TD-Eyelid Ptosis: Make the Right Diagnosis
Two members of the Ptosis Consensus Group, which recently developed cutting-edge recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of acquired ptosis, will discuss the findings of the consensus group and how to apply them to our practices. They will review what constitutes an urgent referral; a non-urgent referral; and when and how optometrists can manage the condition themselves. The latter includes the important history questions; the causes of acquired ptosis; how to perform the clinical testing needed for documentation and diagnosis; a review of the literature; and a new pharmacological treatment that can be performed by optometrists in-office.

AOA Expiration Date:
A successful practice takes a village—doctors of optometry and paraoptometric staff—to make it work and even prosper. Toward that end, the AOA has created a trove of practice management tools and services that can power practices forward in a profession and health care landscape that increasingly demands doctors practice at their highest levels and creates greater opportunities to develop and empower paraoptometric staff. These days, change is out of necessity.
A recent #AskAOA webinar, hosted by the AOA Third Party Center, offered helpful advice for how doctors can address and respond to clawbacks.
Most states require health care providers, including doctors of optometry, to report cases of abuse of children and elderly adults. AOA members are invited to attend an important webinar on the serious subject of human trafficking.
