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.

Learn about the priority federal issues that hundreds of optometrists and optometry students will take to Capitol Hill as part of optometry’s single-largest annual advocacy gathering, April 14-16, and how you can join.
Although about 13% of the U.S. population is Black, they are woefully underrepresented in optometry. They represent about 2% of practicing doctors of optometry and a little over 3% of full-time students in optometry schools and colleges, according to studies. Black doctors of optometry seek to grow those numbers.
