Specialist Certificate in the Management of Neuro-Ophthalmic Disorders

What will I study?


In this online course, you will learn the context of evaluating visual complaints, and gain further knowledge of how visual and ocular motor signs may reflect a range of systemic conditions, particularly of the central nervous system.

Because complaints related to neuro-ophthalmic disorders may reflect problems arising anywhere from the anterior visual pathways to the higher-order visual cortices, all optometrists can benefit from a deeper understanding of the current state of knowledge of these pathways and their assessment.
