Diabetic Retinopathy Standards of Care Update

Sandra Harpster, OD, FAAO
UC Berkeley School of Optometry & Vision Science

1 CE Hour
COPE Course 80719-TD

The sands of Diabetic Retinopathy management are shifting. Is CSME still a relevant term? Is panretinal photocoagulation the only management option for proliferative diabetic retinopathy? Do optometrists need to refer moderate nonproliferative retinopathy for treatment? And more updates from recent work done by the DRCR Network, which has had a profound impact on monitoring and treatment of patients with diabetic retinopathy. The lecture will focus on clinical cases and OCT interpretation.

Keynote: Decision-Making in Glaucoma

Carl Jacobsen, OD, FAAO
UC Berkeley School of Optometry & Vision Science

1 CE Hour
COPE Course 80785-GL

This course will provide the engaged participant with insight and guidance on making difficult decisions in glaucoma diagnosis and treatment. We will use a case-based format for real world examples of when to diagnose glaucoma, how to design a patient specific treatment plan, and how to monitor glaucoma patients. Our audience will be asked to participate and offer their opinions via multiple choice questions on each case.

Saturday, October 15, 2022 (11:00 - 11:50 AM PT)

Vision & Academics: Why Vision Beyond Acuity Matters!

Patrick Quaid, PhD, FCOVD, MCOptom
VUE Cubed Vision Rehabilitation Network

1 CE Hour
COPE Course 80720-FV

This presentation is intended to review current statistic on IEP (Individual Education Plan / learning difficulty) cases within Canadian Schools and the rates that are attributed to reading specifically. Costs to both society and the school system will be highlighted in addition to lost future income based on the Learning Disability Association of Canada statistics. How we learn to read from both a phonetic awareness aspect and a visual aspect will be reviewed in addition to how the brain required both repetitive and consistent input for this to occur. Anatomy of reading in terms of which brain aspects are mainly used in reading will also be reviewed. A review of the current literature on reading and vision will then be reviewed and critiqued in addition to presenting PubMed published data from Dr. Quaid in addition to upcoming publications showing that vision is an integral requirement for the emergence of the reading “reflex.”

Sunday, October 16, 2022 (9:00 - 10:40 AM PT)

Rapid Fire Cornea Survival Tips

Sophia Leung, OD, FAAO, Dipl. ABO
Seema Eye Care Centre & Clarity Laser Vision

COPE Course 80838-TD

How many times have we looked at a corneal lesion and thought to ourselves, what is happening here? This lecture, in a rapid-fire case-based format, will cover several tips, tricks, and pearls that will help practitioners navigate through a variety of corneal diseases that may be commonly encountered. Understanding the cornea and its behaviors can give clues to how to manage the underlying conditions.
