Neuro-ophthalmology: Hot Topics 2021

Despite, the current difficult period due to Covid19, we were able to adjust to this slightly different way of presenting and are proud to bring new professional knowledge to a wider round.

The first SOE get-together as a webinar is on the 22 October 2021 and it includes six talks in the Neuro-Ophthalmology field, all by excellent international presenters. 

The topics which were chosen are a combination of the classical Neuro-Ophthalmology armamentarium, like “Life-threatening diplopia” and “The swollen optic disc”, as well as a current hot subject of interest: “The neuroophthalmological manifestations of Covid19”. All of us are very excited to host a webinar this year but are even more excited and looking forward to meeting face to face again, in Prague 2023.

Moderators: Shlomo Dotan (Israel), Jonathan Trobe (United States)

Life Threatening Diplopia – Andrew Lee (United States)
Positive Visual Phenomena – Gordon Plant (United Kingdom)
Neuro-ophthalmic Manifestations of COVID-19 – Karl Golnik (United States)

How to Prevent Myopia Onset and Reduce Myopia Progression

The prevalence of myopia and pathological myopia is increasing substantially and will become the most common cause of visual impairment and blindness in Europe unless we are acting now. There are already effective myopia control interventions to prevent myopia onset and to slow down its progression. The main aim of the webinar is to provide information and guidance for eye care practitioners how to prevent and manage the development and progression of myopia.
