NO-Swollen Optic Nerves from the OD to the Neuro-Ophthalmologist's Perspective
Optic nerve head pathology including swelling can range from very benign that only requires monitoring all the way to a life threatening emergency. This interactive 2-hour lecture in a grand rounds format will review and update the most common causes of ONH swelling, pseudo-swelling and papilledema. The discussion will be both from an OD's perspective as well as a neuro-ophthalmologist.

AOA and AFOS: ‘Cut through the noise’ and empower licensed doctors of optometry to provide greater access to care to veterans
Eye care is the third-most requested health service by veterans at the VA—and doctors of optometry provide the majority of that care. Yet, as the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) considers new national standards of practice for more than 50 health professions at its facilities, optometrists are making a winning case for expanding their role at an understaffed VA and are galvanizing against baseless attacks from organized medicine, ophthalmology and a few unbending legislators.
September is Paraoptometric Appreciation Month, celebrating optometric practice staff around the country. Two paraoptometric professionals who provide eye care as active-duty veterans in the United States Armed Forces share their stories.
