chart should be used at a distance of 0.5 meters or less. Currently under development at Ohio State University, the Ohio Contrast Cards provide an even better measure of a patient’s contrast sensitivity, and it can be used on patients who cannot read an eye chart.

12:15pm a.m. - 1:05 p.m. EDT Co-management of Anterior Segment Procedures (1 hour, PO*)

Abigail Menner, OD

Description of various anterior ocular surgical procedures and conditions as well as their co-management strategies including complication management, follow-up schedule, and referral recommendations.
